Well, who remembers dreams from the night before? I do, especially when it involves chocolate cake, brownies, chocolate chips and ICECREAM!!!!!
It was a round table set up and all the desserts looked equally delicious! In my dream, I didn't want to have to choose, so after a lot of contemplation I finally decided on the brownies. Well, as dreams go, I ate all the brownies, then all the chocolate cake, cookies and icecream in a non-stop gulping fashion. I thought, that's weird, I am eating like a pig and I don't even feel full? Well, I wish I knew it was a dream at the time because I had all the bad GUILT of over eating! I thought, I totally blew my diet and gained all my weight back. I have no self control and I am a loser, so I thought.
WHEW! When I woke up I was totally relieved that it was all just a total nightmare and I didn't mess up. I evaluated the situation. There are no desserts in my home, and I have my husband shop and pick up a few things temporairly so I am not tempted in the grocery store of buying the all wrong things. The best diet starts with the shopping cart, so what goes in the cart, does end up on the waist line.
So, in life I avoid the dessert dilemma and it chases and taunts me in my sleep! I can't get any rest from the dancing sugar plums in my head! They say your dreams tell you things, and I think that desserts in my life are getting a bad wrap from me! I mean I felt fine in my dream, but I did feel a whole lot of guilt. What does that mean?
I think dreams are a difficult thing to unravel, but my gut feeling is that I am being too restrictive on my diet. As a solution, I am planning to address my sweet tooth at the local grocery store and pick up some low fat icecream and plan it sparingly into my diet. Hopefully, that will resolve the deep seated issues plaguing my psyche and stop me from ever having dessert nightmares again!
Maybe my next dream will be about fruits and vegetables!
