Paying the price...

Thursday, June 06, 2013

Had a bad evening, after a tiring day. Ed came home with cookies. I've asked him many times not to, but he got them for himself while on the road, and didn't want to end up eating the whole package. Good thinking on his part, not on mine.

I'm OK with refusing and stepping away. What I still need a LOT of work on is having one, THEN stepping away. It was almost surreal, how one cookie led to the next, which led to the next. By the time I started to feel ill, I had eaten 6!!!. (Gasp!) The sugar is almost like a drug: I stopped thinking and just started reacting.

I didn't go for the walk I had planned. I didn't sleep well. As a consequence, I overslept, and now I'm trying to catch up. Plus, my weight bounced up 3.5 pounds overnight!! Oh, the horror of the sugar hangover...

Ed did bring home a 2nd box. I'm going to suggest that we save it and bring it to the open house on church Sunday. And I will have to work extra-hard to detox myself from this sugar binge.

Over and out ~~

    You have asked him not to do it and he still does? What does that tell you? Next time he brings them home take them from him when he offers them and immediately THROW THEM AWAY.

You will be amazed at how GOOD it feels to do that. It feels much better than eating them does. You will get a rush from your power over the food regained, and your husband will get the message that you mean it.

You are stronger than a cookie! It is not a waste to throw junk away, so banish any thoughts of that. It would be a greater WAIST if you eat them.

And for now, it is in the past. Don't beat yourself up over it. Just focus on how much fun you will have throwing them away next time.

    I know how that is. I have trouble sticking to just one too. I am trying to do a sugar detox right now and its not easy but like Maryam said, every minute is a new minute and a time to start again. It's good that your body was telling you to stop. Be gentile with yourself, I know you can do this. emoticon

    Why is it so hard to only have one. If they are not in the house we don't even think about it. I know I feel the same as you. When I eat something like this now I don't feel good. Maybe that is a very good sign. We didn't use to feel like this!

  Sugar is definitely a trigger for me. I've yet to manage only 'one' of anything, but I'm working on it. emoticon

    I can relate. Been there. Done that. Today is a brand new day, fresh with no mistakes. Be gentle to yourself today and be sure to drink your water. It will help to flush out your system.
