Confession, yet AGAIN!!! It is so strange, but more often than not one messed up day clears the road to another one and another one and so on... yes, it was all mucked up again, and the munchies made themselves comfortable.
It all started with going to donate blood. I had never done so before for the sole reason that they didn't want my blood at various times when I tried. At times it was for low iron levels (enough for me but not enough to donate) and other time I had been in tropical countries within the last 12 months or something like it... and then of course I was pregnant and my iron was rather abyssal... hmmm, it is rather strange that my iron often is rather low, I most certainly don't look like an anemic person, way too dark for it... but I digress... anyways, today I braved the needle and hoped the iron played along which it did (no one actually tells you how much that jolly needle actually hurts to put in and to take out again... and I used to be a nurse, I should know). Even if you have never donated blood before (like myself) you most likely know that there is always lots of treats to be eaten afterwards to get some sugar into you. I have to confess, it had slipped my memory though, so I wasn't really mentally prepared for it, yet I restrained from the sweets but drank some OJ, ate an apple, 2 mandarins and was still hungry, really hungry, and had some savory crackers... I left the place still hungry though... so I fell into the munchies trap once again... I was SO cold the rest of the day and hungry and my arm hurt (pity party.. . I'm much better now though).
So, I was munching today, but I tried to stay away from unhealthy options, but rather munched on apples, apple sauce, some cheese, mango and some honey on bread... unfortunately I can't even remember everything, let alone track it for today... ou well... I won't let this defeat me though. I will not take it as an excuse to mindlessly start binging again, saying "On Monday, that's when I will be a "good" girl again, until then I will have fun without limits" in other words stuff myself stupid. I WILL NOT!!!!! So, I had two munchy days... SO WHAT???? Tomorrow is a new day with a new glorious chance.
And boy, am I grateful that I don't HAVE to be perfect, that everyone mucks up at times, yet there is always a new chance around the corner again and again... AND I'm grateful for frog beanies... wouldn't you agree??? Especially if that beany happens to be on top of such a little, adorable tyke.
