Yesterday was the first day on my low glycemic diet through the Herman Memorial Hospital and my Insurance Company and case management nurse. WOW I did NOT do well yesterday and I can see that the fish sandwiches on wheat may have to go away
I can always convince myself that eating the fish is healthy and loaded with omega 3's but then I have to remind myself of the fact it is fried. I of course do not want to eat it without the yummy tartar sauce but I can go home and put my sugar free ketchup on instead. I CAN say that I eat it on a whole wheat bun!
My counselor stated that NO food is ever completely off limits, but I will need to adjust the amount I enjoy at any given time. So day two is in progress. So far I am doing ok and I am happy with the fact that I have been able to restrain from over indulging so far. I will admit that the PB&J sandwiches I made the children was doing some heavy duty tempting >:/ (EVIL PB & J's!)
The problem I have is that the later the day becomes, the more I feel the stresses of said day and the harder it becomes for me to turn away from the feel good foods that will (in my mind) make me feel comforted. The more stress I have the angrier I become from the lack of control over my own life and circumstances. THIS my friends is a vicious cycle that I have to get the upper hand on. It's not the lack of control over the stress in my life that is the problem, it's the lack of control I have over my reaction to the stress roller coaster I ride each and every day.
So on with day two......
