Temporary Setback

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Yesterday one of the ladies I've had a bit of 'tension' (disagreement) with brought one of those ooey gooeyh store-bought raspberry and peach pound cakes to a meeting at my house as a sort of peace offering. (Or a deliberate set up, I'm not absolutely certain.) But she was all smiley and nice.

She had a big piece of the homemade applesauce crisp (Spark Recipe) that I made.

So I cut myself a 1/3" wedge of her cake. It wasn't very much but it was nasty. After 2 bites, I knew if I'd eaten more I would have thrown up.

I'm really surprised. I really don't like that kind of stuff anymore. Before I started Sparking and eating good food, I could have easily eaten half of her pound cake.

Eating it didn't make me want more sugar - it was just the opposite. The thought of anything sweet just made me sick.

I really couldn't face eating anything after that. I drank a lot of water. Later I tried to eat a salad with lots of protein added to it, but could barely get it down.

Today my tummy still is out of sorts and I feel like this

But this is just a temporary set back.
Tomorrow's a new day and I'll get my Sparkle on again.

Hope you're having a great day!!!

    I have noticed I don't crave some sweet things as I used to either.

    Okay, please avert your eyes if you are offended by rough language:

When someone brings one of those dastardly pink boxes of doughnuts or other baked goods into the office break room, my wife cannot avoid going in there because she is an executive assistant and the boss of making sure the coffee is always flowing for the paramedics and EMTs.

Every time she sees delicious, tempting, sugary, fatty treats like that, she gestures at them and shouts out loud, "F*&k YOU, DOUGHNUTS!", and keeps charging right past them, no matter who she offends.

Probably wouldn't sit well with visiting guests, though.

    I find it hard to deal with situations where I'm a guest at someone's house for dinner and EVERYTHING they serve is unhealthy. My mother taught us that it's rude to turn down food in such situations so the last time it happened, I ate two bites of everything. It's hard sometimes in social situations.

Since I've been diagnosed with cancer, it is much easier for me to say "no" to homemade sweets, but it still can get complicated at times.

    You know Cat - I'm sitting here scratching my head thinking "what set back?" This is PROGRESS, Girl!!! You had a taste, decided you didn't like it -- and STOPPED! That to me sounds like a very positive breakthrough!

I am happy for you!

    First, I hope you feel better.

Good job on making healthy choices at your meeting. I don't call 2 bites of Pound Cake a set back. I think a emoticon is in order for not eating more!

I thought I had lost all of my desire for deserts too, but this weekend I bought some candies from a specialty shop ( Chocolate Cherry (I love that combination) and Chocolate Brittle ( my new found love). I have had no trouble gobbling them up emoticon I better get this in check real soon just as you have.

    Isn't it great how your desire for sweets goes away the longer you abstain!

    Yes, it IS amazing and in a very good way, how our bodies morph into desiring what we were SUPPOSED to eat to begin with. Good Going!

    How wonderful for you! I can only hope to tame my sweet tooth that well some day. You are awesome.

    I wish I could get past sweets. I go WEEKS without them, but when I eat some it just screams, "More!" Sure hope your tummy gets better soon, though.

    Wish I could say the same thing. I still love sweets, and crave them sometimes. The biggest change I've noticed is that I really don't like salty things anymore.

    I never was much of a sweets eater, but I did like pumpkin pie. Now, I haven't had pumpkin pie in 3, almost 4 yrs. Saturday past we were in Costco. My husband took a sample of the evil pumpkin pie (which I used to like). I just had to take a teeny taste, and I did. OMG!!! My only thought was how in the world could I have eaten this! Just soooooo sweet even the small taste I had made my teeth chatter! So, that was a good sign to me! Sounds like your experience was a good sign that your taste buds are more acclimated to healthy eating too. Hurray!

    This is proof that you are on your way to a healthy lifestyle. I too don't like the overly sweet taste any more either.
