my weekend off the healthy train

Monday, February 09, 2009

I did not just step off the train this past weekend - I took a flying leap!!!!! hee hee In this time of economic struggles, I am really trying to pare down the grocery bill - difficult to do while trying to feed three men! But, they all take lunches every day, and the snack foods can be costly. SO, i brilliantly decided that I would try to bake something each week for lunches. I made frosted sugar cookies on Sunday morning. PROBLEM - when I buys snacks I buy stuff that they like and I do not, and so I do not ever feel inclined to eat it. I unfortunately LOVE sugar cookies, and ate seven yesterday. Yes my friends, I said SEVEN. My husband was waiting for me to go into a diabetic coma by the end of the night. I just could not seem to control myself - I was driven my this horrid sugar need, like some sort of addict. I did no exercise either - awful!!!!! But I woke up this morning renewed, resisted the urge to bring cookies to work.

Okay, there was my confession. I am now returned to the straight and narrow.

    OK, so you leapt off the wagon yesterday BUT you climbed back on today. It's OK to leap every so often, it keeps your body guessing. I took a running jump at the weekend too. Our local supermarket has jelly babies on buy one get one free for their big bags and I bought them. OOPS! I ate a whole bag on Saturday and the other one yesterday. Back on the wagon today, too, though.

    Take care

    Oh that's why I simply can not bake sugar cookies. There is no way I would be able to pass them up and once you get the taste in your mouth...mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

    Sounds like it's a lot cheaper, health-wise, to stick with buying those goodies...especally as you can pick things that don't appeal...!

    I fell off the wagon the week of Christmas as my DW was baking goodies...I let the carby demon out and couldn't put it back in the box for the week...picked up EIGHT POUNDS in just a few short days!! Then I slammed the lid shut...no more sugary, sweet carby things for me! It's just too risky and isn't worth the steep price I pay!
