Learning the same lesson...

Saturday, July 17, 2010

This week I've been indulging in a few more high carb treats than I should be. Then I started to wonder why I was feeling a bit run down. Duh!
Why is it that I need to learn this same lesson over and over again? Every time I step away from the basics (whole grains, lean protein and lots of fruits and veggies) I start feeling less energy.
You would think I would have figured it out by now, but every time it happens I try to trick myself into thinking that it's not my eating habits.
Well, it's silly and I want to put a stop to it, but I'm not sure how. I wonder how I can stop making excuses for eating junk food?

    You ask great questions. I think just try, try again. Each time, you will "falter" for a shorter length of time, because you recognize now how negatively that type of food affects you. You'll be back on the wagon even faster. Eventually, it may just "stick." Great job of recognizing what's going on, though!

    i found that the only way that i could possibly stop eating all the things that were bad for me was to refuse to buy it! My s/o was a little upset at first --- he loves chips and chocolate almost as much as I did,a nd when they weren't in the house when he wanted them ---well, it wasn't pretty! It's been over a year since I had my last potato chip and he's learned to be supportive. Now if he wants them, he has to pick them up himself! It's worked for me! If you don't have it around you, you can't eat it, and can settle for the good stuff, instead!

    If i can do it, anyone can. Good luck!
