Sugar Addicts Anonymous: Daily Accountability Needed

Tuesday, April 03, 2012

I crave sweets because I'm a sugar/carb ADDICT. No lie. I've thought about going to a 12-step program (I'm so not kidding). Been feeling frustrated and angry, which also causes a carb reaction (anger and tiredness are my carb-nemesises). I'm resolving my frustration and anger (going to the chiro for some energy work helped significantly), and trying to keep my goals in mind, instead. That's also helping. I ALSO edited what I'm subscribed to in Facebook. I edited what I see from what people post (no more likes, comments, and "other activity") and I also took myself out of two groups, that while helpful, have been more drama-causing than anything. If I ever need to re-join, it's an option, but I really need to spend my time in a more productive (SP! Hobbies! House! Kids!) manner.

I logged on tonight to SP thinking "Well, time to weigh-in. Effed that up." But it's TUESDAY so even though the weigh-in won't be great, it's not horrible, either. I got all my numbers in for today, so I'm still in the running for the trophy! LOL While on, I realized I really, really need daily accountability...for EVERYTHING. I don't complain or lose sight so easily when I record everything (cardio, ST, goodies, food) all the time.

I miss the week 1 and 2 Mini (tracking everything), so I'm going to keep it going. I have to, or it's not going to happen elsewhere. Also, I didn't poo-poo the cardio in that format, even though it was just as required as this week. (Isn't that the most head-shaking disbelieving thing ever?) Yes, I COULD just log everything in every day where it belongs, but putting it all in one place as "notes" is very helpful for me, and I'm able to chat with my team and play the required games for my trophy points at the same time while online, so it's all good.

Time to put the baby to bed, drink some water (dehydration...also a carb-craving trigger), and go clean up my scrapbooking for an hour. Or clean the house. It still needs it, too, lol.

    I think I may be a sugar addict as well and hunger rarely comes into the equation when it comes to sweets.
