just sayin’ … big mistake

Thursday, June 06, 2019



Day 5 … arrrrrgh …just shoot me now. Throbbing head that feels like it is in a vice grip. Tummy hates me … fiercely. I’ve been awake since 3am.

Do you experience the “yuckies” each time you start over after eating a load of … crap??? The detox or withdrawal body’s response to the sudden change??? Not gorging it on an abundance of crap, sugar … huge portions of carbs … and it turns on you. Or am I the only ... victim at my own hands???

Why the heck do I continue to do this to myself??? Big … mistake. Maybe I should just shoot Elvira my evil twin.

I shared that I have learned a lot from gaining back a jillion pounds after losing 100. I also learned a lot during my month-long vacation and on the cruise itself.

I am formulating Cat’s Calm, Cool and Collective plan … NOT a plan of attack. NOT a change everything in the first nano second. NOT an on and off and on again plan. Not a diet. More … later.

This was our first cruise ever and plan more in the future. We traveled with Royal Caribbean. Our second day at sea … the g-kids asked to swim. Sounds like a good plan. They are 8, 6 and 2 ½ … and they were not allowed to allllll be in the same area. Huh??? Well that’s a bummer. We made the best of the situation, came up with a new workable plan and they had a blast.

The afternoon was spent watching an international ice-skating program. WOW.

And the food on the ship … OH, MY GOODNESS!!! More on this … later.

Change your mind … and the rest WILL follow.

    It takes a while for your brain and gut to be in sync. I like it when I get hungry and I crave something fresh and natural.

    No, the detox symptoms are very, very real! The food onboard ships is just toally temptation city. Give your body a few days, lots of water and movement and you'll feel better.

    HUGS and glad you enjoyed the cruise That's my preferred method of travel also.

    Yes, I too feel like crap after eating crap, usually without headache, but still it feels bad enough.
    Main reason why I do my best to stay on track ; )

    I never learn either. And frankly, looking at the Popeyes Hot Honey Crunch Tenders advertisement I'm looking at alongside your post doesn't help - LOL!

    O, dang yes withdrawal from stuff is brutal. I think sugar might be the worst one, even worse than alcohol!

    Just because the food is there you don't have to eat it! emoticon I went on an all inclusive many years ago and ignored the breads and pastries and didn't put on much weight. Never ignored the included alcohol either.

    I agree though Cat, I never learn either! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    My system seems to have flip-flopped over the years of learning to eat healthier. NOW, I get the yuckies the day after I consume sugar / fatty stuff. Eat decently for two or three days and I'm all better and vowing never to do THAT again. Eat decently for a couple of weeks and suddenly I think I can "go back there". Yes, the lies we tell ourselves!

    Honesty to oneself is key! emoticon emoticon
