Do Not Cheat, It Affects Your Energy And Mood!!!!!!

A reminder to myself.........
Everytime you want to pick up that cookie or french bread, potatoe chip, or candy, cake or sandwhich, remember how aweful it makes you feel Nicki!

Yesterday I ate shortbread cookies and a sandwhich on my favorite, a french roll. I woke up today and couldn't function. Litereally couldn't fuction. My brain had felt as if it were shut off. I was extremely grumpy. Not wanting to be bothered by my children or husband. Slow, tired, worn out over nothing but the things I put into my body that I personally know it cannot handle.

Nicki you can pass over the cookies and bad carbs your body can live without. You need to develop a taste for the whole foods you should be eating. A taste for lean meat and fish. Think not of getting thin so much as the way your mind and body operate on junk. Focus on feeling good. Eating correctly for your own personal body. You can do this! 10 lbs a month is not too much to ask for your tired and worn joints, your depression, your sluggish mental capacity, your cloudy brain, and your hurting tummy to gradually diminish and repair themselves.

    Thanks for posting this to remind us, my goal this year is to eat less junk foods and try to eat more healthy and work out more. It is not worth if feeding our body with poison.

    Thank you everyone!!! I am pre-diabetic so it does affect me severely bad when I do the sugar thing. That is my goal too, to stay away from as much processed sugar and processed foods as possible for this next year. Completely agree on the chomping on fruits and veggies. I just really hate the winter because all my favorite sweet fruit is summer fruit. Cherries, strawberries, all the berries, Apricots etc. I bought some grapefruits for the mornings so that is how I will be starting my day today. Thank you again everyone for all your support. I really do appreciate it!!!

    I totally agree. My goal for 2014 is to eat much cleaner. I'm trying to eliminate/reduce sugar from my diet and I'm not a big sugar person.....but there is way to much hidden in our foods. For me unprocessed whole foods do make me feel better and is the way to go!GOOD BLOG....thanks for sharing!

    Yup sugar spiking really is a pain. When you feel a craving coming on, chomp on some raw fruit or veggie because that will push your sugar levels up in a natural way. Try finely shredded cabbage and apple or a cups worth of coleslaw with raisins....they all work fantastically. If you still feel like a craving, walk somewhere to distract yourself.

    I feel the same way when I go off plan. I know that I don't have to stay away from my favorites forever. But until I have been able to maintain my weight for a period of time, they will have to be avoided. Each day is a challenge to stay on track, but if you start the day with your food and exercise already planned, you have a better chance for success. Stay strong. You will do it. emoticon

    Not to mention, if you are diabetic or pre-diabetic, high blood sugars can affect insulin production etc. and having higher sugars also makes it harder to lose weight

    I agree with you. With all that you mentioned, I also get migraines if I eat too much sugar. Took me a while to figure that out......Must have been the cloudy brain!!
