Struggling but feeling better after last blog
Monday, May 18, 2015
First off, thank you to everyone who posted their support on my last blog. Writing it out and reading the encouragement def helped me.
I don't know why I was freaking out about giving up junk food. I, of all people, know that I don't have to cut out junk food I just have to cut it down and be sure to count the calories. The thought of not eating it still freaks me out but I'm trying to remind myself I can still have it but in small portions. Thank you to those that reminded me of that fact! :)
Part of me would really like to cut sugar completely out of my diet, do like a sugar detox, but I've never done that before and not sure I can. I keep reading the articles here on cutting sugar out and how it takes three to four weeks before the cravings subside but how much better you feel and how much better food taste.
There are days when all I've had to eat, basically, is sugar. I can't even just say junk food because it's just been candy bars, chips, pop and ice cream. Literally that is all I will have eaten on a lot of days. Because of that I don't even know if I could do without sugar. But I also think it would be good for my body and my taste buds. idk it's something to think about.
There are new food things I want to try, well new to me, but I always chicken out. haha I've never cooked with fresh herbs and in fact rarely even have used dried spices, and have never tried garden fresh veggies...actually have only even tried a few veggies and those are all canned or frozen. well basically..I eat lettuce, carrots and celery and that's about it for veggies. Some more things to add to my new things to try in the future list. :)
I logged my calories for the day and did a 30 minute work out.
Even more importantly I trusted two of my close friends and told them about my freaking out about changing my eating. Between that, blogging about it and the support from them and the awesome people here I am feeling better about it.
I did some thinking the other night, after posting my blog, about what I miss from my old site and one of the things I miss most is the journals. You could post and keep it going page after page about what ever you wanted. I think maybe if I could get comfortable with "blogging" and consider if just like the journal, just with individual pages, that might help me. Even if I don't say anything important, just talking about my day, aka babbling, seems to help me.
And that's enough babbling for one night as I need to go do some homework. :)
