Tame the Sugar Cravings Challenge
Thursday, November 19, 2015
I've had a rough several days. It's mostly been emotional stuff and during the course of that, I forgot about this sugar cravings challenge that I signed up for. It's a good thing that the first week is mostly about observing the eating habits and times that the sugar cravings hit.
I had some really bad sugar cravings over the past several days. Of course, I had bought sugary foods to satisfy that. My resolve was low and I didn't care. I just wanted to eat the emotions and my "go to" is something sugary. Let's just say that I completely overate on those for a couple of days. I am diabetic and even though my blood sugar levels are usually good, eating sugar especially in the amount that I did is not good. It sure didn't help my feelings. It left my drained and just unable to fight the good fight against depression.
I am the kind of person who can really tell a difference when I eat my protein and healthy foods. It helps me in my mind and body. I do not understand why I continue to feed it foods that make me feel bad. What am I gaining from it, especially if it ends up making me feel worse? I believe that awareness is the first step with anything and I am certainly at that point.
