Sugar and Forgiveness
Monday, May 16, 2011
(I posted this on my Facebook page Buster Fitness, but thought I would share my night here too. I posted an interesting link to NES an eating disorder that is being recognized.)
More specifically, chocolate! I had my first rough night in weeks. I came downstairs after everyone was in bed and wanted sugar. I talked myself out of it, but didn't go back upstairs. I started to clean up some dishes in the sink and then wham, I saw the Hershey kisses in a bowl from my son's Easter basket. I've learned to enjoy sweets in moderation, but not at 12 a.m., but it happens, I'm human I wanted chocolate. I am doing photos for my web page in about 5 weeks so I am trying to be spot on with my nutrition which for the time being doesn't include 12 a.m. candy.
So yes, I had a handful of kisses. I don't feel too terrible about it, but I do wish I had been able to get past the sugar cravings. Sugar has continued to be the most difficult thing for me to give up or at least eat in moderation. There are many theories about sugar cravings. I'll post a good link.
I'm past the chocolate issue. I forgive myself. I've come to realize that hating myself after going off plan doesn't solve anything and usually makes things worse. Staying on your food plan is key for your health and weight loss. How we feel emotionally during the day ultimately plays a part in our food choices. If you get sidetracked, take a deep breath and get back on the right track. This happens to ALL of us. Don't let unplanned eating get you down. Today is a new day and you're in charge!
