Yesterday was a ridiculous day for me. If you read my food blog, you know that I ate more sugar in one day than I normally do in a week or two. Ah. It was a sugar catastrophe. I ate chocolate bunnies and brownies and maple syrup and I think I sent my blood sugar levels spiking around all day. Definitely not healthy and I feel it. I don’t feel very good post sugargate. I didn’t feel very good on the day, which is part of why I let it happen. Sugar makes me feel better. And I know that.
And then today, the brownies were still around. My brother ate a few but half of them were still there.
Here is what I know about myself:
I can’t keep a plate of brownies around. I will eat them.
It’s pretty much that simple. Tell me have no willpower, judge me, whatever. That’s just how it is. My willpower is not putting myself in that situation often and then getting rid of them when I need to. And I did. The rest are in the trash, because honestly no one needs any more brownies. We aren’t supposed to be eating a lot of chocolate seeing as how we all have the kidney stones.
So, there we go. Brownies are gone. Desserts this week? I’m skipping them. I’ll eat bananas or some other fruit instead. Let the sugar get out of my system. Clear my head. *sigh* I certainly feel like an addict quitting for the 17867th time right now.
But beyond the brownie stuff… this week is going to ROCK. Reasons for this week’s upcoming awesomeness:
- The ebook is coming tomorrow!! Since I’m such a perfectionist I’ve been working up until the last minute on things making it better and better. It’s freaking awesome y’all.
- More free time (kind of!). Now that the ebook is done I can focus more on stuff I like to do like reading your blogs and actually commenting! Hurray!
- I made a commitment to myself to workout at least once a day every day this week. I want to get my money’s worth from my gym membership while I still have it! And working out five days last week was nice. This week will be even better with daily workouts!
So there you have it.
My week is going to be great. Is yours? What do you have planned?
