Pour Some Sugar on Me

Yeah, I just quoted Def Leppard.

I’m so over blogging about my new healthier way of eating. Good grief! I’m so over eating healthier – period. I still am eating well, though, with a few exceptions.

Someone in my house – my husband Kelly – bought Krispy Kreme donuts. They were here. Mistakes were made. I’ve blown it with a few other things. Almost always, it’s a sugar issue. Like, who ever overeats broccoli? I just threw up in my mouth a little at the thought.

I just want sugary goodness. I need cookies – not want, I need them. Oh yeah, I had four the other day. See, there have been exceptions. Just the fact that I wrote the word cookies just now only reminded me that I have homemade cookies in the kitchen, sitting on the counter in a glass container. Why do I do that to myself? I bake cookies because I love the guy who has a box of still uneaten Krispy Kreme donuts in the kitchen.

Because I haven’t had as much sugar, I find I’m eating the alternative – bread. Since simple carbs turn into nothing but sugar in your bloodstream, no wonder I’ve traded in one vice for another. Technically, I’m still getting my sugar fix. Yesterday, I had four pieces of bread over the course of the day. I haven’t done that in over two years at least. That’s not healthier by any means.

I sure was hoping that by the end of the month I could finish out this series on a more positive note. I wanted to be able to tell you how awesome I am and that I’ve rocked this thing. In truth, I’m just mentally exhausted over the struggle.

Overall, I am doing better in every area, but there hasn’t been one week yet that I didn’t eat things I was trying to avoid. Maybe I never will, but I do know this, if I give up all together, I won’t maintain my health. So I keep plugging away at it.

Lord willing and the creeks don’t rise, I’ll be back next January and begin again. Until then, I’ll do the best I can each day with one goal in mind: just to stay out of the cookies.

Quick update: After writing this, yes, I did go and get into the cookies. Stupid cookies!
