An observation

So I talked about how I’m eating all healthily and not eating sugar and blah blah blah. Well, yesterday I was tempted by the evil that is known as the M&M jar. M&M’s are my downfall. They wouldn’t be so bad if I could just stop at one or two. But no. Once I start eating them I literally can’t stop. This blog post is pretty much an accurate description of me when I start eating M&Ms. this quote in particular:

My need for sugar would become so massive, that it would collapse in upon itself and create a vacuum into which even more sugar would be drawn until all the world had been stripped of sweetness.

So. anyway. I had a little sugarfest yesterday that started with M&Ms and ended with the cutest little japanese cupcakes ever.

None of it even tasted that good. And eventually I started feeling terrible. I was reminded of the book that I read in storytime the day before, The Very Hungry Caterpillar and how he ate through all of this yummy food on Saturday but ended up with a stomach ache.

I woke up this morning and seriously felt terrible. I still kind of do. I almost talked myself out of running. I’ve been on this really great streak for a couple of months and to have it all just collapse because of a sugar hangover? How sad!

it was actually kind of enlightening to really be able to step back and see how my actions produced this result in the way I feel. I’ve never really noticed it before. So next time I will most definitely think twice before sticking my hand, mindlessly, into the m&m jar.

Lesson learned.

  1. This was my favorite book when I was little! I was living next to the library and there I found this book. I could not really read, but my grandma would read it to me. 🙂

    Don’t feel bad about the sugar attack! The worst thing that could happen is that you don’t lose as much weight as you would have lost without eating the sweets. But you will still lose weight!

    I lost about 50 pounds with weight watchers some time ago and I would regularly allow myself a “high calory day” in order to stimulate my metabolism. I was very afraid that the diet would give me the yo-yo-effect.
    Maybe you body just needed this.
    So just go on and don’t look back! 🙂
    Don’t feel bad!!


  2. I hear if you eat “One Green Leaf”, you will feel much better the next day! 😉
