Hanging My Head… :(

From the moment I opened my eyes this morning, I was tempted.  ALL DAY LONG I had cravings!  It was rough.

Have you had days like this?

I got through it until about three o’clock.  That’s when my car drove straight into a gas station.  No, I was not in need of petro.  I was in “need” of chocolate.  I fell WAY off the proverbial wagon.  My purchase included Hostess cupcakes and a Three Musketeer’s bar, both of which I promptly ate the minute I got home.  My mind went blank.  I used none of the tools that I have to fight off cravings — I just gave in.

What did I get out of this plunge into a vat of sugar?  Absolutely nothing, unless you count an incredible thirst that couldn’t be quenched, a horrific case of cotton mouth, and a tongue that felt like it was 4 inches thick.  It was disgusting.  I felt disgusting.  Of course, my blood sugar rose, and I went into a carb coma.  Sleeping the day away, is not my idea of fun, so I fought it.  I set my alarm for 30 minutes.  When it screamed at me, I got up.  No remorse, I told my frustrated self.  Hop back on the wagon and move along with the day. 

It’s now almost 10 p.m.  My mouth is still dry and I’m drinking water like a nomad in a desert. I’ve reviewed my day and realized that the number one thing that I did wrong was skip lunch.  I had a list of errands that would choke a horse, and I paid more attention to the list than I did to myself.

Take care of #1.  As Type 2 diabetics, we know that’s what has to happen to be successful at winning each battle. I didn’t do it.

Tomorrow’s another day.  I WILL do the right thing — use my tools, eat ON TIME and properly!  It will be a good day.

  1. You can do it! Don’t worry. One day at a time, one MEAL at a time. Now you know what triggered it, so you can prevent it next time. 🙂

  2. Yes, you can do it, I too caved into a craving this week and felt so remorseful after the fact, heck I felt it with each bite but did not stop chewing, not even a pause, and then the nap to follow such indulgence, in the long run I did walk an extra 30 minutes despite the high heat and humidity here in central Florida but I knew I had to do something. So a new day starts and I am once again at day one.
