Stress = Sugar Cravings
Feeling Overwhelmed = Sugar Cravings
Yes, Saturday and Sunday I was both very stressed and was extremely overwhelmed.
My simple controlled chocolate fix was not working for me.
I craved cookies–no not chocolate chip cookies, but Almond Windmilll Cookies.
What the heck was wrong with me. I never crave that. Ok, it was available. I bought them for my husband who had just had surgery. These are his favorites and I was trying to spoil him.
ONE POTATO, TWO
2 cookies. 2 more cookies. I had to have more. I wasn’t satisfied and I wasn’t full. 3 more cookies, 2 more cookies. I think that was all, but I could have had even more because I was focusing on feeding an insatiable hunger. A blind, undefined need,
Finally, my husband said, “You better stop or aren’t you on your diet now?”
DON’T TELL ME WHAT TO DO
First, smoke billowed from the top of my head. Then I thought, “Why can’t I have a few cookies?” Then, “Why does he have to tell me what to do?” “I can eat whatever I want.”
“No, I am still on my diet, ” I grumbled. ” I am not perfect, I ate something that was not on my diet–the world will not fall apart,” I argued a little too loudly.
THEN, GUILT KICKED IN.
“Why did I do that?”
“I’m going to look like a failure in front of my Jenny counselor. She will think I am not serious.’
“But I am serious. I have been perfect all week. I carried food in a cooler to my husband’s surgery just so I can be on target.”
What do I do? I will faithfully eat all my Jenny portions for dinner and afterwards.
Do I weigh in? Yes, I have to weigh in. What will my counselor do? Yell at me? Maybe.
Hit me? No.
Give up on me? That I don’t know.
Let you know later.
P.S. I have a guardian angel. I lost two pounds!!!!!
My guardian angel may not be that good to me again, so I have to find a way to stop those cravings.
