a slippery slope that eating sweets can be if you haven't done it in awhile.
Hmm...yes, Lindsey, it was you. You see, Lindsey is trying to keep away from M&Ms...so she has experience with this.
I guess what I'm trying to say here is that after I ate that chocolate covered cream filled bismark yesterday...something happened.
Like... my iron-clad, death grip guard that I've had up for the past four weeks...experienced a little shake-up...if you will. A little chink in the armour.
Apparently resisting all those bites... all those four weeks, was a wise choice in slamming the door shut at the possibility of not being able to stop once I re-introduced my mouth to sweets.
Ok...I'll tell it.
I ate the equivalent of a half of a chocolate covered, pink and white sprinkled Valentine doughnut, that was left over from the big trip to the bakery yesterday. I even ate about 1/2 a sheet of my son's graham crackers.
It could be my imagination...but my stomach feels pooch-i-er. Really it does!
I noticed that even though the doughnut was a little dry...because it was day old. In fact, it was a little crunchy...it still tasted wonderful. My ultra-sensitive taste buds were picking up on the flaky, fried crust thing going on meshed with the softer doughnut inside. The chocolate frosting and sprinkles were sooo flavorful.
Then, unfortunately, I noticed that my salad was not as tasty and enjoyable. I noticed that I felt very strong cravings for that half of a doughnut. At first, I cut off a sliver... then, I just brushed up the sprinkles...then I put the doughnut box up high. My usual fail-safe tactic.
Nope. Didn't work...An hour later I pulled it down, and began to savor each an every bite.
Yes, Lord help me!
This is a picture of what is on the menu for next Sunday's treat. But after today...I mean, I haven't really eaten clean all week to deserve it.
One of the reason's this diet of mine is working so well, is that I am eating no sugar and no white flour. Those two ingredients combined...inhibit fat loss. So...even though, this technically is not a lot of calories...it's what it's doing to my body that is the bad thing.
Our bodies are soo sensitive that when I stopped eating white flour and sugar, I dropped four pounds in three days.
Hmmm...yes, I know what you're thinking..."what should I do?"
Well, while I'm figuring that one out, the above candy comes from a local store that makes their own chocolates and ice cream. This is a picture of a chocolate covered, pecan turtle, and an oreo cookie dipped in chocolate. This stuff IS delicious. I've never had the chocolate dipped oreo, but I have had the pecan turtle.
Well, other than that, Sunshine Mama had a good day! I think once the last of the doughnuts are eaten, my resistance will increase.
I'm still working on figuring out how to get this two minute video clip of me eating the chocolate covered cream filled bismark uploaded for your viewing pleasure.
Well, I hope everyone's Monday is going well.
