Shhhh… You Don't Know Me

Apre Holiday Jabber (Confession)

Filed under: Daily Jabber — Shhhh @ 6:01 pm

I said… and then failed… that I was starting back on track last Monday. And yet, I watched in wonder as my hand repeatedly lifted the remaining Turtles into my mouth.

The holidays kicked my appetite like something I haven’t seen in a long long time. I’m HONGRY.

The sugar withdrawls are a BITCH, too. I have to buckle down and get serious about it, and avoid all processed crap for three days, and I’ll have it licked. Yesterday was truly day one, since I didn’t snarf a huge bowl of buttery popcorn after dinner, like I did the two nights before.

I need to remind myself that hunger is NOT an emergency.

I know it’s bad when I’m afraid to step on the scale. I want at least two weeks of being back in control before I do that.

Although, I’m back into some good habits, too. Like drinking my water again. Not working, I fell out of routine (always a bad scene for me) and wasn’t getting ANY water in. I’m back up to two litres a day, minimum.


Also, I’m eating oatmeal for breakfast, which is sure to clean me out. I knew it was bad in ma guts when on Monday, after eating oatmeal in the morning, and a huge amount of veggies during the day, I had six session with the toilet. SIX. I should have weighed myself in the morning and the next morning. I’m sure I crapped out at least ten pounds.

Veggies are both my friend AND my enemy these days. LOL



  1. Sugar about killed me over the holidays. I am so glad to give it up! I feel 5 bazillion times better. 🙂

    Just move on. It will soon be gone.

  3. Holy crap, that’s a lot of, er, crap!

    Let’s not even discuss sugar — I am way addicted & really need to curb myself.
