Sheesh. It's hard, ya know? Ok, here is the deal. I went away for a couple days for my oldest sons summer baseball team. They were playing a couple hours away & we needed to stay at a hotel. No biggie. Alot of times I stress myself out thinking about where will we eat that I will be able to get filled up on good food & not the stuff I can't or won't eat. That just happens so much. Anyway, the trip was going well. I took lots of fruit, different kinds so I wouldn't get bored. I had a couple "Kind" bars & some other nuts. LOTS of water & knew I could splurge with coffee because I brought my soy creamer along. Yeah, I was doing really well UNTIL........ we got back to our hotel room after a few hours out & those nice, thoughtful people brought a "Thank You" plate up. Oh my. It had fruit, juice, a big cookie, & 2 candy bars. Now, the amount of times that I actually CRAVE a candy bar? Not many to count AT ALL. I succumbed to this craving. I even texted my good friend AFTER I did it and confessed. I felt horrible (physically mostly). My body just isn't used to having to digest that stuff. I got the point loud & clear.
So, did I beat myself up over it? Well, probably for about 10 minutes or so. Then I got real. I had a craving & it was handed to me on a platter. Literally. Then for dinner & went out & had a great salad & some yummy fish. I also continued drinking LOTS and LOTS of water.
I felt better in the morning & was happy I had a new day to start over again.
It happens. We are just human & crave things. Especially when we have already had them & know what they taste like, etc. Totally normal.
So, what are some things you just can't do without? I know I have asked this question before but I would love to hear from you!!
Be Blessed & Healthy!!!
