So last night, after I had posted about how 'good' I had been and giving myself congratulatory pats - my brother-in-law came by with some board games and to chill with Remi and I for the evening.
(Ella was already asleep.)
As he unpacked his bag, something caught my eye - it was a big bag of Oreo's! I almost pointed a finger at him and yelled "JUDAS!" but I knew that probably wouln't help the situation.
Now, brotherInLaw has a huge sugar tooth, just like me. He's always got chocolate stashed somewhere, and refuses to stop eating so much processed crap because he was blessed with an above-average metabolism and does hardcore physical labour for his work. So no weight issues = no diet change.
Anyway, I told myself I wasn't going to have any. But then, somewhere between my shot of Malibu and losing at "Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards; Duel at Mt. Skullzfyre" (look it up, it's a hilarious fun game) I lost my resolve and downed not one, but 5 (to 7..) Oreos.
Now I could blame it on several things, and I could point out that my resistance to chocolate was at a monthly low *cough* but in the end I made that decision.
And I regretted it immediately.
I felt so sick, I thought I was going to throw up. I actually felt dizzy and shaky, it was just such a sugar rush after having cut it cold turkey that my body seemed to go into some sort of sugar shock!
The only bright side of this whole ordeal was that it has convinced me that this crap really does make you feel horrible.
That the feeling I was having is a normal reaction to putting that much junk into my body.
It really takes the desire to sugar binge, I'll tell ya what!
So today I did my best, we had a family get together and there were bags of chips and buns, and pops. And I avoided all of it!
I actually made my extended family try my Lemon Quinoa Salad (which is to die for) and most of them really liked it.
Anyway, that's just my short little update for today!
