The PMS cravings have really started. I have definitely been overeating. Not sugar though! Pathetic to overeat things like sweet potato, avocado, cheese, diet powder and vegetarian pasta! But that’s me – Hanna, your anonymous food addict.
I will quit this behaviour too though. I just couldn’t do it all in one go – sugar plus other bad food habits, I mean.
It’s been 2 weeks since I had sugar now though. I lost a little bit of weight, not much. Over at Impossible Journey, Maureen mentioned that she has had difficulties controlling in-between meals snacking. This is despite her being a fully recovered addict and the author of a book on quitting sugar. So it can happen to the best of us. I was a very strict and disciplined eater when I was younger. I just need to kick the physical addiction and get back in the mindset I had in my 20s.
Even though I’m still very much in the PMS week, I’ll try to get through the day today without overeating. It just makes me feel bloated.
The thing that triggered this recent food abuse was two things. Economic – my economic situation was resolved. I had been a bit concerned about that earlier. Secondly, I started reading some Paleo diet blogs, particularly Petra8Paleo. Petra has some great recipies on her blog. The paleo diet appeals to me but I haven’t committed to switching yet. I don’t eat a lot of processed pre-cooked food anyway.
Well, the sweet potato chips look quite irresistible, don’t they? I made this dish twice *blush*.
It’s time to reign in this abuse too now. I will eat 3 meals of food or diet powder. Nothing more.
