I think the Universe is trying to tell me something.
As I'm shoving my 2nd donut (the first donuts I've had in 2 months) in my mouth like a boss, I come across an article on Yahoo titled:
5 Surprising Signs You're a Sugar Addict
Yup, Mr Universe, bless his 'all-knowing' little heart, can suck it.
How does he always know?!?!?! *said in my whiny 2 year old voice*
I know I talked about giving up sugar this week, but things got a little hairy, and I decided to put it off.
But you know what I truly realized today? After reading:
Do you find comfort in dessert or reach for pasta or pizza when you're feeling down?.............Eating sugar releases opioids and dopamine into the body. Both of these
chemicals basically send pleasure signals to your brain and help your
body block pain. Sounds similar to the effects of narcotics, right?
Consuming sugar makes you feel happy, which is the reason why we reach
for it again and again.
That.......pretty much hit home.
For some 'strange' reason I'm really down today (being a sarcastic ass on the 'strange' part, because with all the shit I put up with on Sunday and Monday, it's no wonder I'm having a depression meltdown.) And what do I do to make myself feel better? Head straight to the gas station and mow down glazed deliciousness. Shitballs.
Obviously I need to break this cycle of me being Sugar's bitch.
I need to make Sugar MY bitch!
How I do that.....I do not know.
But I'm going to figure it out.
I definitely don't want that ho-bag Sugar to be my boss. Sugar can suck it too. And I definitely don't want Dillyn to have the same struggles as me.
Well, today's already shot. And I have a mammoth jar of candy corn on my desk that I won't be able to resist because I'm a weak bastard, so I'm going to start on Monday.
Monday it is.
No more sugar.
No more feeding my feelings.
Anyone else want to go on a sugar detox with me?!
I know, I know, classic timing with Halloween right around the corner. I'm stellar that way. Don't hate.
I'm with you!!! Seriously I've tried sugar detox several times and it's a bitch the first several days, but it gets easier and I certainly feel more in control. My problem is thinking I can do it in moderation.ReplyDelete
So yes. Let's conquer this...no more sugar as of Monday! :)
I'm in, princess! Well, actually I've BEEN in, but I'll keep rockin' with you! I have sugar probably once or twice a week now. I don't eat wheat (ie: pasta, rice, flour) much anymore, so I'm good there. And I haven't been snacking on the Kit Kats for weeks. (Damn it.) I do feel a lot better though! Best advice: Cold turkey. It's a bitch and a half, but it's the best way in my mind. Every time I was "slowing down", I'd find a way to magically have a Milky Way. Because I'm a self saboteur!ReplyDelete
I heart you. Big quishy lovey slightly inappropriate (probably) hugs---because you ROCK! (And because I'm weird. And so are you. And it's fine.)
By the way, your baby gift is still sitting on my desk. WTF is wrong with me?! It won't fit her for awhile, but I should probably ship this out, no? Jesus Christ.... lol Sorry!
I'm sooooo down! Monday it is :) lets do this!ReplyDelete
Fear just struck my heart. Monday is sooooo close! But I do, I do, I do need to get it out of my system. And I have 20 pounds of baby weight I have been carrying for oh, eighteen months now.ReplyDelete
I DID lose ten pounds a few months ago by eating clean - had a headache and shakes for days while I detoxed. Hence the fear. But okay - I'm in.
I will even blog about it. Expect cursing.
