This last week has been rough to say the least. Between a cold, hurting my toe, and the monthly visitor, my diet went completely out the window. I was in so much pain that I used food to “try” and make myself feel better. I was craving sweets like nobodies business!! And working out and even normal moving around was put on a hold. I think that did me in more than the food. If I had been able to move around and get some housework and other things done then I for one, wouldn’t have eaten so much and two if even I had eaten that bad at least I was working some of it off.
It is funny how life sure gets in the way and puts things on hold when you don’t really have time for it. It is also funny that I still turn to sweets when I am in pain or stressed. Why is that?? I know I have a sweet tooth, but had been doing so much better at curbing it. But a good chunk of chocolate or some cookies were all I wanted!!
I have got to learn to control my cravings when things like this come up and also find better alternatives to the calorie and sugar laden snacks. Thankfully I didn’t gain any weight, but I also didn’t lose any which was a bit frustrating. The next couple of weeks are going to be pretty crazy with closing on our new house, moving and family time. I hope that I can keep my focus on food. I need to go get some healthy snacks made and ready to go for whenever I have the cravings and am short on time.
If you have any good recipes that satisfy the sweet tooth while still being good for you, I would love for you to share!!
