Flexing still feels freaky for me. Not sure what it is..but it just feels off to me, unnatural. But when Friday rolls around, and I have a somewhat decent picture of me doing so—I’ll post it!
There’s another “flex” I can’t pull off well. No flexible dieting for me!
I realize a lot of you can likely have “fun” with food—eat treats every now and then and chances are you get back on track quickly!
But for me? It takes days to recover from a sugar frenzy and stop the bleeding—that is, the sugar consumption!
Once I get that sweet fix, I want more right away, the next day and probably the next.
It’s not just a weakness in me. Okay, well that’s a huge part of it. But there are some stats to back me up here.
Did you know:
*Sugar is like a drug.
*Studies show it’s as addictive as cocaine.
*It creates a short-term high & spark of energy
*We enjoy the dopamine release sugar brings.
*Long-term health effects like obesity & diabetes are major complications from eating the sweet stuff.
My best bet on avoiding the white stuff? Not eating it in the first place. Which reminds me--’ve been able to avoid it for a while--at least a couple months. But there’s something looming in my future: A chocolate mousse cake.
It’s another birthday party---and I’m making the cake.
Stay tuned to find out if I eat any! I’ll give you a hint---I likely won’t make it past the beaters and bowl!
