I am Jen, Jen I am

my journey towards happy and healthy healing…inside and out!

sugar-induced belly ache

I will make no excuses. I ate terribly. I ate a lot of sweets and junkie foods.

I can’t even tell you I stopped after gaining a bit this week.

Nope, I ate even worse saturday and sunday.

I kept saying it IS my birthday weekend.


Ben & Jerry’s

Cake Pops (made by my awesome daughter)

Very little fruit and veg.

I realize, I have no control when it comes to certain foods.  Sweets are a huge problem for me. I want to whatever sweet it is, until it is all gone. ALL GONE.  I seem to be ok until I have had that first _________ {fill in the blank with cookies, brownies, cake pops, or whatever IS is}  Once I have that first one, I want more. For example, there were oreos last week. The husband brought them home; he thought I would like them. Well, I DID like them…so much, that every time I walked into the kitchen, I helped myself to 2 or 3.

I may need to detox from sugar.

Monday was a better food day, but I did not track and log my food. I have no idea how many points I consumed. I do know, I had way less sugary junk. In fact, my principal brought in a birthday cake for me during our staff meeting and I sliced everyone a piece but I didn’t have any myself.  I didn’t want it and I didn’t eat it.

I need a break from sugar!!

It may even be time for drastic restrictions from the sweet junk I love so much!

While I think this picture is hilarious, I think I have a real problem with sweet stuff. I just cannot seem to say no. I also don’t seem to be able to handle sweets in moderation. It is like that potato chip commercial, “I bet ya can’t eat just one!”


So, it is time to not eat that first one!

  1. I’m that way with salty snacks – an open bag of Doritos near me is VERY bad. I think I’ve read that sugar has the same effect – the more you eat the more you crave it. Recognizing the trigger is a great step thought.

    That cartoon is freaking AWESOME.
