Days 14, 15, 16 - CRAP!

Well, today is day 16 and basically I ate crap.   On top of that, I feel like crap.  I can't figure out why I keep jinxing myself.  Saturday and Sunday went well and I felt terrific.  What would make me not want to feel like that all the time?  I really don't know.

Putting the right foods into my body makes me feel better.  I'm disgusted with myself but what's new.  Since my eating journey is about truth and awareness I guess I'm still on track.  I told the truth and I am totally aware of why I feel badly today.  Ice cream and potato chips were not my plan for lunch.  I have to admit they did taste good while I was chewing but I would not feel so sluggish right now if I'd had a crunchy apple, some baked chicken, and a fresh green salad.  That was my original plan.

I have an 11-year-old King Charles Spaniel who was just diagnosed as being diabetic.  I didn't even know she was sick until her glucose level came back at 400. In fact, I just assumed she was sleeping a lot because she's getting old.  She's been on insulin for three days now and she's like a puppy again.  I don't want to become diabetic and I know that I can prevent it by the way I live my life. Sluggish is not a word that fits into my vocabulary.  Help me out here!


  1. Its like a roller coaster - isn't it?
    My mom says the words are "Out of Control"
    We need to know who can help too.


  2. When we act within our intention we are participating in a process that is far greater than we may ever be able to fully appreciate.

    Our muscles grow big and strong from working them consitantly until failure. Natural processes then repair these old version of our musculature making new and stronger muscles.

    When we feel as if we have failed we are really experiencing a type of rebirth of stronger improved versions of ourselves.

    CONGRATULATIONS on your latest failure! The new determined version of you will be more perfect and beutiful than your previous incarnation.


  3. See day 4 for some helpful hint on how to stay on track!

    Readers please share some of your best coping mechanisms for beating inappropriate nutritional choices!


  4. My family had a cat who thrived on insulin for years, wishing your dog the same.

    I do the 90/10 rule. I eat healthy and keep a food journal, and allow myself treats but in small portions. Then I do not feel like guilty.

    I had one "bad" day in seven weeks, and I was crabby as a result of it. Today I woke up with gratitude and shook of my uncharacteristic crabbiness and started a brand new morning.

    Happy Autumn to you and yours.

  5. I assume 90/10 refers to healthy food and junk food. How do you distribute your 10% is it eat 9 things good then 1 not so gr8 choice? or 9 days good 1 day of junk? 1 bad day in 7 weeks sounds like a gr8 7 weeks to me! tell us more rose. Thanks for responding.
