Danger, Will Robinson!

Happy Thanksgiving, friends. I really love Thanksgiving.  It’s my favorite time of the year. I’m a hibernator, a caver, a snuggler. Throw in some snow, good friends, family, and we’ve got a New England memory in the making. That aside, what I really want to talk about is all the delicious gluten and processed food I’ve been eating. Would someone please analyze me, quick?

TG-day I did pretty well. I didn’t succumb to any gluten until about stuffing time. Note though, that I attended the 9:30 a.m. Thanksgiving morning yoga class! Yes-siree-Bob, I did! Later, I shared some pie with my dear hub, I was proud.

Friday morning I was hitting the road with my boy to the Great White North for a hockey tournament. Rushing, the road trip started with a stop for bacon, egg and cheese sandwiches at the local market.They were,


Ahem, amen.

And for the rest of the weekend~
We lost all of our games. Ate pizza, popcorn, coffee cake, chlorine, orange Crush. Had a few break-aways, and made some new friends. Upon our return, met dad at a local favorite, and drank a beer (or two…).  Drank coffee all weekend, too. That’s a first in months.

I am astounded at how easily I can revert to my old ways. It is natural, comfortable.
I think tomorrow I will go back to the other.
Not a single adverse reaction the gluten, the sugar, the rest of it…nothing. Nothing but pleasure.

What the heck?

  1. It is amazing how quickly we can fall back into old habits. I sort of went food crazy Wed.-Sat. Today, I went back to my healthier way of eating and exercising. I felt fine until about an hour ago, and now I’m starving (even though I’ve had all of the calories that I need). It’ll probably take me all week to detox from the sugar I’ve had over the past few days. I’ll also have to adjust to not overeating. It’s so rough!

      [For some reason my previous comment did not go through properly… Must be gluten on the brain!]
      Good luck to you! Glad you are back on board. Today I’m feeling sluggish, unmotivated and barely fighting the cravings for sugar and carbs. It’s crazy how powerful sugar is on the brain. Just sitting it out knowing this too, shall pass.
