I had an incredible weekend with my girlfriend. I got to see her beautiful new home and we spent three days PACKED with shopping for furniture, picking out wall colors, talking with various contractors on things that need to be complete prior to their move in date.
We ate at some GREAT places and I was able to make GREAT choices, so easy to eat healthy if you look for it. BUT there is this little cupcake shop called SAS Cupcakes. We eyeballed them one evening and thought we'd have to come back before the weekend was over to pick some up for the family...yeah right!? :)
We came back Saturday night and I indulged in one called an Oreo Cupcake. Basically chocolate cupcake with this to-die-for frosting that is swirled with oreos...O-M-G!!!
I ate it. Felt completely OKAY with eating it. Not like I eat that stuff all the time. Actually I've completely eliminated ALL refined sugars from my diet.
But you know what happened to me? It completely awakened this sleeping monster inside of me. Seriously. All of a sudden the rest of the weekend and even today I've been CRAVING sweets, sugar, crap.
This is something that I've completely had ZERO desire for. My body was seriously never craving that stuff. I eat a bit of it and WHAM...it's like crack I tell ya. Another thing is my energy is drained. Now yes, I know a lot of it is attributed to our long hours, strange place to sleep, out of my element and normal eating schedule, etc. BUT I know that part of it is most definitely attributed to the sugar.
I brought three home for the family and I've managed to eat bites (large bites) of each of theirs and it's only prolonging the detox process and getting this DRUG out of my system.
YUCK. I most definitely like the way I feel when I'm eating my normal way then any 5 minutes of sugar coma I put myself in while eating that stuff. The baggage it brings is just not worth it!
What kind of experience have YOU had eating sugar, etc. after not eating it? Similar experience?
