The Perfect Storm

For the first time since starting this new way of life, I had a very, very stressful day.  Last night, before I went to bed, I noticed that I was getting a larger-than-normal amount of traffic over at the No Credit Needed site.  Turns out, Lifehacker has linked to one of my posts!  Yay.  But, then I began to stress that the additional traffic might pull my site off line (and I was worried about ways to take advantage of the extra traffic).  I was a little hungry, and I went to bed later than usual.  I woke up this morning with a terrible sore throat, and banging headache.  I went outside, and my tire on my car is flat.  Not sagging, but F L A T.  So, I spent the better part of the day at the auto shop, getting some new tires.  I only had a few minutes for breakfast, so I grabbed some fruit and a water, but by lunch time, I was STARVING.  (Poor planning, NCN).  So, my body reverted to it’s old ways, screaming “Fast Food, Fast Food!!!”.  I literally had to use every ounce of willpower that I possess to get in my car, drive home, and fix a healthy lunch.  My body, even now, is demanding junk food.  Seriously, I can FEEL the pull towards the refrigerator.  If you’ve never struggled with your weight, you have no idea how difficult it can be to deal with this ‘addiction’.  But, I’m staying STRONG!  Lots and lots of water, fruit, some protein.  I shall overcome, baby!  I want to thank all of you for your comments and for subscribing to the new site.  You rock!

  1. I hear ya. When I get TOO hungry it’s all I can do to keep myself from eating EVERYTHING. I think my bottoming out blood sugar puts my body into panic mode and it thinks it is literally starving.
    Stay strong!

  2. Fantastic! Doesn’t it feel great when you battle through a binge impulse sucessfully?? It’s tough in the middle of it, but when you are on the far side looking back, you feel so victorious.

  3. Had you thought to bring a PowerBar-like lunch substitute with you for when things like that happen. I know it’s not as natural as fruit and water, but it’s better than the junk food temptation.
