And then, I drove home alone after mid-night. All I wanted to sugar sugar sugar. All I thought about was all that food I didn't eat. Instead of feeling empowered, I felt week. I stopped at a drug store and I bought myself chocolate, candy and ice cream. I got home and I ate it. All of it.
I basically passed out from a sugar crash / carb coma and woke up the next morning devastated. I has been so strong and so dedicated to this project and I screwed it all up in one swoop. Not only did I screw it up, but I screwed it up BIG. I could have bought some fruit or something but no, I went all out with true junk which is my trigger food.
On Sunday morning I knew I had two choices, I could throw in the towel or I could brush off the screw up and recommit right that very moment. I chose the second option. I made myself some eggs and headed to the gym to burn off that sugar. The scale of course went up but happily that last few days I have been back to eggs and the scale is moving back down again.
So there you have it. I wanted to be honest with every part of this experiment. Sigh. I am now thinking about extending the experiment until July 31st which would make it 24 days day to make up for the bad day. Sorry I let some of you down.
