Musings From A Musical Mind

Making A Healthy Choice

My husband and son are trying to corrupt me.  And after I was doing so well too.  Yesterday after working a job together they brought home – KRISPY KREME doughnuts!!  And they MADE me eat two glazed ones right in front of them.

I’m not happy about it.  In fact – I’m so NOT happy about it – that I had another one with my coffee for breakfast.

Three months ago I would have said NO WAY!!  You can’t tempt me with DOUGHNUTS!!

Greg and I began to eat right – no SUGAR and only whole foods.  We didn’t starve – far from it! Eating good things like fruits and veggies – lots of fish and chicken – sprouted wheat breads and butter, eggs and even bacon!  For snacks – raisins for Greg – nuts for me.  It was good – although no real weight loss – we just KNEW we were doing better with our choices – and a regular exercise routine felt right.

But then – Thanksgiving came.  And homemade pumpkin pie.  You know you can’t make just one pie.

And then the slow decline to the Christmas holidays – food and EVERY wrong choice in front of us.  Greg has a sweet tooth – I love the salty things more – like chex mix, salted nuts, chips – you get the picture.  Gone were all our healthy choices – well not gone exactly – just pushed to the side in the fridge and pantry.

And then yesterday – those messengers of the DEVIL brought me DOUGHNUTS!!   Well I’m as shocked and surprised as you are.  They are victims themselves and should be pitied.

When our son-in-law was here the other day he said to me – ‘I thought you guys weren’t eating this stuff anymore?’   Yeah.  So did I.

So like everything else in my life up to now – I will have to make another hard decision – to say goodbye to the unhealthy choices – and then – STICK WITH IT – for good this time!

And I will – really soon.  Get those DOUGHNUTS away from me!

 

God Bless

  1. A few years ago I went on a no-sugar diet. That’s ALL I gave up. Sugar. I didn’t change anything else, not even the amount of exercise. I began to lose weight steadily! Over the period of about a year, I continued losing, probably about 20 pounds. I began introducing sugar back into my diet. Little by little, steadily, I gained back the weight. I keep trying to get myself back on the no-sugar diet. It works. The sweet tooth is an evil tooth. Ha! Blessings to you…

  2. ROFLOL, JoJo!!! Even though I’m not a fan of Krispy Kreme, I saw the glaze dribbling down your chin, too, Cindy. 🙂 I’m more like you, though. . . chips, nuts and anything I can crunch. I have to admit heaven comes together in a snack from my hometown of Philthydelphia, though. . . chocolate-covered pretzels! I know they have them in other places but they are everywhere in Philly!

    I have to readjust my choices back to pre-holiday time, too. I sloughed off BAD so know that you are NOT alone. Oh, and don’t send those despicable bringers of evil treats to my house! (But if you do, send them via the side door so nobody sees the transaction, K? bwahahahaha)

  3. That registered a 10 on my Poppycock Meter. I could see that smile on your sugary mouth from here! ROFL
