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.
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!
