Avoiding processed foods … Friday was a better day

Well, I want to confess. I’ve been “off-line” for a couple of days for a couple of reasons. One is that I have been very busy with meetings, rehearsals, and make-up performances for our play due to the those really bad snow days earlier in the month.

The other reason is that on Wednesday, I made a pretty crappy eating choice and decided that it would be ok, to eat 3 cookies that I knew most likely were made with real butter and hidden nasty ingredients like High Fructose Corn Syrup, Palm Oil and natural flavors and I don’t know what else, because I didn’t have an ingredient list to check before I ate them … just because they were dipped in “dark chocolate.”

Well, that was a really bad mistake. And, of course, I couldn’t have just one either … as soon as I ate one, I craved another and then another! Non-healthy sugar is that bad for me! and then I felt sick to my stomach for about 36 hours and so lethargic …  it took me until today to really feel “normal” again.

So, when I posted the article the other day about “how bad can one meal be?” Well, it’s true, one bad meal, or eating too many sweets, can really mess us up. I’m just glad to be back on track. And I wanted you to know. Yes, I am not perfect. Yes, it’s one day at time. Yes, I am back on track, and I don’t think I will be doing something like that in the too distant future. It’s just not worth it!

Well, I’m off to the theater to do another performance of It’s a Wonderful Life.

Cheers, Karen
