mamaX4's Journal, 05 September 2007

What a ridiculous pattern. I have been getting so little sleep that when I get hungry, absolutely nothing without sugar will do. Now, I mean that I still eat the usual stuff, all the veggies and lean meat, seafood, etc... but I'm not remotely satiated, no matter how much I eat. At that point, do you just eat the d*&% sugar, or do you eat mega portions of the "right" stuff that add up to way more calories and fat? My biggest "sweet" is an organic frosted mini-wheat cereal. I could eat about 6 of their prescribed portions at a time; there's not a huge amount of sugar in each serving, but when you add them together, it's no wonder I'm expanding. Also fighting the battle of the bloat this week.

Really, really, REALLY need sleep. I think if I can get some rest, my bod won't crave as much crap to keep it going during the day. Unfortunately, it's out of my control for the time being, so all I can do is try to fight the good fight with food.

Happy days, all... zzzzzzzzzzzzz

I hate to say it...but try to take 2 tylenol PM's to get the much needed sleep. Also, I think that a small amt of sugar is better than too much healthy food. If it makes you happy to have one reallllly sweet dessert, have the sweet dessert. Just try not to go crazy.

Hear Hear on the tylenol PM! It really works...as far as the sugar goes I find the more I eat (sugar that is ) the more I want! Don't be to hard on yourself just start new and try again..:-)
