My sugar addiction has started to kick in again and I've been weak. I'm back to having 18% cream in my 3 coffees a day and *shock* I just noticed that the bastards added dextrose to the cream. Bugger.
Last week both of us were off and we decided to go see The Hunger Games. Fearing I would pig out on movie theatre nachos and cheese (my fave snack when there...no pop!), we went to the grocery store to get "healthy" snack to sneak into the theatre. These healthy snacks morphed into cookies and brownie squares. Fack. We snuck a bottle of water each in, hidden in my purse.
This week my skin feels like it's CRAWLING it's SO itchy. Last night I had to pee at 2:30am and while I was doing so I was ripping away at my legs and it felt soooo good and yet so gawd-awful at the same time. When I went back to bed the skin was all red and throbbing with heat. Ugh. This insane rash (which always seems to start in an arm pit for some reason) is making its way across my body and my taste buds better fuck off with the constant whining for sweet things!!
My mild rosacea has returned as well.
I've also noticed that there is a lot more mucous in my nasal passages, to the point where I have to snork it back so I don't sound like I'm sick with a cold. It's real pleasant to have to do this near co-workers while I'm on the phone with a client! (Thankfully I have a mute button, which has served me well and prevented my firing on a daily basis.)
So, today I will start the changes to reverse this once again. Coffee is bad when you have a yeast overgrowth problem, so I will reduce my intake (I hate caffeine withdrawal headaches!!!), will gradually revert back to using almond milk in coffee when I do have one, and will not partake in the very-sweet-looking cake we bought as dessert for tonight's dinner (his mummy's coming over). I will hear about it from her, but I will ignore it.
Guess I won't be having bacon with our usual Sunday breakfast, either. Grrr.
Oh wait, I do have something positive to report -- I weighed myself this morning, and after all this sugar-binging, the scale still reads 145.3. Yay!!
