Argh – too much sugar!
A friend of my own has a party planning business and was exhibiting at an expo today. I was roped in to helping out, which was fine… until I came across all the sugary
goodness goods on display at the expo. And the samples of them. macarons, cupcakes, biscuits, lollies, cake pops, more cupcakes, boutique sodas…
I gave. Not too horrendously, but I do now realise just how much I can’t do sugary treats. 1 mini macaron, 1 mini cupcake and a choc coated oreo. Even though it was only three ‘small’ items, I don’t want to think about the horrible empty calories that was. What I am thinking about is the fact that I really don’t feel particularly well – part due to having had a cold on and off for the last three weeks and having been on my feet all day, but a big chunk of it is undeniably the baddies that I have consumed today.So. What to take of this day and where to from here?
- It was a VERY good idea to take my lunch with me – popped into Coles and picked up a ready made salad on the way; Couscous, Spinach, Sundried Tomato & Feta. I’m not saying that this is the best thing that I could have eaten for lunch, but significantly better than a few more cupcakes!
- Get over it. I know that I can’t eat poorly every day and just go with a ‘get over it’ attitude, but in this case, get over it.
- Lots of water to flush out the system!
Life’s too short and if I am really going to make a sustainable life change, I can’t be too hard on myself. Tomorrow is a new day and a new opportunity to do it better.
