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…

Ugh! No more cupcakes!

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.
