There's a Crazy Gremlin Living Inside Me!

Saturday, July 11, 2009

Someone posted about their PMS day in a group and since I am right there it got me to thinking about those dreaded days!! Sometimes it is like there is a crazy eat everything in site gremlin living inside my stomach!!! Often I can fight the temptations, and other times nothing I do helps. The cravings don't stop.. I guess, not so much a craving really, but like eat a whole dang house feeling!! What the heck!? I'm not a big eater. and actually have always eaten off of smaller plates etc. Yet sometimes around that time, gosh, seems like everything is calling out to me. Yesterday I must admit was a horrible day for me as far as eating goes. It's odd because you get those days a little before where you just don't feel like eating at all. Then you get that one or two days where all you want to do is eat! Sheesh, hate hormones! So yes yesterday was one of those days. It was also a busy run around day. One of those days where your grabbing meals on the run. My daughter and I had a sub for lunch. ( I had turkey and then loaded it with veggies), then hubby ordered dinner in as he knew I would not want to cook when I got home. I had fish and chips for dinner. He did get the thinner batter fish option for me, and I did not eat many fries, (but still fattening). Later on a had a bowl of Maple Walnut ice cream! Goodness!! Talk about blowing it! I felt very guilty and still do. Around 8pm got on my bike and went for an hour and a half bike ride with my daughter. Around 11pm, my friend and I went for a 2 hour walk! Lol, not sure that made up for any of the crap I ate through the day, but it quieted the Gremlin! Jeepers!! PMS Days,,, Ugg!!

    Hi, Ditto, Ditto, Ditto...fighting it today myself! I feel like I have ADHD! I'm trying to stay busy with anything to stay away from the kitchen, but I keep finding myself standing in front of the refrigerator...I'm fighting the temptations...really isn't anything but healthy stuff in there anyway. Back to trimming photos for my latest project. Thanks for the smiles, I can so relate. Have a great weekend!

    I saw some good choices in your eating yesterday.

    1. Lot's of veggies on your hoggie
    2. It was turkey
    3. Lighter batter on the fish
    4. did not eat many chips

    You did get lot's of exercise.

    Praise for those good choices.

    Next time try to deep breathe. Make better choices so that the Gremlin "Guilt" doesn't manifest.

    Sounds like you had an emotional reaction to a day you felt was already out of control before you began it. Your actions followed your judgement of the day.

    Give up the guilt. Breathe deeply.
