Addictions: 1 hour at a time??
Friday, December 11, 2009
I was reading about addictions to food online and the best advice came from an unknown poster and she stated to take it 1 hour at a time. I was like that is it. For me I know I am an emotional eater and in the industry as well as the office that I work in my emotions kick in and I immediately want to stuff my face with chocolate.
I can eat the healthy stuff but it will not do any good. I will literally trip, my body gets fidgety and my mind will not focus until I have chocolate. I know it sounds crazy but I am addicted to chocolate and foods. I have tried the Atkins and Zone diets and that's why I fail because I cannot go through the detoxing.
I am determined to get through this day without eating the "BAD" foods because I can barely walk on my knee from the inflammation being so painful. Chocolate is at the top of the list for the foods that aggravate the inflammation and I will not go to the vending machine. I am saying it again...I will not go to the vending machine.
I am determined to not have to walk with a cane, I will be able to put my son in the bath tub, I will walk the stairs.
