#Atkins #NoCarb #Diet Day 19: I Cheated and it Felt SO Gooood……

If loving you is wrong, chocolate, I don’t wanna be right.

Oct. 23 was Day #11 of my insane, serotonin-sucking diet, so that means today must be Day #19. Two weeks in and I will admit, I cheated. I cheated and it felt soooo good. After two-and-a-half weeks of mood swings, fights with family and friends, loss of respect by some, loss of my debit card, lack of sleep and general insanity, I felt maybe the best thing to do for the sake of all those I love and hold dear, would be to eat a gosh darn piece of freakin’ chocolate for Pete’s sake! (Who is Pete? You’ve got me.)

One candy bar wasย not going to kill me. But maybe adding on a bag of Lay’s potato chips would. After my body has been carb-free for so long I sunk quickly into the drool-filled carb coma I have fallen into so many times before. You see, I am not just doing this no carb diet because I want to look like J Lo, I am doing it because my doctor said I have high glucose in my blood and if I don’t regulate it now with my diet I will have Type 2 diabetes within a couple of years. No thanks, doc. I quite like my taters and hops in moderation.

The only problem is that I have not been eating healthy at all. Substituting one or two vices for another is not the best compromise, but it has been what I’ve been doing and it’s going to stop now. Can’t embark upon a 50K race to finish a novel in one month for #NaNoWriMo being all strung out on Captain Morgan and cigarettes now can I? No. I need some brain food and I need to keep my wits about me.

So it’s back to my green kelp shakes that bring all the smarts to my bod, that’s right, they’re better than yours.

    I’m a sucker. I cant stop at one chocolate bar, so I have to keep them outta the house. If there not at home then I cant eat them. =)
