Yesterday I fixed myself a big bowl of oatmeal for breakfast. I put walnuts, cinnamon, blueberries and peaches in it with a tablespoon of cream. That is how I always make my oatmeal. Oh I alternate the fruits by using bananas and apple chunks but otherwise I pretty much stick with that.
For lunch I had some triscuits with hummus. For dinner I had a half of a homemade chicken enchilada. I was so busy with everything I somehow knew I wasn't eating right but didn't stop to change the course of things. I ran my kids to a night class and a girlfriend wanted to go out and visit while they were there. So we went to a little coffee bistro type place where I had decaf coffee and a carrot cake muffin with raisins. The muffin is called a muffin top and that's exactly what it looks like-just like they cut the top off of a muffin that had overflowed its cup. So the muffin was not that big as you can see. But it was just big enough for the sugar to do its number on me.
If I would have had my protein up where it belonged for the day that sugar wouldn't have bothered me. Well I didn't and I paid the piper. I awoke with a migraine this morning. I know that will happen so why do I always fall into this trap? It's called discipline; I must discipline myself to stay away from sugar or at the very least combine my carbs with a protein. I have the head knowledge now I need to kick myself into action and apply it.
