My name is Vicki and I am an A.D.D.I.C.T
WHAT HUH! Yep it was a shock to me as well...here's how I figured it out....
So you know I'm on this new "clean eating" kick (well mostly clean - balance people BALANCE)
and if you didn't, well you can read about it HERE.
Anyhooo...when my sister and her fiancee dropped by I decided I could manage baking them some Totally Chocolate Choc Chip Cookies (nothing clean about those babies).
So before I go ahead and tell you what I did....I have to justify myself. I had not eaten anything sugary for the entire week....an ENTIRE WEEK. No chocolate, no sugary drinks, no sugar in my food, no ice-cream.....ZIP... NADA ... NOTHING!
So I take the first batch of cookies out of the oven and put them on a tray to cool. They smelled like heaven. I had used wholemeal flour to make them (instead of white) and stevia instead of sugar, and thought I would have a little crumb just to make sure they tasted right....(I mean I can't be serving rubbish to my guests can I??)
That one crumb hit my tongue and triggered something in my brain, and that was it...
something took over me and I ate half the batch in less than 5 minutes......my sister was like
And here I am sitting on the sofa with guilty crumbs on my lips, and a big sugar drunk smile on my face! (quickley followed by "OMGoodness" what is wrong with me??)
I AM A SUGAR JUNKIE!
Okay, so maybe I already knew this. I mean the signs were there.
That's one of the reasons I embarked on this healthier lifestyle plan, because I wanted to break the hold that sugar has over me. Maybe I thought it was be as simple as going "cold turkey", but it would seem NO.
It would appear I have a larger problem than I first thought if a tray of biscuits is not safe in my presence, not to mention the block of chocolate that is hiding in the back of the pantry!
So now what? Do I try to continue with cold turkey and start over, or do I accept that I'm a junkie and allow myself to have small doses.....but then, am I going to be a raging sugaraholic and get "sugar drunk" each time I have some.
Oh what to do, what to do??
So now I'm turning to all of you, any suggestions?? Any of you also struggling with this??
