Falling off the balancing beam
Truly and deeply frustrated. Oh, I guess it's not that bad really. What, you make ask has me all in a tizzy? Well, this whole idea of "eating better." See I have done really well with my work-outs. I've been going to the Y or running around the neighborhood almost everyday. However, I can't seam to say no to the chocolate, or the cookies, or the tea. It doesn't really matter what it is-as long as it's not good for me I will want it. The most frustrating this is I can go with out it. I've done it for weeks at a time. No sweets, not bad carbs, only drinking water. When I do go with out these kind of foods for a week or so, I don't cheat. However when I go off the "diet" and try to stay in moderation I tend to break down. I will decide I can have a small slice of cake. But after having that, I decide that I can have one glass of sweet tea which turns into two. Before I know it, I am back to my old habits. Therefore my work-outs don't do me as much good, because I am just keeping even. ::SIGH:: Will somebody please tell me how to balance this thing out? The thought of never eating anything yummy again sounds terrible. However, I can't seam to "just have one" as the potato chip says. I wish I could learn to have a small something everyday. It just seams that once those taste buds get going, they won't let up. HELP!!
