Do you ever get mad at yourself for doing something you shouldn't?
Yesterday we attended a picnic with friends from church. The weather couldn't have been nicer. Nice breeze and high seventy temps. Friends who have a fantastic back yard of four acres filled with flower gardens, ponds, and fresh vegetable plots were the perfect hosts! We had a fantastic time.
So, what did I do wrong?
I ate a piece of cake and a homemade ice cream sandwich (ice cream between two large M&M cookies). I should have avoided the treats NOT because I am trying to lose weight, but because I am battling high blood sugar. When I eat too many foods on the high glycemic index, then my blood sugar gets high and then...drops. The drop causes me to have bouts of "personal summers" or what some women think of as hot flashes. Mine are not due to a change in hormonal levels, but the fluctuating blood sugar. I need to maintain levels in the normal range.
Too bad this won't imprint on my brain like abstaining from food which causes a bout of stomach upset! I really need to work on having a message trigger my brain to shout STOP! when I forget the after affects of eating such yummy treats!
Hope you all had a beautiful weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
