I Won’t Make This Mistake Again

Sleep deprived and feeling the pressure of impending work deadlines, I did something I shouldn’t have done.

I drank coffee.

But, the story doesn’t end there. When I reached the bottom of my first cup, I grabbed a second. So, I felt a little wired. Not a big deal, right? It would pass.

Then my husband, kind man that he is, returned from the store bearing gifts. It was late afternoon, and I needed a lift to make it through a client phone meeting.

    Hope you’re feeling better. Sometimes the most uncomfortable lessons are the lessons best learned? Though, still wondering how the coffee fits in … the donut makes perfect sense.

    It’s amazing how a lot of people just get used to eating crappy food. And also how people get used to just feeling bad all the time, but don’t question their diet.

    Whenever I fall down on my healthy diet and find myself drinking coffee or eating poorly it’s a gigantic reminder that IT’S TERRIBLE! hahaha and then I am so grateful for real food that nourishes me and my cravings for crap go away. Until the next time…

    Anna — I occasionally have a glass of coffee. I think my mistake was in having two. It made me feel jittery and wired, essentially prepping my system to respond badly to the doughnut.

    Julie — Yeah, I think that’s a great point to make.

    Michelle — What’s really funny is that I had absolutely no cravings for coffee or sweets yesterday. I didn’t really want them, but had them because they were in front of me. And I figured, what could it hurt? Maybe it might even help give me the tiniest energy boost to make it through the rest of the afternoon. But I didn’t ENJOY eating them — in fact the doughnut was disgusting.

    Elizabeth — Yes, I have a not-so-subtle sense of humor.

    Aw man, i hope you feel better. I really understand where you’re coming from…I had some standard SAD chocolate chip cookies (Ima just have to make my own lol) a few weeks back…my system was WRECKED for that entire day! That happens anytime I feel brave enough to eat something with refined sugar, flour or both.

    So guess what hubby got for me for our engagement anny last week? A chocolate cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory. Its my favorite, but not great for my system *eye roll* Ive been eating it very carefully, making sure to drink it with raw milk and not eat a whole slice of cake at a time, but even then, i still have issues.

    But yea, my digestive system does NOT tolerate foolishness and I get quite a kick in the gut when i ignore that lol.
