Yes, I had a Carb Binge. A Big carb binge! At 1:30 this morning. Why is it that I am so weak in the middle of the night when I can't sleep? It seems like I can't stop because I am in a fog. It is awful.
When I went to bed I knew that I was really craving carbs but I was trying to hold out. Then I couldn't sleep and it all went downhill from there. I think the low carb thing is causing my sleep problems. It's either that or pms or a combination of the two.
So when I got up at 1:30am I first grabbed a Hershey bar. You know you are desperate when you eat your 1 year old little girls candy bar from her aunt and uncle. Then I moved on to finish off a bag of potato chips and then the rest of the cheetos. So sad!
Well, I guess this low carb thing just isn't for me. I actually enjoyed it for a few days. I was able to eat so much more meat and cheese instead of bread and I really liked that. But then yesterday I got cranky and started to have awful craving and feeling that need to binge.
I discovered that it is never good to deprive yourself of something. Moderation is the key. It has worked for me for the past year and a half. I guess it wasn't the best idea for me to try to change things up and go so low carb.
I think in the future that I will try to go lower carb and higher protein. That part I liked but I will still eat some carbs because I like them and so does my body. :) If depriving myself is going to cause binges I don't think it is a good thing for me to do.
I do have to say that I give all of the credit in the world to anyone who can handle this low carb way of life. It's hard! Really, really hard.
Now it is time for me to move back to my normal way of eating. I am really looking forward to eating some bread tomorrow.
How did all of you do with your low carb eating this week?
