Since I have been working out, my sugar levels are out of control. Not high, but more like they nose dive with no warning, then I am dizzy, lethargic, and a bit cranky. Then I fall into my old habit of eat. And I don’t mean the healthy habit of grabbing something good for me, but the UN-healthy habit of cheep carbs.
- Friday Pizza.
- Saturday Pasta
- Sunday White rice.
If that was it, I probably wouldn’t have an issue, but it was that, PLUS I have found more sugar in my diet that I have to drop, and I have been over eating again! Let me say that again: I HAVE BEEN OVER EATING AGAIN!
Don’t get me wrong, I am not giving up by any means. This is an admission that I didn’t stay on my planned path. That I took the easy route to get food, and I took the easy route to get an endorphin fix. Yes, I know that over eating for me fires off endorphins that cause me to have a moment of fake pleasure, at the price of my health.
Note: This is why I am pro-cannabis. Your body should release a level of endorphins that help regulate healthy moods, and pain control. Even healthy neural control can be managed by proper cannabis control. Since I don’t take any cannabis, in any form, I don’t have this tool to help manage my mental/physical health.
I also don’t drink, but that is another discussion.
So what is the new plan? If I repeat my old plan, and fail again and again, then I am proving insanity.
Insanity is the repeating of failed policies, with the expectations that they will magically start working.
I have a few options in my mind:
- Don’t put myself in the position where I have to chose between food and satisfaction (Quality of life, not being full).
- Find the root cause and root it out, of what is causing my failure of be satisfied. (I believe that my lack of being full comes from an emotional emptiness.)
- Consider getting a Medical Marijuana Permit/Prescription
- Continue exploring other avenues.
FYI: Hypnosis fails to take on me. I have frustrated 3 doctors already, I don’t plan on trying number 4. My older brother is the same way.
On the good news side of things, I am still working out.
