The window to temptation
This is a dieters nightmare, it's the syn of sins, the point breaker, a willpower wobbly moment. The window of temptation. It's that moment when you have bought a treat for another member of your family and happily leave them on. the side in the kitchen and you clock sight of them. The beautiful contents, siting there quite innocently, saying eat me!!! You know you want to!!!
I'm not picking on any supermarket at all as from a point of sale side it's the magic window that draws that same temptation in for the public to buy the product so hats off to marketing because it does the job. To those people, well ok me then, who process very little willpower at all this is just cruel. It happened to me the other day, that's why I'm writing about it. I am hoping in some cathartic way that I can get it all out of my system and never repeat this act again. Two lonely jam doughnuts just sat there looking at me, I kept passing them saying to myself 'no I can't eat you because you contain gluten and you are not part of my slimming world diet'. Like that would help, it should because I really cannot tolerate gluten very well and I really want to lose some more weight.
I went off and drank pints of water because when your about to binge it is not proper hunger but the slight chance that you maybe thirsty, that's what they say isn't it? I have to admit that most of the time this does work but not at this particular moment, I was already in stage two, after setting a visual I was thinking, well one won't hurt. Yes it will hurt Sue from the Brew, it will make your tummy ache, give you massive wind and probably stop you from being able to poo! Sorry too much information. No even this wasn't enough, I was thinking of the major health impact, but I didn't think very hard. Honestly I have spent more energy and more time thinking about what bleach to use in the toilet to extinguish the build up of limescale, there you go, I think more about the toilet bowl and it's insides before my own insides.
I could break a bit off and eat it but a bite turned into half and then half turned into the whole lot!! Do you know what? It was gorgeous! About a million syns but I didn't care for a moment. The sugar rush was making me feel goooood! I was in sugar heaven, if there was a festival from the swinging sixties based on people just eating loads of sugar it would be called 'Sugarstock'. Love, Peace and Sugar and this would have been the line up:
Def Leppard singing 'Pour Some Sugar on Me'
Robbie Williams with 'Candy'
The Rolling Stones 'Brown Sugar'
The Rubettes 'Sugar Baby Love'
The Searchers 'Sweets for my Sweet'
I came down from sugar land and felt a little disgusted and not very good about myself, only a little bit though. Life is way too short sometimes, you only pass by this world once, unless you believe in reincarnation that is but sometimes the cake just needs to be eaten. I totally blame the little window on the packet but then we blame everything else except ourselves. A day or so later my insides have survived although I haven't felt great but that serves me right and don't feel sorry for me as I don't deserve it. Pardon? You weren't going to anyway? Quite right.
I give in way to easy to temptation, it's just one of many flaws I have but hey we all have them and eat the blooming cake if it makes you feel happy but if you're like me probably taking the gluten free option may be the safer bet. A brew and cake, it's just the best ever! And with that advice I will leave you go forth and eat doughnuts and cake. The moral of the story - there were two doughnuts left and I only ate one!!!
Thanks for reading, will be back tomorrow for more cake, NO I mean I will be back for A Verse for Thursday......bye for now.
