Goes my belly cause I am HUNGRY!!!!! This whole "keeping track of my food" thing (see two previous posts) is not so awesome. The shame alone has forced me to stop mindlessly munching, but that's what was keeping me full. Now I really have to actually look to real, square meals. Huh? Pooey.
So here is my farewell to my old favs, my buddies, my sugar highs:
What can say?
We've had a good run,
But today is the day.
For now we must part,
And only meet in the brief.
You once had my (gummy) heart,
But kinda ruined my teef.
All the way to back when my mom told me that
Eating donuts would "give me hips" and make me fat,
I turned to you, with the boast of "fat-free"
I make you my meals while ignoring your calories.
Jelly beans, Twizzlers, gummy cherries and ju-ju bees
Dots, mike-n-ikes, good and plenty, and some tootsies
MnM's, Red Vines, junoir mints and Milk Duds,
Have all bound to my gut and my ass with a thud.
But now is the time for me to grow up
To start eating real, or risk blowing up
See, I want to do this Ironman and I need better food
To help make me strong and stablize my mood (no more sugar highs!)
More good carbs, protien and fat
To help repair my muscles so I don't fall flat.
So farwell my good friend, and all your feel-good delight
And when Arizona time comes, I'll run strong through the night.
(Cue single tear drop)
