I've Got To Stop The Stupid!
Thursday, April 27, 2017
There are so many things that I keep doing and yet I know they are bad for me. How damn can one be. For example, my love affair with sweets. Sweets are bad for me on so many levels. For one, I have terrible teeth. And I make them worse by eating sweets. I confess to people that I eat sweets when I'm stressed, as if the sweets take away the stress.
Two weeks ago I broke my tooth chewing candy. Two weeks before that I broke another tooth, at least then I was not eating sweets. So now I have to spend lots of money having the teeth fixed. Today I had one of the broken teeth pulled out. It wasn't too bad, but I felt stupid. I promised my denstist I'm done with the candy because I can't afford to lose any more teeth.
On a more positive note, my dentist took my blood pressure before pulling out my tooth and he commented that I have the blood pressure of a teenager. (He is not the first person in the medical profession to tell me that). He asked if I exercise and I told him yes - I even ran 6 miles before going to see him today. He confessed to struggling with his weight and I told him about Spark People. Hope he will find it as helpful as I have over the years.
But seriously guys, I've got to stop the stupid.
