Let them eat cake! – Cheat Days

I was very torn when I started myfitnesspal. I see pictures of what people eat and then see their “cheat day” food one day a week. That day looks like an eruption of fat, sugar and carbs on a plate. Every rule goes out the window and their diet takes a backseat for the day.

Taking a day every week to treat yourself is a good idea because you don’t want to suddenly binge eat or give into all your cravings- totally crash and burning your fitness and health goals. This method of having a cheat meal is a way to control yourself.

What should a diabetic do? You can have a little cheat. I have a little soda or a little cake once in awhile. Completely saying NO I CAN’T EAT THAT I’M DIABETIC is utter bullshit. It’s all about how much you plan to eat. Our cheat day cannot be an entire day but one sugary sweet with a meal.

Having given up sitting and eating a bag of skittles or drinking a can of pop has lead me to needing a cheat once and awhile to not binge. I have binge ate then felt awful about it leading me to eat more and so on. It can be a vicious cycle. Soon, your blood sugar and\or diet will be completely destroyed. Starting back up on a diet is harder than simply having a little cheat. It turns into tomorrow I will start, then in a week, then in a month. . . then maybe it never happens.

Take it from this diabetic, eat at least a little snack with a meal every so often and you will be successful in reaching your goals.

What fashion trend do you want to come back into style?

I really like fashion from the 1800s which has only somewhat come back in style in Japanese fashion and alternative fashion. So I guess it has come back…. I find it beautiful, elegant and dressy. There are so many forms of 1800s-esqe fashion in Japan I don’t know all the names anymore. I do know terms such as steampunk, Victorian goth, gothic lolita, minori and light lolita.

What is this about anyway?

Image result for wtfI noticed my English is suffering. You see, I moved to Norway from the US and have to learn Bokmål. All I hear most of the day is some form of  Norwegian dialect. Soon, I’ll be learning Bokmål and Ålesund dialect.

Whew. That is a lot of bullshit to learn. Better find a way to keep up my English skills. Better write some bullshit nearly everyday using a prompt from 642 Things to Write About by the San Francisco Writers’ Grotto or random prompts I find online. Neato.

I’ll write the best I can and you English speakers can come along for the ride. Eventually I will write in both Bokmål and English.
