Titles are tricky. I’m not always sir what to write, but this is what I came up with when I sat down for a creative writing session instead of an eating session just now. You see the “eat” in creative? I find it more suited for my sugar addiction management than actually eating. But I digress (not digest, which I would be doing if I were eating).
The distraction of writing is one of my keys to managing my sugar addiction. Case in point: I am writing this and not eating between meals. The not eating between meals is one of the sugar addiction management guidelines I follow (see Potatoes Not Prozac by K. DesMaisons, PhD).
Mysteriously, this morning, I was thinking of Sherlock Holmes, and then Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I was thinking of Sir Doyle because I looked up the line, “Elementary, my dear Watson” and found out that it wasn’t actually written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle but by film writers at a later date.
I couldn’t write a blog post this morning because I was on my way to a luncheon with friends. But I did scribble a few notes for later reference. My lunch appointment was quite nice. I was able to navigate my food choices and track them reasonably on the WW phone app. This afternoon, I considered eating the leftover sandwich that I had brought home with me. I thought I was hungry and reasoned in my head that it would be a nutritious afternoon snack. But I drank water instead. That’s another key to my sugar addiction management. If it’s not mealtime and I think I’m hungry, drink some water or herb tea. It worked.
Back to my thoughts while driving this morning. Sure Author Corn and Oil. That’s pretty close to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle when you say it aloud. I think I qualify as a Sure Author. I published a book with the title The I’m Possible Journey. It’s about my journey of learning to live with sugar addiction. I’ve been learning and living it for quite a few years. The Corn and Oil part of it might be a bit of a stretch until one considers my style of humor and my frequent mention of eating healthy oils. There’s a certain satisfaction associated with both: corny humor and healthy oils. I’d say they are also keys to my waist management.
So, Sherlock Holmes, what does this have to do with anything? Sure lock homes in on the mystery with a set of keys. What’s the rest of it?
Alimentary, my dear. What’s on (your plate)?
That, in a nut shell, or perhaps a nut case, is mystory solved.
What works for me (and may work for you) is writing my foods and moods. I pay attention to what I eat and how I feel.
In the past few months, I’ve not paid quite as much attention to these things and it has made a difference that I didn’t like. I started feeling locked out of feeling good. The keys were there, but I wasn’t using them effectively. A look at my book jogged my memory of what’s possible. I’m possible. And you are, too!
And now, it’s time for supper. I win!
