Arrowroot anyone?

Wake up feeling fantastic today, have a friend over for coffee and our kids are playing.  Fix them a nice healthy snack and then give them an arrowroot.  With my son's serious allergies, there are very little real "treats" he can have.  Arrowroots are one of them!  So, my friend leaves and I have a client arrive.  I personal train her, then come up, put my baby down for his nap and clean up.  There are 2 arrowroots left in the bag.  I do what I would normally do if there was 1 or 2 cookies left- POP THEM IN MY MOUTH!  AHHHHH .  I gobble them down so fast then it hits me that I'm not supposed to be eating those!!  This is my first real screw up!  I get high off the sugar and then run to the box to see what terrible things I have ingested!!! 

Are you ready??  I feel like such a bad girl!
wheat flour
glucose fructose
corn starch

Those are just a few items.  All of which I am trying to avoid.  I wonder what this will do (if anything)  I only had 2 I swear.  I won't lie- I almost dove into a new pack.  I was thinking "why not, I already messed up, might as well enjoy it"  But then I remember my loyal followers and the possibility of causing a flare and smartened up!!

Damn you sweet tasting, melt in your mouth, baby cookies.


  1. haha that is funny I probably would have dived into second pack...I almost did the same thing with candy here at the office...habit to just pop one in my mouth but stopped in time. Good for you for stay firm:)

  2. That's rough, Jen! I've accidentally cheated on my own program before. Sometimes the results are disastrous and sometimes I don't even notice. But good for you for not going ahead and eating more. I've done that too and it just guarantees a flare up of symptoms.

    Keep up the good work!
