I am really struggling with a sugar attack. I did great over thanksgiving and maybe it was because I was tired or not excercising (hey, theres a thought!) but I was weak.Sugar and me, well we go way back.
Sugar started sneaking in, whispering in my ear, calling and calling and calling until I gave in. Not just once. Many times. Mini packs of M&M's, cookies, pumpkin bread, chocolate covered pretzels.It has to stop and nobody hit me hard enough in the mouth to knock my sweet tooth out so I guess it is up to me.
Well, today was the day. I have gone all day sugar free. NOT ONE BIT has gone in my mouth. I know it will take quite a few more days of this to quit the cravings (and boy, are they intense) but it is not the way I want to go. It is standing in the way of my 219 that I am trying really hard to get to so it has to stop.
So that is where I am. One day at a time. NO excess sugar.
Back to walking (Stitchy got the ok as long as she doesnt chase any bunnies!) and we are starting slow. Only about 1 mile today and we will work back up. It felt good to eat well and walk today. Really good.
And eating sugar constantly, being exhausted, not walking, (you know, like my OLD life) sucks and I dont like it. It makes me realize how I am not missing anything by being like that. So good. No turning back.
Suck it, sugar! You dont own me.
