Because I ROCK, today was day 2 of my NO SUGAR detox. I have eaten so much sugar over the last few weeks, it is ridiculous!
So on Wednesday, I went without sugar. No cookies, no candy, no breads, no cakes, no cake pops... NOTHING. I was very proud of myself yesterday and ate fruit instead. Plain, delicious fruit. (see my blog from yesterday called Somehow, I forgot).
Today was a bigger challenge. I went to my Grandmother (in laws) house. She has a huge sweet tooth and I always bring her cookies or bring her cake or something.
I brought her Safeway soup and we had that and french bread for lunch. I also brought her a square of chocolatey chocolate cake. She does NOT take NO for an answer and she always makes sure I eat at least one cookie or something else I brought her.
Today, I ate an apple on the way over, ate the soup and bread and then dessert time. I cut her a square and then I sat down with the fruit salad I had purchased at Safeway.
She said, "you are having fruit? No cake?" I told her "I LOVE cake but Grandma, I have been eating much to much so I am going to not have any sugar for a week".
She said A WEEK??? Lol. I told her when I first set out to lose weight, I didnt eat extra sugar for weeks and weeks. I also told her I wanted to lose the few pounds I had gained over the holidays plus, I needed to still lose some more.
She dropped it and that was the end of that. I was so glad she did. I can only take so much pressure!
I am super proud of myself for not eating anything with extra sugar for the last 2 days. 2 days may not seem like much to some people, but to me, it is launching me on to success.
I am remembering that small steps lead to big gains.
