Not going so well. lol
The sugar Detox.. I'm not trying to eat apparent sugar. Baked Goods, Candy, Etc. but I'm still eating my chocolate cheerios and my chocolate rice cakes, and that kinda counts as sugar. lol I'm feeling kinda guilty, like I'm cheating... even though this is my mindful eating week.
I watched a Documentary last night called "Hungry For Change" It's about the dangers of Sugar and processed food. The Guy who wrote the Clean eating book was on there talking about what carbs and things like corn syrup do in your body.. and how to detox from those things.
There was some woman on there that said that if you give your kids things with sugar in them, then you might as well be injecting them with Herion, because it's the same thing.
They are Odviously more hardcore than I am. lol I don't think of sugar like Herion exactly. I don't think it's a good thing, And I do think it makes you fat (duh) but I think moderation is good as well. I'm not detoxing so I can never have sugar again. The idea of this whole process is that I'll crave these things less if I can go off them. Just like Pop. I quit drinking pop a month ago.. (on the 3rd was a whole month) and I don't even crave it anymore. . The thought of drinking one doesn't appeal to me.. I don't have any in the house to drink them if I wanted to anyway. lol
Miranda still gets too much sugar, Jake, thankfully has never been that into sugar to begin with, he does like a candy bar every once in awhile, but he could careless about baked goods (cookies, cake, pie, etc) and levi is still too young and has to listen to what I say. lol Miranda, Ugh. She just has so many Senory issues and anxiety with food. She's sooooo difficult when it comes to food. Always has been. this is something I imagined she would outgrow when she was 4.. then she didn't.. so maybe 5.. nope.. it just kept going.. and here we are. I hope someday she'll outgrow it. lol
Anyway, it's a work in progress. I treated myself to icecream last night.. As a (gulp) reward... I know!! BAD BAD BAD.. Do not use food as a reward! I swear it's deeply engrained. I'm trying. lol
As for the no spend.. That.. That has gone much worse. I'm actually thinking of dropping it this month and doing it next month. and then I think I'll do a no spend week.. At a time. lol so far I've gotten a 150ish dollar vacumm and we got pizza last night because I was out of milk and everything I wanted to make meant I had to have it.. that and I thought I took out pork cops, and it was a pork roast. Nothing I could do with that when I had 15m to make something. lol hate it when that happens.
So I had dave run out and get the pizza while I made myself a salad and a boca burger... then I decided to have a small piece of the pizza. lol
Yesterday wasn't my best eating day, but I did go to my kickboxing class and just dance 4 for 25 minutes, so around 1000 calories according to SP, I'm not sure I believe it, but awesome. lol I'm not sore today though, so I'm kinda bummed out. like nothing worked. It's possible I'm used to it?
I'm going to find a kickboxing video on ondemand or maybe on here to do today.
Until next time!
