Hello my sparkies!
What a week this has been! Wednesday began my sugar detox and I have completed day 5 with no sugar. I feel great and while there have been times when I felt like eating some sugary deliciousness, I didnt. Not even 1 bite.
That makes me very happy and very proud of myself.
It makes me remember that I am stronger than I think I am (if you haven"t caught any of ITSMATT's blogs, he is very good at reminding us of that).
I also remember that when I DECIDE something, I am pretty good at DOING it.
I was getting back to a place where I wanted what I wanted. I didnt feel strong enough to use the tools I had (such as distraction, substitution and plain old just saying no to my inner brat). That was a slow integration into uphill lines instead of downhill lines graphing my weight loss. It was a slow fit comfortably into my size 20's instead of them being too big. It was a slow, foggy walk.
Well, I let myself forget alot of stuff (see my blog from last wednesday) but I REMEMBER now and I am building on that every day.
I tease about being a super hero but I really did earn my cape this week.
I think I just needed to stop allowing myself the "treats" that I thought I earned, not just during the holidays but in the whole last year. Fruits and veggies are my old/new best friends.
Good enough really isn't. It is not good enough to get me smaller, healthier or stronger and that is what I want. That is why I am here. My goals have not changed so my behavior needs to get in line with that.
Im telling ya, kids, I am feeling great! And if I can make the switch, so can you.
