I love my sugar. Every night I usually reward myself with a sweet treat, nothing big, maybe two cookies or a mini bar of chocolate or a bit of cream in my coffee.
Two weeks ago purely by chance I ended up two early nights in a row so missed out on my nightly treat and decided what the heck - I might as well see if I could last the week. Then if I had I would reward myself at the weekend.
Well I did it and I had a lovely bowl of icecream on the saturday night which tasted even nicer than I could ever describe. You really do appreciate treats more when you don't have them every day
The following week I did the same but kinda overdid the treats at the weekend so much so that this week I've been feeling a bit sick, the only thing I can put it down to is the sugar. I tried running on Saturday night after having a bar of chocolate that afternoon and I was so sluggish and heavy. And *whispers* the chocolate didn't taste that great anyway
This week I'm now at Wednesday with no sugar and feeling great, I never believed cutting out one thing that I only had in restricted amounts could make such a difference to how I feel. This week I have been able to get up out of bed at 6am and not feel tired which has NEVER happened before, I'm running better and to be totally honest I don't miss the sugar at all.
I have a treat planned for after my dinner on Saturday night. A glass of wine and a muffin and I am really looking forward to it but that will be enough and will be a reward for all the work I'm putting in now.
And my dentist will be pleased too
So if you are a sugar fiend like me give it a go, you might surprise yourself
