Taking a day off of running Day 4 Sugarfree

Thursday, March 07, 2013

I am tired today and I have a sore throat. Ick. I walk/jogged yesterday and I didn't even want to. But, I put on a hat (should have had gloves) and walked until I felt like jogging and then jogged quite a bit longer than I thought I could. So, that's good. I tried to do the Couchto5K thing, but I can't do it. Stopping and starting like that and having to look at a a watch of some kind is a pain. I know there are ways to download Couch to 5K programs, but I couldn't find one that I could stand. The ones I had were either impossible for me to download or they were talking too much (which is great for some people), but I like my music. So, my own version of Couch to 5K is walk and then run/jog when you feel like and then stop when you feel like it. My biggest downfall in the past, is getting too extreme. I get burned out or hurt myself and then I have to quit. I am getting gentler with myself though.

Still no sugar, but I am craving a sugary lemonade. The boys wanted chick fila (we get grilled chicken), and I really wanted even a sugar-free lemonade. But, I have heard that even the sugar free versions of sugar keep the taste of sugar in your system some how. It makes it hard to kick the habit. I certainly can't do! that stuff gives me killer headaches. The lemonade at chick fila has splenda and so does RC Diet (whatever it's called), but that gives me a stomach ache. So, I guess that's good for me.

Still having to squeeze into my pants. Muffin-top mama over here emoticon. I'll figure it out. emoticon

Oh, and by the way, I know that I said Day 2 yesterday and Day 4 today. I technicallly started no sugar on Monday, but I had a small piece of keylime pie that we had left over. So, Monday shouldn't have counted, but I have decided to count any day that I ultimately try...see? I am being gentler with myself. Finally.

    You are doing well. I haven't had the nerve to quit sugar yet. But, I am curbing back and finding things are becoming too sweet. Maybe someday!

    Good luck.

    I will agree that you should count every day even with a small slip. You'll get through this. I don't suppose a bit of lemon in some water would curb that urge or lemonade? That's how I always drink my water at restaurants-lemon but no sweetener. Keep up the good work!
