I can't tell you how many times I wanted to just give in and eat something sweet, but then I knew I would have to post in on my blog. That thought has helped me several times in the last four days to pull it together and walk on. It makes a huge difference to know I have people who understand rooting for me to succeed!
Today I've had a little more energy, but I'm still pretty tired. Good news is that I seem to be sleeping much better than before. High hopes for that taking care of the tired thing in the long run!
My cravings are finally getting better! I went to the grocery store and had to walk through the bakery, and at first the smells were overwhelming. But then I thought "No, I'm GOING to do this!" and held my breath as I raced through. I know that may seem a little extreme, but I didn't want to risk giving in. It is only day 4!
I also feel more even emotionally, if that makes sense. Like before I was wired tired because of the sugar, and now I'm just tired and calmer. We'll see if that continues. Could just me a good day.
Still no burning lately, so that's great! My muscles are pretty tight and achy right now, but I've been trying to do more stretching too. Sometimes things hurt more when you try to get them moving until they get a little healthier.
My bad news today was my cholesterol check. I've making little changes for quite a while now to try and lower my cholesterol and it didn't budge. So much for our little changes. Guess they were too little. I do not want meds!
Total cholesterol - 287
HDL - 49
LDL - 191
Trig - 234
This sugar thing is my biggest vice, so after I do this for awhile I'm going to introduce another step in this journey. Yeah day 4!!!
