Sugar withdrawal, grumpy grump bag!!!

Friday, May 24, 2013

I AM grumpy and I reckon it's my lack of sugar. But despite The Grumpies I feel great, it almost feels relieving to let go of sugar for now, to be able to say NO to all them sugary things, no exceptions.... okay, except honey, honey will be my only exception. I decided to not have sweets (lollies, gummy bears, jelly snakes and the like), chocolate (any kind, white, milk or dark), soda (I'm off soda for the last 23 days already, but it also means I will stop drinking a homemade elderflower syrup, which I mix with bubbly water and ends up tasting like lemonade... I will miss that a LOT), desserts, bikkies, cookies, and also, my newly found evening treat baileys.... sigh.
I will fill up with fruit, veggies, salty air-popped popcorn, crackers, cheese, yogurt and have a glass of juice with dinner....

I also decided to write down something I'm grateful for every single day. There are SO many things and reasons to BE absolutely and completely grateful and thankful for and I reckon first and most of all I'm so grateful to my Lord and Saviour Jesus. Where would I be without my faith??

    Sugar and sugary products are so addictive.. But you will feel so much better eliminating it from your food plan.
    Try not to be too strict, that is a recipe for failure. You need to allow yourself a treat at least once or twice a week.
    Remember this is not a diet
    It is a way of life for the rest of your life.
    Have fun finding new ways to ease your cravings .. Hugs Susie emoticon emoticon emoticon

    That is one heck of a plan, you can do what ever you put your mind to ! My only suggestion is to not be tooo strict with yourself, Maybe consider planning in your week one portion controlled sweet. Sometimes when you are to strict when the cravings come they are harder to resist! I used to be so restrictive with myself that I would binge, feel bad and quit. Now once a week I choose one food that I love. I have found that I have less cravings .

    Good luck to you emoticon
