Is it really an addiction?

Monday, March 17, 2014

Well here I am. Prepared for the week and ready to go. I am ready to get on it this week. I have been doing a ton of research on how to beat this addiction. I know that sounds silly and many people out there are like, "suck it up and just stop eating sugar!" If it were that easy, trust me, I would have already but I am having to play mind games with myself and get me out of these bad habits. I am ready...bring it on!!!! I am bring God into this more and focusing on my time with him this week. I am also tracking food and mainly focusing on my nutrition. The goal is to get my nutrition in check this week so I can start running and 5k training next week, officially.

I did week one of taming your sweet tooth this week and tracked how much sugar I eat. Man! I eat a TON of sugar and I am feeling the impact it has on my life! I have felt convicted lately that it is holding me back from who I could be and my calling from God. I feel like I am not living up to my potential and what God has for me because I am too tired. This is a fixable thing. It will allow me to get my business going to I can stay home with my kid (eventually, hopefully kids) and so that I can take care of my family the way I should be.

I am moving forward with week 2 of taming your sweet tooth and continuing my research.

    OH YOU BET SUGAR IS AN ADDICTION. BUT NOT JUST SUGAR - ALSO ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS. I HAVE TRIED FOR YEARS TO NOT PUT SPLENDA IN MY COFFEE AND I JUST CAN'T DO IT. AND I ALSO CANNOT SURVIVE WITHOUT MY COFFEE. I AM TRYING TO CUT THE REGULAR WITH DECAF. I AM NOW AT 2 DECAF SCOOPS TO ONE REGULAR. I WILL TRY FOR ALL DECAF NEXT WEEK. YOU GO FOR NO SUGAR AND I WILL TRY TO GO CAFFEINE FREE EVEN IF I HAVE TO SLEEP MOST OF THE DAY. LOL
