Sugar Blues Day 3

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

Again, I'm grateful for the comments, suggestions, commiseration.


Got through yesterday just fine. Actually had one of my apple-blueberry power muffins instead of the toast. They are less than .5 tsp maple syrup per muffin as the sweetener and they're whole grain, high protein, and chock full of fruit, so that was a good choice.

Today I had a wonderful day, but am hungry now and had a good, healthy dinner. Today's challenge on the Sugar Challenge was a reward every time I overcome a craving. So... my reward is going to be getting off the computer and reading a book while taking a bath... that should be satisfying and relaxing and food in the tub would be just plain gross... emoticon

Another thing I noticed - I had more strength when I worked out this a.m. I think I have an almost immediate reaction to getting sugar out.

    The muffins sound really good! And good on you for sticking with healthy eating for the day. I like your idea of a reward- I find reading a book and relaxing to be a wonderful treat. I broke down and had desserty stuff after supper last night, and my joints ached all night. Every time I want a sweet, I am going to remember how uncomfortable I was, so maybe I won't want sugar so badly.
