Cut The Sugar and Unhealthy Carbs - Doctor's Orders
Saturday, August 10, 2019
Now that I have the alcohol (#LoseDaBooze) mostly under control (one year experiment up on Monday with 318 Days AF or 87% AF and plans to keep going AF), it's time to tackle the sugar cravings.
It's no secret for those who cut out alcohol - they experience more than the usual sugar cravings and early on, I always say it's ok to give in as you don't want to change too much at once. But I'm ready now to make the shift.
I've been off course with my healthy eating allowing the unhealthy carbs (fries, chips, desserts, chocolate, etc) and it made me crave it even more. I'm now on Day 6 of my Clean Eating 7 Day Challenge and I'm on course for continuing.
I'll be following the Always Hungry plan slowly starting with the principles and trying recipes.
I got bloodwork done at the doctor's and will be referred to an allergy specialist as I believe I may have some unidentified allergies. My blood pressure is high again so I'm back to my daily workouts and I am already noticing a difference.
My sleep was better last night and overall feeling good about going into my 2nd week of the 21 Day Fix. Loving the regular workouts again!
I also pulled out my measuring tools - to keep myself on track because even healthy food can be unhealthy if you aren't having the right portions or too much!
Happy Saturday SP'eeps!!
