Surrender to the sweetness

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

Day 3 of greatly reduced sugar consumption and very few processed foods and...

I'm starting to feel better. Not 100%, and I'm still really, really hungry all the time, but I am feeling less tired than yesterday. One weird thing - I feel like my belly is flatter. This is probably all in my mind. I haven't drank a soda all week, and this is the first week I've done that...maybe EVER. I hope I can make it through the weekend. That'll be the hard part. Still very few processed foods besides my Nature Valley protein bar, which I feel that I need in order to survive. I did a workout today that ended up being pretty intense. I did the stationary bike on "Fat Burn Mode" with the resistance cranked for about 20 minutes. I was soaked afterwards. Then, I went to Abs (made it the whole way through this time) and managed to hold my plank for about 30 seconds this time. Can't wait 'til I get back to bada$$ mode where I can hold my planks for a whole minute again. And no, 20 minutes is not a lot of cardio for me but at least it was intense and I didn't feel like I was doing it half-a$$ed like I did yesterday.

Oh, and I was getting a cup of coffee at work this morning and I saw a packet of Splenda, and the back of the packet said, "Surrender to the sweetness". And I thought, "Oh he!! no! I WILL make it through this!"

I will NOT surrender to the sweetness!

    I so admire everyone who is doing the no sugar challenge. I tried it about a year ago, and for me, week one wasn't so bad, but week two was terrible. I gave up toward the end of week two/beginning of week three, but it was mostly because I was crying all the time. You seem to be getting through the worst of it sooner, which is probably better.

    Isn't awful when you find you can't do things you could just a few weeks ago? About 3 weeks ago, I jogged 4 miles without a walking break. Yesterday, I needed to walk before mile 1 was finished. It won't take long to build back up though - you'll be holding a plank for 90 seconds in no time!

    emoticon 's are not easy for me either. I can do them better than I used to though and it feels wonderful.

    emoticon ing sugar out of the spotlight isn't easy either.
