Surrender to the sweetness

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!
