Though I had a binge yesterday, I managed to not eat more than just a tiny amount of sugary foods. I would not have been able to eat them if a salesperson in a store had not sneaked 4 tiny chocolates in the bag of stuff I bought. 'What a nice gift' - not. Apart from those four tiny things - maybe just 2 real bites - I have not eaten refined sugars for 8 days now. Had a terribly bad mood on monday and thought I was getting a depression -until I realized that this must be the sugar withdrawals, once again. I keep getting fooled to think that I really have good reasons to feel upset and irritable or even angry, when it really is the result of my poor brain screaming for it's fix.
My exercise has mostly been walks with my dog plus some biking. Burned 200 to 400 calories per day that way. Sleep; I am going to bed more or less on time but because I lost so much sleep in the past weeks I still feel very tired.
