Using An App To Help Me Stay On Path

Hello there you blank beautiful screen. It's been awhile. I took a little time last week to just step back, disconnect, and honestly breathe. I felt myself needing a breather and a moment to adjust to going back to work (part-time), Lil Man going to school full time, soccer and running for him, and just daily life. You know what I mean.

My typical morning is starting to consist of some type of early morning workout, rushing home to get lunches made, making sure I'm back in time so hubby can get to work, grabbing a quick shower, getting Lil Man to the bus stop, finally getting breakfast for me, packing my work bag, getting laundry started, cleaning up the kitchen, taking the dogs in and out and in and out...  and if possible I try to get caught up on email/social media before I head into work.

But I'm back and feeling a little more like I have things under control. I think I'm finding

Day 3 Of Overcoming Sugar Addiction

Day 3 - the day I've never been able to get past because I've always caved. Today, at times, I came close to throwing in the towel. I don't think so much because the cravings were massively intense, but the stress level was very intense today. And because of that I wanted comfort - I wanted chocolate.

What I wanted was to get in the car and drive to Sweet Frog. It did cross my mind, but I didn't. I didn't eat the cookies, or the snickers either. And that Little Debbie oatmeal pie is still in the cabinet.

What I did do was take some deep breaths and reminded myself of the why. Why am I giving up sugar anyway? What's my own personal reason?

And this afternoon around 3pm when the cravings were more cravings and not just the stress, I had some apples with cheese and just a few pretzels. I still wanted something sweet so I ate some popcorn and a few grapes.

By dinner time, I was wanting carbs. So I had a baked potato with pepper jack cheese.

And I drank water throughout the day along with some peppermint tea.

And I finished the night off some some blackberries.



Tomorrow, Lil Man and I plan to venture out for some last day before back-to-school fun. I know we'll be eating out for lunch, and the temptations will be everywhere.

It's been YEARS of trying to get past 3 days without having junk food sweets... But day 3 is complete... on to Day 4.

I am forever thankful for your support. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
