Embracing The Changes In Life

Someone recently asked me about my running and how I currently feel about it. True, I'm not running 5 days per week as I have in the past. I'm not even running my usual 3. I think my new norm for awhile (maybe forever) might be 2 days a week.

How do I feel about it? I feel liberated. I feel like stepping outside of the model of runner to something bigger. Because I've said it before, and I will say it again, I am more than just a runner.
As I grow older with my family, I realize that life is constantly changing. I am constantly changing. And learning to embrace the change definitely makes for an easier transition. For probably the first time in my life, I am

Day 4 Of Overcoming Sugar Addiction

Well, I didn't know what to expect on the other side of Day 3.. but I have to say... today was fairly easy. Other than some cravings after lunch after I had a greasy burger and fries (Five Guys), I wanted something sweet.

But really, I haven't really wanted anything sweet for the most part today. And my orange that I had at breakfast tasted amazing!

So far the differences that I'm noticing by Day 4
is that I'm no longer having nights sweats, I have a lot more energy, I seem to be less hungry (although that could be a fluke), and for some reason I'm colder than normal. But I was hot... a lot.. no pun intended. I felt like an inferno all of the time. Now.. well.. now I'm cold.

Also, without even realizing it, I'm drinking about half of the coffee than I normally did. I am drinking green tea, but I haven't had it every day.

Actually today, I've had less herbal tea than I have had the previous days.

One thing I have added to my diet that I don't normal eat are seeds. I've been putting raw pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds on my salads since I started this challenge. I don't know if it's helping, but it certainly isn't hurting. And I'm not currently cutting carbs at all.



I'm taking this one step at a time. I'm not sure what will come after 7 days, but for now, my goal is 7 days without sugar.

Day 4 is complete, on to day 5! I just did a little happy dance. I've never made it this long without sugary junk food before!


Writing is one of my passions, and I'm stepping out there on faith to follow my dream. If you like this blog or this post, please take a moment to share it with friends.
