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

This Happened When I Added Sugar Back

As I unwrapped the Godiva truffle, I trembled a little. I kid you not. The velvety chocolate melted in my mouth. And I honestly thought I would eat just one. I did the first time.

But as the day went on, I had another, and another until by the end of the day I wound up binge eating about 8 at one time. I felt horrible physically and emotionally. It was my first binge of all or nothing in almost a month. How could I so easily slip back into old habits? I ate an entire bag.

The following days consisted of brownies, cupcakes and cookies.

And I felt sick... physically sick. I was bloated, my joints swelled and hurt, cranky, extremely moody with extreme highs and lows. I was no longer sleeping through the night, and by the 3rd night I woke up with night sweats.



If you are disappointed in me, trust me I am even more disappointed in myself. And I told myself it was time to get a grip.

I'm on my 1st day of no sugar. I don't have a predetermined amount of time that I will stay completely off of processed junk sweets. But I can see just how easy it is for me personally to slip back into old habits. That is not what I want for me or my family. And it is up to me to make the changes.

I did weigh in this week. Last week's weigh in (Another Week With Less Sugar Another Weigh In) was 125.8.

This week's weigh in was
127.8

Yeah, I'll just leave that number right there. I don't see that number as a defeat. I see it as a number, a learning experience, and a reminder of unhealthy habits.

But I can tell you that I have a burning desire to get this 43 soon to be 44 year old body in the best health that I can both physically and emotionally.

And I am doing what I can within my power to make it happen..... one small change at a time.

Join me.... I would love the company. And I would love to help motivate and encourage you along the way.
