Day 1 Of Overcoming Sugar Addiction

Well, I admit I still felt bloated and eh from all of the sugar and processed foods on Thanksgiving.

Breakfast was easy. I skipped my coffee for green tea.

The grocery store was a little more challenging with the donuts smell drifting through the store .. but I did ok and bought some quick already cut up easy to-go snacks where I had one in the car.

And then around 10:30am without even thinking about it I started to lift the lid on the chocolate chip cookies.

I don't think I was even hungry. It was just habit. They are there - might as well have one. I quickly realized what I was doing and put the lid back down.

By afternoon ... the time where I usually cave... and then evening when my day is the most stressful, I struggled. I ate an apple with some string cheese. And then after dinner, I had a grapefruit.

I ended the night with chamomile tea and coloring.

I'm a little surprised at how hard today was. Usually day 1 isn't hard for me. But I've been putting down a lot of sugar in the last couple of weeks... and I mean a lot... so I'm sure my body didn't know how to handle today.

I know ya'll are pulling for me. I know you want me to succeed as much as I do. I'm giving it my best.

Day 1 is complete on my journey to overcoming this sugar addiction... on to day two.

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.

Self Care Is Not Selfish It's Necessary

It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. And I'll say it just one more time in case you didn't hear me. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. I have found through experience that when I'm not taking care of myself, not only do I suffer but my family suffers. So ditch the mom guilt and take the time that you need! I have a tendency to keep pushing my needs aside until I reach a breaking point. We've had a very busy fun summer so far. However, I've struggled to get some quality ' me ' time to decompress. I'll spare you the meltdown that ensued. But the reality check that followed prompted me to take action.

Running My Life

Wow, has it really been 2 years since my last post? I suppose that I allowed life to get in the way. For any faithful blog readers, I apologize. Although, I'm not sure how many people actually read blogs anymore. I think most people use other social media platforms.  (By the way, drop by and say hi on Insta. )  But for some reason, each year when I pay for my google domain, I can't seem to let it go. As silly as it sounds, this little space is mine. And lately I've been struggling with ownership and acceptance. And my domain renewal was a not so gentle reminder that I have a voice .  Seriously, you'd think by 48 that I'd have this figured out - nope - apparently not. However, I am wise enough to know that we have a choice to allow situations to harms us or make us stronger. I'm choosing to let this mid-life quandary make me stronger. And because of this, I'm setting goals, taking charge, and reexamining priorities.  Movin' on... 

When The Planner In You Must Be Flexible

In case you haven’t figured this out by now, I’m a planner. I know - shocker right?!? :) So although I love substitute teaching, it’s making the planner in me anxious. And it’s been reeking havoc on my workouts. Basically the morning of or maybe the night before, I find out if I’m working. So my day ( that I thought I had planned ) can be turned upside down in an instant. But, truthfully, isn’t that really the same with everyone?
