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.

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?
