Day 5 Of Overcoming Sugar Addiction

Yes these cookies are STILL here. 
Day 5.. honestly.. I'm still a little in shock that I'm able to type that.  I've never gone 5 days without having some type of sugary sweet. I guess I should say I don't remember the last time that's happened. I'm sure at some point in my life that happened!

Today has been fairly easy. I am still finding myself reaching for things out of habit. I was reaching for a a candy cane which I hardly ever eat. I didn't eat it. I decided if I wanted peppermint I would make some tea. But by the time I got around to making tea, I forgot about it.

The 3pm time is still when I feel myself wanting something sweet. But I'm finding that
apple slices and cheese are pretty tasty. And after dinner - I always wants sweets after dinner. So I've been eating grapefruit or grapes. (And yes I eat the grapefruit without sugar. That's something that I always did.)

I'm also finding that I'm able to listen to my body more than I was able to before. I'm recognizing hunger and when I'm not hungry. Mindless eating is becoming less and less of a habit. I'm sleeping better (this could be due to less caffeine that inadvertently happened while ditching sugar). I'm not sure of the reason that I'm sleeping better other than I know I'm not having night sweats like I did when I was eating sugar.

Emotionally I feel more calm, more level with less highs and lows.

These are words I never really knew if I would be able to type, but day 5 is complete.. on to day 6.
