So maybe I DO have a bit of a BAD attitude! There is something very therapeutic and indulgent in being perfectly honest… 10 days down and being sugar-free sucks! Right now it is just not good. Blah. Bleck. Booooring! I honestly feel sorry for myself. I’m wondering if this was a bad idea.
10 days sugar-free and I feel no better physically, no gain in energy, no increased wiggle room in my clothes, no improved focus or memory, nothing. All I have is the feeling of pride that I’ve not faltered… no sugary treats, no frozen yogurt, no ketchup, no iced white mochas, no cookies, cakes or gum. Yes, I have kept my commitment! That today is an achievement I am proud of. That is the ONE positive thing I can feel good about this far: I made a (very public) commitment and am sticking with it. I guess that IS worth something after all.
I realize the month ain’t over and I’ve likely got to go further down the sugar-free road before I notice improved scenery. I’m going to make a pit stop at the health food store for a supplement to take the edge off my sugar longing… and hopefully make the scenery on this trail not so bleak. No worries for now, I’m not stopping… I’m gonna stay on this road for the next 20 days! As of now, my current state of mind is: I may have been sugar-free for 10 days but… so what?! 😝
