It’s been 21 days since I have consumed any sugar and 5 days since I had any starch (I succumbed to fries & gravy thanks to Lenny Kravitz… and Jodee 💕).
This no-sugar thing is SO hard!! My cousin is on a diet of his own – no booze, no cigarettes – and has been since I started on my sugarless path. The other day I asked how he was holding up. With a smile and a plate of apple pie a la mode in hand, he said, “I’m fine!”
Grrrrrr… I wanted to smack that plate out of his hand and dive face first into the ice cream.
Inhale, exhale… it’s fine. I am fine.
Only 9 more days of this and I will have gone a full 30 without sugar. To be honest, I do feel more energetic. I don’t need coffee and I have been waking up with more ease. There are times when I just miss the taste of some of my favourite things… like the Caramel Cone Explosion from Haagan Daaz. Have you ever tried that before? It is so good, I am salivating just writing about it.
(I miss you, Ice Cream ❤)
PS I am eating meat now. Too many restricitions on the diet was making me loopy.
