the miracles of giving up sugar-an update
Okay I confess........I have screwed up a few times......okay, more than a few! But, it wasn't like the binging I was doing! :) But even when I DO screw up on it, because the rest of my diet is good, it doesn't hit me as hard as it used to. I would bottom out by around 2pm-had to take naps every day and I would still wake up exhausted. Now, I able to stay up till like 11pm, wake up 5:30-6am and stay up all day with no naps at all-generally I am not even tired. Its just amazing to me. My mind does not feel fuzzy and I feel happy-not grumpy. No more headaches! I constantly had headaches. When I was consuming the quantity of sugar and pepsi that I was, I was a mess (okay, I admit it). I could not figure out why I was so tired and unhappy about everything-I had NO reason to feel that way. I know in my blog posts you probably could not tell I felt that way-I didn't want anyone to know.....it drove me crazy that I felt the way I did. I have none of that now........its SO awesome! Its still a bit tough to get up in the morning, but as long as I get up first thing and head for my yogurt (plain-ugh-but it has loads of protein) I do pretty good. Walking past my favorite sweets at the store is much less tempting now too.......so I think I am on my way :) I just gotta stick with this. I will also admit I am getting addicted to going to the gym-I went 5 days last week and will probably do the same this week. I LOVE starting my day out that way-I have even more energy the rest of the day when I go.
