Sugar Blues Day 8

Tuesday, September 19, 2017

Moving forward.

This is getting to be a routine. I'm feeling my body craving healthy foods. I'm less hungry. I'm supposed to start my sugar fast today, but I read the challenge too late - I've had about 3 grams of added sugar today.

I'm going to decide by tomorrow whether or not to cut it out entirely this week - I skipped the first week of the Sugar Challenge because I've done it so frequently... I think I may do better to try 21 days of no/low sugar, instead and keep going from there. I know getting through the week with no sugar was helpful in the past, but mostly for re-setting my body. At the moment, my body DOES feel re-set.

It's like in my last days of smoking cigarettes (many, MANY moons ago), I was fully aware of the feeling of smoke and the damage it did. I was down to one/day and then none. And embraced none.

I don't think I want to do NO sugar, because it's hidden in so many things, but I probably want to make it a practice to stick within no more than 3 - 6 g of added sugar each day, with some days with no added sugar.

Considering this one...
