Did you know you can have a sugar withdrawal if you stop consuming it? I didn't! I knew sugar was considered a drug, but didn't think about withdrawal until yesterday.... In my "get healthy" resolution I chose to drop all sugar, I can easily say I am/was a sugar-aholic. I love it, it's awesome, and tastes sooo good in form of yummy chocolate...like a butterfinger...or snickers...or...I better stop! Anyway I dropped sugar pretty much cold turkey, except for my coffeemate in the morning, you will never get that away from me...EVER! I must have it and there is only a tiny bit in it so it does not affect me. Monday I didn't see any change, but yesterday was bad. I felt like death, and the best way to describe it is the worst flu ever, that all over ache feeling. All I wanted to do was lay down and sleep, I even went to bed at 9 pm! This morning though, my gosh did I feel great! I was full of energy, and still am! I feel very awake, and better than I have in a long time! Amazing what getting rid of something in your diet can do, and I can't wait to see what I feel like after a few weeks if I feel this great after two days!
I also started my couch to 5K app again yesterday, and walked for 30 mins around the block today. I push the kids in the stroller, and even attach the boys so they can get a workout. Reeses doesn't know it but he made a New Years resolution to loose 5-10 lbs. Dachshunds are skinny dogs, but he is not! He is even on diet dog food, he wasnt to happy when I poured that into his bowl though!
Hopefully all of us can keep this up! Fingers crossed!
