Today marks my third day of Step 2 in the Sugar Addicts Guide to Total Recovery. You will remember step one was making sure to eat protein for breakfast everyday. I can proudly say I have been able to accomplish this task successfully so far. Step 2 is journaling everything you eat.
Remembering that I have made a commitment to give this 7 step method to recovery my full force effort I began logging. It is not too bad. For this program I don't have to count calories and measurements. I am simply writing everything down, how I feel physically, and how I feel emotionally, pretty simple. What I have learned so far is that a piece of paper does not judge you. There is no point in lying to a piece of paper about what I ate for dinner because in all honesty the paper just does not care. Neither does the pen I am using to write down my diet. And they don't talk to each other when your back is turned about how dang girl, she really should not have had that brownie. :)
Unfortunately I still can not really tell if anything has changed as far as my sugar cravings and moodiness because Tyler and I have been sick with the dreaded head cold for the past 3 days. It is amazing how something as simple as a runny nose and sore throat can cause a full grown adult to curl in a ball with the dogs and have absolutely no desire to move ever again.
I believe tomorrow will begin the journey on to step 3... Protein with every meal bum bum bummmm
