Once again, I am off the sugar. This weekend we went to Cheesecake Factory with a gift card and split a piece of pumpkin cheesecake and it was divine, but now I'm done (until Thanksgiving).
Last week I bought some Halloween candy on sale and proceeded to have a few pieces every day. And Jason made an apple pie last Sunday so we had some of that with ice cream for dessert for a few nights. I walked to work a few days, but haven't been to the gym in too long, especially considering the $46 a month it costs.
Last week I noticed that I felt kind of yucky a lot of the time, in direct proportion to the amount of sugar I had eaten that day. It's time to get this monkey off my back (Yes, it is very similar to heroin in my life).
No sugar today so far, and my head is achey. At least I'm familiar with this process and know that by Wednesday I will feel FANTASTIC. But not today.
I need some motivation. A friend emailed me and asked for this blog address again because she needed some inspiration (Hi, Donna!) and I thought to myself, bwahahahahaha! I mean, when she knew me in Chicago, I weighed about 40 pounds more than I do now, so I suppose that whole aspect might be a little inspiring. But I feel like a giant lazy bones lately, with no desire to go to the gym. Maybe feeling fantastic with no sugar in my system will help with the motivation.
Also, reading articles like this one don't help with the whole desire to go to the gym. More reason to get off the sugar, I suppose.
