I had a really hard time not eating last night. Partly, I was hungry. But by the time Marcus got home with groceries, it was later than I wanted to eat. I powered through and didn’t eat, and felt good about it this morning. I proved to myself that I CAN do this. I CAN have willpower when I want to. Eating well IS worth it. I feel better and I will look better soon.
Here is what I ate today.
Chocolate banana/strawberry/spinach smoothie
Energy: Pretty good
I’m feeling hungry tonight. My stomach isn’t growling, but feels empty. Maybe it’s my mind that thinks I need to eat and I simply need to retrain it. After all, I don’t need to eat until I feel full, only satisfied, right?
One more day to go and I’m officially done with this sugar strike. It has been far from perfect, but I have made progress, and ultimately that’s what this is about. My birthday is Tuesday and I know it won’t be the best day food-wise. But I will get back on track the very next day.
Progess, not perfection!
