I don’t even remember how many days I have been doing this but it is less than a week. The first few days were rough and I almost threw a fit because one night I really, REALLY wanted a bowl of cereal.
I realize that my cravings for sugar were more emotional than hunger related. I wasn’t even HUNGRY when I had my cravings, I just wanted to be HAPPY and I wanted to taste the sweet chocolately taste of Co Co Puffs on my tongue. I couldn’t have it and I was livid, blowing up at my roommate for taking some of my oatmeal. I am such a bitch.
I went to the grocery store to buy crackers for my tuna when I read the box and it turns out that my favorite crackers have sugar in them so I couldn’t have them. I was sad but determined. I had to settle for a salad and a steak. The steak was horrible. I can’t cook for shit. In fact, I hate being in the kitchen so much I wanted to give up and throw it away. It’s BORING in the kitchen. I made it out alive and ate my nasty steak. I was extremely full after my steak because I had eaten only tuna as my meat source for so long.
Anyway. Today I had no cravings at all. I mean, I thought about buying cookies from McDonald’s but I didn’t. I took a long walk on the beach and felt great. I even thought about trying on my old jeans that wouldn’t fit last month, but I think I’ll wait another month to do that.
What will my life become without sugar in my diet? I don’t know. I hope that I can figure out some kind of meal plan that I actually enjoy. So far, I haven’t. So far, meals are sad and take up so much energy to prepare. Why go through all of that and end up being sad while you’re eating it. What tastes good but takes little effort to prepare?
Any suggestions. Please let me know.
