No Sugar Challenge Update – Lisa

I have been having major internet connectivity issues for the past week.  I’m sorry for this delay, hopefully things will be resolved soon.

For now, I’m writing you from work.  Shhh… It’s alright, it’s after 5:30.

Last week was Week 6 of the No Sugar Challenge.  In week 6, you can reintegrate some sugar to your diet.  And I know me, so I knew exactly what was going to happen.  I basically just ate whatever I wanted.  I paid attention to a few things here and there, but I didn’t really control myself.  I’m bad.  So, so bad.  I didn’t even eat that much fruit.  I ate other junk.  I can’t remember what all I ate, but I do know I ate a piece of cake last night.  It was delicious.  That I don’t regret.

But this behavior has made me rethink that maybe it was too soon for me to eat sugar again.  Mostly, it made me feel like I need to just be more disciplined and be mindful of what I’m eating.  I can’t just go all willy nilly again like I was before.

I haven’t weighed myself since the last time I told you I lost 4 pounds.  After that I noticed that I lost a few more inches on my thighs and butt.  I honestly don’t think I would have noticed the missing inches if I paid attention to the number that I weigh.  And I can guarantee that the number is still around the same from where I started.  That’s just the way my body is.  I’ve decided to ditch the scale and only pay attention to how my body feels and how my clothes fit.

After being all crazy last week, I decided that I’m going to cut sugar out for just a little while longer.  I’ll make a few exceptions, of course.  Emily wants to try out that shrimp and banana sandwich tomorrow, and I cannot wait to see what this concoction tastes like!

As for that oatmeal and egg recipe, I found one from Martha Stewart but I haven’t tried it yet. 

Here’s to hoping the internet is back up the rest of the week!  There might be a video in the near future, so check back from time to time 🙂
