I've always been a major sugar addict. I know this. But now, since going Paleo, I've been acutely aware of just how sugar-dependent I truly am. Dependent, as in: "This York Peppermint Pattie is okay because it's got dark chocolate and egg whites in it." Or, if I'm being truly honest, "These THREE York Peppermint Patties are okay because they've got dark chocolate and egg whites, and they're buy 2, get one free. Can't pass up a deal like that! And, heck, if I eat them all tonight, no one will know, right?"
Which brings me to today... I began Diane Sanfilippo's "The 21-Day Sugar Detox" (www.the21daysugardetox.com)! I chose to do level 3, since I am already used to not eating bread, pasta, and grains or refined, pre-packaged stuff. She even has a workout for each of the 21 days (which, sadly, I chose to do level 1, since I am severely out of shape after having my four kids and arm and shoulder issues - which, by the way, was challenging even though it was supposed to be the "easy" workout!). I enjoyed it, though, and decided to jot down this quick blog entry before heading to the kitchen to scarf down some scrambled eggs with veggies and avocado! YUM!
I will keep everyone filled in on my progress. I am looking forward to feeling the amazing LIBERATION from sugar addiction, and it might be nice (Who am I kidding? It would be awesome!) to drop some more pounds over these three weeks!
Ta ta for now!
