Sugar Addiction Challenge Day 1: The beginning!

Woohoo, Day 1! Woke up ready to ROCK this thing!!

Weigh-in Day 1: 139.4 lbs….NOT pleased!

I had a great breakfast and climbed 6 flights of stairs in the morning
to get to work. 1st time since before my injury!

By 10am I was tired, hungry and unmotivated. So tempted to take some
of my accrued PTO and go home, but I stuck it out. I also resisted eating
something that would give me a temporary high to keep me awake. I
didn’t eat great the day before…like it was my last meal…so I think I was
still getting that stuff out of my system. I didn’t crave my salad for lunch,
because I had forgotten all the goodies to go on it (tomato, zucchini, beans,
etc)…that made it VERY boring. I still think I wanted to eat more junk.

So I skipped lunch and didn’t end up eating until nearly 3pm. Shockingly I felt
better after that; who knew eating a little good stuff would help!?

I went to my bloodletting appointment after work (just blood donation…
nothing voodoo related I promise) and totally forgot to prep for it; I normally
eat a high protein, iron, salt and water diet prior to it, because I have weirdly
low blood pressure and need the boost. I got lightheaded ½ way through
but was saved with a small bit of apple juice. NO clue what type of juice it
was; so I might have already slipped on my first day if it had added sugar!

Think I’ll survive?

    Hi, you forgot to let us know how much your height is. It is easier to see how much different your weight is to the ideal one. Please update us! First step is the hardest, so please stay strong!
