Sugar Addiction Challenge Day 2: Slow Start

Woke up exhausted and grumpy. Had my breakfast eggs and shake around 10am and made me feel better. I forgot my lunch, thinking it was at work, so I only brought in my salad add-ons (broccoli, cauliflower and tomatoes…not an overly satisfying lunch)!

Sugar Challenge No Chocolate

I had chocolate candy right under my nose in a meeting in my manager’s office, a little antsy but not too tempted…yet. Later, the potatochips in the break room leftover from a lunch meeting looked good (I’m a salty snack fiend), but I resisted this as well! I can’t be weak on day 2…that would be a horrible beginning! Need to save my breakdowns for week 2 maybe?

I discovered later in the afternoon that I left an avocado and a couple apples in my desk! I wouldn’t starve after all…I had been worried! Or it might have lead to an excuse to break down and eat junk.

My night was busy and didn’t have time to make much for dinner so just ended up eating about an ounce of cheese and some olives. I had a good night; motivated, enough energy and I stayed on track.

Felt a little nauseous right at bedtime, but I think that is just stress…that isn’t unusual for me; I actually used to suffer from stress induced migraines….and stress induced eating. Stress isn’t my friend!

Wish me luck on Day 3!

I would love your comments below or to hear from you on the Sugar Addiction Facebook Page….nice to think I’m not alone in all this!!

    Wow, I don’t think that I can resist the potato chips. I respect your will in avoiding those foods. However, if you really feel tempted, you can try to make your diet plan a little bit loose in the beginning. If you totally cut them off right away, you’ll be more tempted to break your own rules.

      Yea Lily, potato chips are also one of my weaknesses. For now I’m really trying to focus on added sugar and flour. Other dietary changes are going to wait for a little while. There is a lot I want to work on, but I think I can only handle a few changes at a time! 🙂 I appreciate the comment, it’s helpful!

    I am wondering why you brought only the sandwiches toppings and not the sauce. I would love to have my sandwiches with chili sauce. That would be tasty no matter what’s the toppings are. Is it sauces are off limit?

      Great question Simon! I only brought toppings for my salad (not a sandwich…giving up flour too!), because I thought I had the rest of my salad already at work. But unfortunately it turned out I didn’t have any lettuce at work. As for sauces, I really don’t do a lot of sauces, but they are ok as long as they don’t contain sugar (I also prefer more natural and organic sauces without a lot of junk in them).
