21DSD – Days 8 & 9
Day 8 – Today was the first day I worked out since I began the 21 Day Sugar Detox. I think it went well. I was able to complete the T25 with minimal modifications. I felt great!
Today however, I did not eat well. I didn’t cheat (that I knew of at the time) or anything but I just didn’t eat enough to sustain my body with the calories that I had burned. I ate a normal breakfast (before working out) of Eggs and Bacon but for lunch we ate an early lunch so that we could get Addyson to MusiCamp on time and I wasn’t that hungry so I just ate a slice of turkey and a banana. We dropped Addyson off and then headed to Costco then back home for a quick rest time for Owen and I then back to pick her up just in time for a friends birthday party at The Flight Deck. The kids were so excited for the party! I didn’t grab a snack (which I should’ve since I did for the kids) so I went to the party unprepared. I wasn’t tempted to eat the cake or bubble gum or rock candy or cup cakes but for some reason I REALLY wanted some yogurt. I didn’t give in and stayed strong. We headed home after 5 and I started dinner for the kids. I had already told Justin I wouldn’t have time to prepare a “real” meal for us so we’d have to make do with other things for dinner. I found a can of Lentil and Vegetable Soup in the pantry and thought that sounded great. It wasn’t and then upon further research in the 21 Day Sugar Detox book, lentils are on the “do not eat” list anyway. So technically I “cheated” but I didn’t know it and it wasn’t good anyway :-).
Day 9 – So far so good…didn’t work out this morning because I was still pretty drained from yesterday. I don’t think I ate enough. I’ve never woken up so hungry. Don’t know if this is normal but I’m going to try and eat more balanced meals today. I feel good, just feel hungry but surprisingly not for any of my go-to foods for curbing immediate hunger.
Today, I’m going to be thankful for the 8 successful days I have completed and ask for prayer for the next 12.
