I read something recently that made me think. It read, “If you could do something that you knew would significantly change your life for the better, why aren’t you doing it?”
Where do I begin? That statement sounds so “Dr. Phil” but I think it’s true. So I started to think about what I would do. It’s not like I have only one thing I could do to change my life. But I could start with one. So I picked my sugar monkey.
It’s now day three of my life without processed sugar and let me tell you…
OH MY GOD IT’S SO FREAKING HARD!!!
I can’t believe how hard it is to get sugar out of my life! It’s in everything and it’s everywhere! You’d think that something so innocent sounding would be a stroll in the park, but it’s not.
On top of it, I’m suffering withdrawals. Believe me I know what withdrawals are and what they feel like and these are withdrawals. After the first day I was experiencing flu like symptoms and feeling like shit! I think about my favorite candy all the time. It’s interfering with my daily routine! And what make it worse, IT’S EVERYWHERE!
Every corner I turn, someone has a bowl of M&Ms or something. My wife has sugary stuff all over the place. She doesn’t understand why I just can’t say no. IT’S EVERYWHERE! Every packaged food that you eat is loaded with it.
This is gonna be really tough.
I’m a wreck.
