I must confess. I am addicted to sugar!
I am not sure of what triggered me, but I fell completely off the wagon! I have had some form of chocolate candy and/or coffee EVERYDAY in the last few weeks. Now, I recognize the cravings.
It has to stop! My health is at risk…my belly fat is increasing; I’m lethargic, often feeling stressed and mood swings are on the rise!
If I feel like this because of sugar, I can’t imagine how a serious drug addict feels.
I was doing well drinking green smoothies (although I made them sweet too with Stevia), but at least my body was responding positively.
Sugar causes disease and ailments I do not want to live with nor die sooner because of.
So, it should be simple- right? Just STOP!
Like any addiction – there is more to it. Sure, I can say the stress of finishing up the school year as a teacher, the teaching internship, trip to Albuquerque, my son’s high school graduation, blah blah blah – are the reasons, but we know it’s deeper than that!
I’m not focused on anything but my health here. I was so happy about my most recent blood work results because I was no longer classified as PRE-DIABETIC.
I lost focus – now, I must refocus.
As my friend Nita just taught me, “It’s not a do over, it’s a DO BETTER.”
