I woke to a mild headache which is still here a bit.  Nothing else major to report minus some cravings.  What I’d like to do is start making some decadent treats like these Primal Choco-Nutty Treats.  I adore dark chocolate and they seem right up my alley.  I have zero shredded coconut in the house and am almost out of the oil so shopping is required.

I am on vacation until Monday (2 weeks off – nice!).  I decided to axe the sugar this week after talking to some friends last Thursday since I was worried about major withdrawal symptoms.  I’ve been lucky since so far (knock on wood) they have been totally not-so-bad.

Our talk was one of many regarding nutrition.  One friend had been off sugar for a few weeks (the other for a very long time) and was telling us how much better she feels and how she has no cravings now.  That finally sealed the deal for me – I knew I just had to bite the bullet.  I needed to do something to A. Make me feel better and B. Hopefully knock out my adult acne.  What I am hoping for is clearer skin and more energy.

I won’t lie and say that losing weight won’t make me happy, either.  I have done a lot of work accepting my body the last few years but I will admit that I want to be a smaller size.  Not exactly for aesthetic purposes but because it would be easier to get into the yoga asanas I was able to do at a smaller size.  And to have an easier time clothes shopping would be heaven.  I am also soooo much stiffer than I was even 6 months ago (same size, though).  I’ve got a few things to work out here and a smaller sized body would just be one piece of the puzzle.  I am not interested in weighing myself, yelling at or degrading myself for any “slip ups”, or partaking in any obsessive body/diet behaviors.


I woke up this morning (Day 3) feeling like I had a bender last night.  The headache is still here and I am sluggish big time.  Patiently waiting for my coffee to brew, in hopes that will be the major cure to this feeling (ha!).  I have a day of cleaning and organizing planned which was probably dumb to plan for the third day but it’s gotta get done.

Day 2 turned out better than I expected.  I had a minor headache throughout the day and felt pretty sluggish by the afternoon.  But I expected to feel much worse (like a killer headache), so I won’t complain.

I did have a teeny sip of chocolate milk – by accident!  LOL  My daughter and I ate out for lunch and the restaurant gave her chocolate syrup and milk to combine.  I helped her and silly me absent-mindedly took a sip to see if it was all mixed.  As soon as it hit my tongue I realized what I had done.  I wonder how long it will take to have avoiding sugar become second nature.

I am frustrated a bit – I ordered Sugar Shock last Thursday and it has yet to arrive.  We use Amazon Prime so it should have been here by now.  I’m feeling impatient.

I’d like some more sugar-free/kicking the sugar habit to the curb blogs to read.  If you stumble upon my wee little baby blog please feel free to post suggestions in the comments!
