It was a lot harder this week than I was anticipating after pumping myself up to concentrate more on succeeding at this challenge. I am learning things about myself though, which is always what you want with any challenge so instead of confessions I will tell you what I have learnt:
- It's almost like my skin is itchy when 3pm-ish comes around and I cannot have anything sugary
- I immediately want sugar when I have to deal with something hard or I am upset about something (did someone say "emotional eater!")
- I am shocked at the amount of sugar in a lot of things that I wouldn't consider to be sweet foods and all those low-fat food items I need to stay away from as they have a higher sugar content!
- I definitely think about sugar way more than I normally do now that it is not available to me. It's a struggle every day to get through without any sugary foods
Is anyone else doing a challenge like this or have done one in the past? I'd love to hear about it or about any coping techniques you've used to get you through?
I hope you all had a relaxing weekend.
