So I mentioned a while ago that I was doing a November sugar detox. Ha! More like a November sugar RE-tox. UGH.
I was all signed up and ready to go with the 21 Day Sugar Detox and I lasted all of a week before some delicious looking pizza, lack of prep and lack of will power tripped me up. From there it was a downward spiral (dramatic, right?) I spun out of control and made ALL THE COOKIES. Those cookies were damn good but not really helping with my sugar cravings which is why I wanted to detox in the first place.
So where am I left now? Still hitting that sugar most evenings (ice cream! m&m’s! cookies!) but trying to moderate a little better which is such a tricky thing. In some ways I’ve given into the fact that it’s the holiday season and, for me, treats are part of enjoying this time of year. Maybe in January I’ll revisit this sugar issue when it’s a little easier to turn down the sweets and not look like the resident heath nut. I’m recalling an article that should have made me think twice about doing something like this during the holidays to begin with and next time I’ll follow that advice. Lesson learned.
In the mean time I’m looking forward to a holiday party or two and maybe a couple days of whole 30-ish eating in between to remind myself how much better I feel when I eat well (SO much better). That way – just maybe – I won’t face plant into the cookies the next time I see them.
