Yeah – I’m off the wagon. Really I should say that I never got on the damn thing in the first place. I haven’t been able to walk away from sugar yet. Isn’t it always the same with addictions?
Anyway, I’ve decided to do what has worked in the past when I’m stuck like this. I’m going to do the first four days of Dr. Ian Smith’s Four Day Diet. I’m not disciplined enough to go beyond four or eight days because…well…it’s boring as all hell. Plus, and this is the most important part, it’s a DIET. I don’t do DIETS anymore. I lost the first 16 pounds by…shhhh…this is a secret…EATING LESS AND EXERCISING MORE. It’s not magic it’s math…calories in vs. calories out.
It’s the quality of those calories that matter. Basically, I feel like shit right now and it’s all about the damn sugar that I’ve been putting in my body. We all know I have a problem with moderation (helloooo…alcoholic here) and when I over indulge I feel it. I have aches, pains and swelling in my joints, I’m pretty sure my blood pressure is up and I’m sluggish, moody and short tempered. Yep – sugar overload.
Dr. Ian’s plan is easy to follow and the best part is that it’s only for four days…I can do anything for four days. When the first four days is complete I can go on to the next four or I can just go back to what I was doing prior to the holiday season. Eating good, healthy food and trying to move my
fat ass more than usual.
I’ll let you know how it goes and if, at the end of these four days, I can start up the calendar again on the no sugar thing.
Oh…and I am sober for three years today! 36 months, 624 weeks, 1,095 days if my math is correct. Today SoberMom really does rock!
