30 days of no sugar: week 3.
only once did i go off the deep end this week. luckily i have a good excuse (at least in my opinion). yesterday was my mom's birthday. within my family, each of us have a different cake that we request for our special day. my mom's go-to is a decadent, homemade, chocolate cherry cake. since a. & i have been away and have missed most birthday celebrations for the past 8 years, we fully participated in all the birthday cake traditions. so yes, i had a big 'ol piece of chocolate cake...oh, and ice cream too...
while i'm happy to announce the cravings have subsided, i'm definitely realizing a sugar-free existence isn't a permanent lifestyle change for me. and that's okay. i'm still learning a lot about my cravings, what i can do to keep them at bay & most importantly, how to enjoy sugar in moderation.
it's great stuff to learn. and i'm hoping i'll have a few more eureka moments over these next few days.
