Holy Hell... I haven't even been 1 day into this sugar free challenge and I feel like death. Ok, so I'm probably exaggerating slightly, maybe... Yesterday, I didn't make the best choice and completely over indulged in wine. Today I'm nursing a hangover and kicking myself for letting myself get so drunk to begin with. I've struggled with alcohol for the longest time, it is my crutch. I won't go quite as far as to call myself an alcoholic, but I definitely feel safe calling it an addiction. I'm hoping this 10 day sugar free challenge will be the stepping stone I need to cut alcohol out of my life permanently. I don't like who I am drunk, and I don't have the willpower to know when enough is enough. I wish I had the ability to moderate but seeing as I don't, I have to follow the "all or nothing" approach to this. Just writing this post made me realize that this really is a problem.
Onto a more positive note... I drove an hour and a half to the nearest Whole Foods this afternoon to stock up on some yummy, healthy foods. I spent over an hour there reading labels. I was honestly shocked when I realized all the hidden sugars in foods! This is going to be tougher than I thought, but I'm sure it's totally going to be worth it in the end.
If you're participating in the Sugar Free Challenge how did your first day go?
Oh! And Happy National Running Day! Get out there and get your run on :)
