MONDAY: I walked into the faculty room and the PTA brought dozens of cupcakes for all the teachers. I glared at the frosted temptations, then turned my nose up at them. Fortunately, there was a bowl of fruit for the healthy eaters, however, it was sweetened with sugar. [deflated shoulders]
TUESDAY: I can't remember how I was tempted, but I spent day 3 with a mild migraine from the detoxing.
WEDNESDAY: The PTA gave me a glass apple filled with caramels for my birthday. I gave every piece away. woot. woot! Talk about hard to do tho. Caramels are a personal favorite.
THURSDAY: My birthday! I knew I would cheat on No Sugar May on my b-day, but all things considered, I didn't do that bad. I ate 1/2 a cupcake, which gave me a migraine, and 1 cinnamon twist with frosting, which gave me a 2-day belly ache. I'm not even kidding. I have a stomach ache for 2 flipping days. Course I think it was also in part because I ate SO MUCH at dinner that night.
FRIDAY: My body started craving sugar again--I know! Already?--still, I stayed strong and didn't give in.
SAT: My husband threw me a surprise bday party! He made cake and served it with ice cream. I ate it. [frown.]
|Rick surprised me with a Kindle! [fist bump]|
TUESDAY: Gardening for 1 1/2 hrs. (including mowing the back lawn)
WEDNESDAY: Gardening for 1 hr. I planted 5 raspberry plants.
SAT: Gardening for 4 hrs. I tilled the garden more than 10 times, pulled out yards of brush and weeds, reset hoses, got rocks out of the garden, and raked up mounds for the grow boxes.
All things considered, I shoulda lost at least a pound, right?!
I gained 2 lbs!
What the what, No Sugar May?! Grrrr.
Alright, so it was my fault, really. I didn't do a whole lot of calorie counting this week. And I ate out 3 times! I usually only eat out once a month regularly, but this week I ate A LOT and it was restaurant food. Restaurants are good at masking the portions sizes with dark lighting and optical-illusion plates. I fell right into the trap.
I've gotten make this better.
Stay tuned for the upgraded No Sugar May plan.
