Day 6 is here! I don’t think I’ve ever been this committed to a plan such as this. I have to give a big thank you to my diet buddy S. She really keeps me in check. Not to say I haven’t had my struggles. I came home the other night and the hubs had made pizza. (Note: the hubs has been EXTREMELY considerate but he is not doing the challenge. And I don’t expect him to.)
I’ve had two major struggles: sugar and bread. And sugar is in bread so that explains that. Actually, sugar is in everything. Everything! Even items marked as sweetened with Stevia or Splenda still have sugar in them. (I’m aware Splenda is a sugar derivative. )
I did score a major victory. Bacon. I finally found uncured, no sugar bacon. I fried up a few slices and dipped it in my guacamole. I’d never eaten anything so delicious. Could be the hunger talking. I said the same thing about the cranberries I put in my almond butter the other day.
I’ve also had an NSV (the plan terms these as non scale victories because weighing yourself during the 30 days is forbidden forcing you to look at other signs that you’re succeeding). I’ve been having issues with my legs for the past 4 years and guess what. By Day 4, it was gone. I won’t go into details because, well, boundaries people, but I’m thrilled with this NSV.
Later today we have a family function and it’s going to be tough but I’m not giving in. When the food breaks out, I’m going to head over and distract myself with my in law’s new puppy. Puppies don’t judge☺
