Day 4

I've been on the sugar detox for 5 days today...and so far besides a craving for food yesterday morning only 2 hours after breakfast and a slight twinge in my head today....all is good.
My mood is so much better, I feel happier.....I woke up this morning with a desire to train...Now if you know my situation the last 2 months, you will know I have struggled to get out to teach my classes, let alone my own personal when I had this desire today it make me feel happier as I felt the OLD me was starting to return...
I cycled for 20 mins while listening to an interview on Youtube regarding health and fitness
When finished I did toning with weights and 7.5kg Kettle-bell for a further 40 in total I trained for an hour..
I never train longer than an hour as I know that if you train well for a short period its ample. Too many people over train....never get results or get injured then give training up totally....I believe its all about balance. Finding the balance in life.

Today I went to do next weeks grocery shopping.....was amazed at how expensive it was without buying fruit....I did buy Hubby's Apples and Pears...but not the usual amount of fruit I buy weekly.
Before going I to the shops I put a grocery list together ( left it at home ) I was going through Tosco Reno's clean eating meals for ideas....was surprised how high most of the dishes where in ended up buying the types of food we like that have less sugar in them...

I am enjoying Oats for breakfast at the moment with a tsp of Peanut butter....and cooked in normal 3.5% milk....The sugar for all of these is just over 5g's
Today I bought Almond butter and Almond milk....lower is sugar, so going to cook my oats with Almond milk tomorrow morning - am hoping it tastes good as I bought 2L of Almond milk.

I stocked up on fish for my lunch meals.....Sardines, Tuna, Eyesock Salmon, and some other fish....evenings will be chicken and veggies( once a week we have Salmon )...Lunch time is Fish and salad. I have Rice Cakes with goats cheese and Greek yogurts for snacks
Will basically be eating the same thing most days.....I will have eggs one day for breakfast and Oats the next.....

Will log in my menu here as well as my group... doing well with drinking water....having 2 teas and only 1 coffee now...

The way I see it, isn't necessarily the way you see it.

Day 3 and all good

Our Christmas Eve dinner.....
Am told its fattening due to the cheese....but to me cheese is sugar free and fat is not my enemy!

Yesterday I asked a friend to take my measurements:-

R + L upper arm 32cm
Breast 93cm
Under Breast 84cm
Across Belly button 76cm
Hips 89cm
R + L upper leg 60cm

I'm going to hunt down my last measurements and compare....

I will be weighing in on Monday morning when the 30 Day 30g Sugar per day challenge begins.

I have stopped fruit while I go through the sugar detox - Today its Day 3...
I am doing the sugar detox before the sugar challenge begins as I want to start my training again and know while going through the detox period I lack this is me getting myself ready for Monday.

The way I see it, isn't necessarily the way you see it.

I'm back....and ready to go!!

I got back from Cape Town the 18 November and have not stopped eating and drinking since...
Oh I did have my days during the week where I was on track....sugar was good.
Then the last week of this year I just let go, totally let go
I ate whatever was going and had a glass or two of wine every night.
I woke up on New Years day with such fog brain.
I have been eating sugar, dairy and wheat.....( no aspartame foods ) and not drinking my lemon water or drinking enough be honest if it was 2 glasses a day it was good.
I did run 14km with hubby who was on leave last week.
I went to the gym 2x
Taking a break from teaching - we start again next week.

So that was then...
Today I took all my measurements
Yes, they up a bit....
Yesterday I went back to my usual way of eating.
Tracking my foods
Cutting out sugar and wheat...
This afternoon I am beginning to feel the fog brain feeling lift...

I ordered a book last night about sugar detoxing....will share with you in my next entry.

My group of ladies and I have a 30 days 30 grams of sugar challenge starting on we all preparing for this challenge.
Personally I want to be sugar free for a lifetime and not only 30days, but we have to start somewhere and this way we can all motivate each other....

Today was DAY 2 back on track for me.
