Well, some progress, some regression.
Let’s start with the positives:
The other day, there was birthday cake in the fridge. (Birthday cake doesn’t count as part of my sugar free choices because who wants to be THAT person at a party, right?)
I decided I would have a piece for breakfast (ok, not so great I’ll admit, but I’m getting to the good bit!)
Warmed chocolate fudge cake – used to be one of my favourites. So I grabbed a fork, only to find that it was far too sweet! So much so that I put half of my slice in the bin!
Also, I’ve also sometimes able to look at myself in the mirror recently and think I’m looking better, (from the front at least – the side is still a disaster!)
So that’s great, but there have been cons too:
I haven’t gone for a run for the last few Sundays.
I’m not doing so well as I was at being strick with myself.
Added to that, whilst I’m trying hard to be proud and impressed, the fact my boyfriend has managed to drop an incredible 8kgs since stopping sugar has made me feel very jealous. He didn’t hate the way he looked before, whilst I did/do and currently feel very trapped inside my skin.
With exam season beginning to hit in earnest, I think that the best I can do is just try to tighten up on being stricter with being sugar free. Once the exams are over, I’ve got to find the money from somewhere so that I can get in the gym. I’d like to try my hand at weight training.
In the meantime, any encouragement to boost me out of my current slump would be lovingly and gratefully received!
Until next time,
