So, I have a confession to make: I. Am. An. Addict. Whew! That was not easy to say! It’s not something I wanted to confess, but we all know the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem. The thing is, my addiction is quite common, but one most people are in denial about. I’m not addicted to drugs or alcohol. I don’t smoke. I don’t pop pills. My addiction is to… SUGAR- anything ooey, gooey, chocolatey, and sweet!
I’ve suffered from this addiction most of my life. I crave sweets all day, every day. What most people call a sweet tooth, I call an obsession, and a personal struggle with instant gratification. I believe that everything is ok in moderation, but I have had sugar overload for too long and it’s time for me to make a change.
For the next few weeks, I will be completing the Whole30 program. Whole30 is a meal plan where you completely eliminate sugar, dairy, grains, and legumes in order to heal and recover the body from the effects that these things can cause.
I chose to do this because I need help. My goal is to reset my body and restart my fitness journey. I already know that it’s not going to be easy and I’m prepared to go through withdrawal. But, I’m strong and I know that in the end, I’ll have the victory!
It’s been said that it takes at least 21 days to break a bad habit. Well, I’m giving myself 30 days to get it together! I can’t wait to be sugar-free and happy 😊
This is going to be an interesting (and sometimes emotional) journey. I decided to write about in order to hold myself accountable. I’ll be back in 30 days to let you all know how well I did and talk about my results. Until then, keep me in prayer. I’m gonna need lots of it! With love always,
