Sugar Free Day 14

It's been 2 whole weeks since I last tasted sugar! The first week was pretty rough - headaches, tired, irritable. It was like an entire week of PMS. The second week - so much better!

I have more energy than I've had in years and I'm going to bed at night with that "good kind of tired" feeling; not exhausted because my body feels like it's failing me, tired because I am accomplishing so much during the day.

The second huge change is in my head. I was really beginning to think that I had adult ADD-seriously; I just couldn't focus and seemed to move from one project to the next without completing a thing. It was driving me nuts. The fuzzy feeling in my brain is gone. I am so on task, it's almost ridiculous.

So, I know I said that I am not going to have sugar until Christmas, but I've changed my mind. I am going to have a piece of pie on Thanksgiving, because I make a really, really good apple pie. But will I have a second piece after everyone leaves? No. Will I have another the following morning with my coffee? I will not. Because I really like the way I'm feeling.
