Actually it does feel good not to be a slave to sugar right now.
Yesterday was pretty great. I knew days 2-4 would be the hardest. And
while I was fine this morning, by late afternoon today I could feel
the chemical shift in my brain and body.
"To get out you must go through." I read that quote yesterday either
in Karly's book or Vickie's blog or somewhere. My detoxing brain can't
remember and after a 5 minute search gives up.
At any rate, I can't get out of the sugar without first going through detox.
I wish I was in a fancy detox spa. But I'm not. Real life is my only
In her book Karly says to detox during a non stressful time. Which I
agree with and wish I could adhere to.
But I don't know that I'll ever have a non stressful time in my life.
Heck, compared to when my dad was sick, this IS a non stressful time.
And honestly, the alternative--giving my life over to sugar addiction
and all the misery that goes with it--isn't an option and won't make
me feel any better. So I guess it's all good.
I am camped out in my relaxing front room reading more of her book.
I'm not craving sugar, which is a relief.
I just feel like I got hit by a truck.
