Well, I have to say I failed on day 6. I chose to have a small piece of my sons birthday cake. But other than that I am still on track. I felt that making a connection with my son was more important than my vanity. But I am now one week without Coke. So no caffeine and only 1 small piece of cake. I am finding that even though I am drinking tons of water the urine of still a bit darker than what I would count as hydrated but I am thinking that might be toxins are leaving my body as I am not stockpiling more on top of them.
Sleep is getting better as this was one of my main problems before starting this. I was also having some issues of really bad breath when I woke up during the night. Sometimes it would require me to brush my teeth at 3 am just so I could go back to sleep. Now that problem is gone. I don’t know if that is a direct result but it is a blessing that I am getting more sleep and better sleep. I am not needing to also take a nap halfway through the day.
Energy is starting to normalize and that is a wonderful feeling. I am not really sure how that can improve to a point where I have more. But I would like to do that. I am not doing a weight check until after the 30 days. I have my starting weight so I want to be able to look at it in the end as a whole of what has been the benefit to it all. So far I am proud of myself battling the drinking Coke is one of my hardest things. I think it has been made easier by drinking mint water as my tummy has not been so upset. I have also noticed that I am not feeling the need to snack.
Well that is it for sugar battle today. Please have a wonderful day everyone.
