Happy Sugar Detox Ending!
If you’ve been following along you haven’t eaten sugar for 7 days now. Congrats for finishing! How do you feel? Notice a big difference? Did you learn something you weren’t expecting to? Watch it when you take your first bite of sugar. It may be waaaay sweeter than you think.
It’s always beneficial for me to cut something out of my diet even if I don’t eat it regularly. It helps me to examine what I’m eating and make very conscious decisions about the foods I choose. Find your lesson. There is one there. I learned that I need to be more cognizant of the things I grab as my go-to’s when I’m in a hurry. I read labels but at times I get lazy and just start trusting a certain brand to not add ingredients I don’t want to eat. I think it’s good to read up on certain brands so you have your go-to’s, but continue to read labels since you never know when they might reformulate or start using the latest supplement (sugar or otherwise) because someone said it was safe.
So now, I challenge you to take what you’ve learned and remember it daily when you make food choices. Working on our diets is a progression. I don’t know of anyone to wake up one morning and start eating exactly how they should. No, we make small changes, learn lessons, stumble, back-pedal, stall, make progress, fall off our plan, move forward, over and over again. But if we’re patient with ourselves and really want to reach a goal, we notice our progress and we celebrate it. Even if it’s small. Even if it’s not finishing the bowl of ice cream for the first time by leaving the very last small bite. Jump up and down and dance about it. Because those small changes snowball to become huge, life changers.
