Sugar Cleanse Day 4

Day 4 of the sugar cleanse and still going strong!! The 2nd day was the hardest, but I feel like I am in a good groove now. The most difficult part has been finding quick and easy things on the go that are okay. And I am shocked at how many things have sugar in them!! I have been snacking on cheese, almonds and plain greek yogurt, plus strawberries and raspberries. I caved today and had a coconut water. That counts as natural sugar right? Whole grain toast and almond butter has been a go-to lunch as well as turkey and cheese roll ups.

Dinner has been tricky but I've had shredded chicken from the crockpot with roasted veggies mixed in as well as a chicken and veg stir fry. I think we are going to grill tonight. Hopefully I will have more food related posts for you soon, I am really slacking in the kitchen lately!

I was happy that I was able to stick to the cleanse yesterday during a beach day, but it was hard to resist gelato!! This weekend will be tough, but I will keep reminding myself that it is only 10 days. I usually feel like treating yourself here and there is the best way to stick with good eating in the long run and will continue to subscribe to that philosophy! Thankfully I have yoga teacher training all weekend so it will be much easier to be good.

And here are some beach pics!

I had a headache on day 2 and that's the only thing i can point to as a reason. I'm enjoying the cleanse though! I messed up yesterday by having sugarless gum and a diet coke because i fogot. :( but everyone else was snacking on reeses pieces so i cut myself some slack.

i'm feeling great though! definitely more in control at night and for me that was the biggest thing. thanks for encouraging me to do this with you!!

I am glad you are feeling good and enjoying it!! If nothing else, it is opening my eyes to changes I need to make in my diet for the long run.

And dont worry about the diet coke. I havent been perfect either :)

See you soon!!
