Sugar detox, day two

I have this pair of jeans in my closet that have has been taunting me for several weeks now. Skinny jeans from Ann Taylor. They aren't my favorite item of clothing or anything, but for some reason I have been obsessed with fitting into them. I've been trying and trying and trying, but no luck. Until today! I stepped into the jeans and lo and behold ... they fit! They don't look perfect, that's for sure. But they zip easily and with the right top no one would ever know that I still have some baby weight hanging around.

This was all the motivation I needed this morning. I woke up I was craving sugar like mad and wondered how on earth I would survive the next 20 days. As soon as I put on the jeans, though, I was able to visualize myself successfully completing all 21 days of the detox with zero deviation. My body still wanted the sugar, but my mind was determined to beat the temptation. I want to wear all of my pre-pregnancy clothes again, and if getting there means 21 days or 41 days or even more without sugar, well, bring it on.

  1. I am so happy for you! I had a baby a month ago and I am trying hard to stick to paleo. I have been fighting sugar cravings everday. I hope when I start getting better sleep I will have the strength to kick it for good.... You can do it.

  2. Thank you, Lisa! And congratulations! The fist six weeks were particularly challenging for me, but as soon as she started sleeping for long stretches at night everything became easier (including making healthier food choices).
