This is a quick post to let you know how my conscious diet is going.
I am 8.8 pounds lighter (or 4k for the metric followers)
Sugar is no longer something I crave all the time. I have allowed a few little bites here and there but it’s not a principle to my everyday diet. I do not miss it like I thought I would.
I finally disconnected the association of waking up with a fresh cup of coffee. Thank you Folgers coffee for subliminally making me believe it is a must, tagline, “The best part of waking up is Folgers in your cup”. [see advertisement below for this Pop culture reference].
Since it is the Fall season, I realize I will be challenged with pumpkin pies and other delicious spicy comfort foods. I think I will explore some alternatives and bake them myself. I’m really enjoying experimenting with honey and coconut milk. I will say that Green juice is not an everyday thing for me. I do tend to have bread with cheese or yogurt with my homemade granola (made with no sugar!) when I don’t have time to chop 4 kinds of veggies with a few fruits. It’s just a bit difficult with a little one around.
