Earlier this week, I went off of “bad sugar.” That meant no more cookies, cake, brownies, ice cream, etc. I had headaches, nausea, mood swings, fatigue, etc. It’s been a week now, and I’m doing better.
Today, I haven’t been terribly hungry, and my cravings have been minimal. Earlier this week, I thought that I would throw in the towel with the sugar thing, but I’m glad I stuck it out. I still wonder how I’ll be 3 weeks, 4 weeks, 2 months, etc. from now. We’ll just have to wait and see.
I discovered and purchased no-sugar-added hot cocoa, sugar-free dark chocolate pudding, and no-sugar-added light ice cream. I’m surprised that I haven’t gone completely crazy and eaten them all. Still, they’re available if I need them.
I took a few days off jogging and went out again today. I actually felt a bit like a jogger. I jogged 5 minutes, and then did 3 min jogs with 1 min walking rests, until I had 30 minutes of exercise completed. Then, I walked 30 minutes.
In the kitchen: This morning, after jogging, I went to my garden, cut some green onions, and used them in my Egg Beaters omlette. I made a loaf of bread and froze half of it for later in the week. I also used leftover rotisserie chicken to make chicken noodle soup (which is almost gone, since we’re eating it for lunch and dinner).
Sewing: In regards to sewing all of those blouses, I pressed the necklines, finished hems on 3 of the blouses, and have already pinned one blouse to it’s neckline. After I serge that neckline, I’ll need to try on the blouse to get the elastic in the wrists the correct length before sewing the elastic ends together and closing the casing. Then, that blouse will be finished. I watched Journey to the Center of the Earth while working on the blouses. The movie was okay, but I thought that Brendan Frasier yelled for most of it (in fear, yelling while running/being chased/falling, etc.).
On a happy note, my friends and I acquired tickets to my city’s premiere of Twilight!! Woo-hoo!!
