Refined mail ru in love dating Cam 2 cam sexchat
A few years ago, my husband decided to cut refined sugar out of his diet. Big, angry, cranky, wanted to kick and scream, MAD.
And I’ve got to be honest with you, when he did it, I was mad. Now, I realize that an appropriate response would have been to be impressed, supportive, proud or inspired, but I felt none of those things.
He has discipline and will power that I never believed I could possess. Then you probably get how important sweets are in my life, and how when all else fails.
Now, this space is about reality, and not just an idealized version of who I want to be.
Because I doubted my own ability for restraint, I resented that it came so easily to him. So the idea of giving that up scared the daylights out of me. I was worried that I would feel deprived, and that isn’t something I was willing to entertain.
But truth be told, his sugar-free period lasted around 6 months, and he then went back to his normal ways. I got to a point where I felt like something had to give, and I had to put my health as a higher priority.
And after two, I could comfortably turn down cake at a birthday party. Especially when it’s homemade with 7 rainbow colored layers? I felt more in control of my cravings, my skin was dramatically different, I was losing weight, I was sleeping better, and I had more energy.
No fancy supplements or crazy diets, just attention to what I did and did not eat. Did you know that there’s sugar in tortilla chips, salsa, almost every bottled dressing, red pepper hummus, and most other packaged products? But for a good 6 or 7 weeks I did my best to avoid it, and I felt fantastic.
