Ship’s Log–November 9th

PicShells

Today was the last day of my week-long sugar fast, and I am pleased with the results. I have had a bit more energy and a bit less water retention. It was not a miracle by any means, but it was another step in the right direction.

I allowed myself a small artisanal chocolate bar tonight to celebrate a week of success, but that doesn’t mean I am going to go back to chocolate every day. I rather liked the results of the fast, and so I am going to continue with minimal refined sugar in my diet as best I can. I am certainly going to keep the sugary treats restricted to just the weekends, and even then I hope to avoid going overboard.
