I won't say it was easy, because it wasn't, but I don't think it was quite as hard as I was expecting.
In a way, it was liberating. There was no stressing over whether or not to have dessert or feeling rotten about taking that second slice of cake. There was no counting calories or worrying about fat content. I just focused on one thing: No sugar.
Friday I woke up with a nasty headache and what felt like the flu. My whole body hurt, from the top of my head to the soles of my feet. I called my Mom for a pep talk and she encouraged me to drink plenty of water and just power through the detox. I felt slightly like a drug-addict calling for support to avoid a relapse.
We had a birthday party to attend on Sunday and that was pretty tough. I had a hamburger and hotdog with no condiments and no bread (they both have sugar in them!) and had to watch everyone eat yummy cake and my favorite kind of ice cream.
Here comes the good part.
And here's the thing, I didn't exercise. Peanut and I took a couple leisurely walks, but positively no cardio.
