OK, so that title really has nothing to do with this post except that it continues the Lord of the Rings battle speeches theme, and that’s OK with me. Here we are, closing out day two without processed sugar. That’s right, day two. I made it through two whole days. This is epic, I tell you. Already the cravings are gone and my “Sugar? Meh.” attitude has increased tenfold.
It’s weird how that happens – how something just clicks and an attitude can do a complete 180. I’m grateful for it, but its explanation eludes me. I think maybe I just realized I need to think about myself. To be just selfish enough that I realize if I’m not at 100% functionality, then I’m not as good as I can be for others. When I’m tired and crashing from a sugar high, I’m not as productive and thoughtful as when I’m healthy, exercising, and eating well. It’s just speculation, really, but who knows. I could be right.
I could also be wrong and it’s 100% biological, and my brain finally told the rest of me “ENOUGH! I NEED GLUCOSE, BUT THAT’S ENOUGH FOR TWENTY BRAINS! GIVE ME A CHANCE TO DIGEST, WOMAN!”
If my brain could talk, that’s what it’d say. Well, what it used to say. Hopefully soon it’ll be figuring out the future value of an annuity due after 12% interest compounded annually for 20 years without having to look at the book. I know, my dreams are small. 😛
So, back to my initial point – I am claiming VICTORY over these last two days of sugar-free-ness.
Here’s praying for tomorrow. One day at a time.
God bless and good health.
Romans 8:31-32 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?
