I mean it wasn't a piece of cake (ha!) but it was definitely not as difficult as I thought it would be. I have always considered myself to be addicted to sugar, but I found the week without processed sugar was great. I felt better physically and emotionally. It's definitely a positive change.
I don't think this means I am going to give up processed sugar forever. At least, I am not ready to say that now, but the sugar-free week got me thinking: could I do this longer? And so, I am ready to say that for the next 30 days, I will be sugar-free. (This means, my only "sweets" will be fruit.)
I look forward to reporting on my progress and discoveries. If you're interested in joining me, let me know! These kinds of adventures are always more fun with a buddy! July 21 will be here before we know it.
