An update

I want to keep this short today.

In the last two days, I've faltered in my sugar-free challenge. But, I am not going to let this get me down. In fact, I learned some really great lessons:

1. I feel MUCH better physically when I eat natural foods. It sounds so simple, but I can tell you that it is much more challenging than it seems...sadly, natural food can be hard to come by. Especially when you're in a rush or working 12 hour days and not taking proper care of yourself.

2. I feel MUCH, MUCH better emotionally when I skip refined sugar all together. Even when I think I am going to enjoy the sweet, I don't. Sugar really messes with my head. Who knows if this will ever change, but the way I feel almost immediately after eating refined sugar simply doesn't make it worth it.

3. I really can do anything I set my mind to. Getting up after a fall is the first step. And one I know well. Tomorrow, I'll be back on track.
