Day 10 – Sucrose, yet so far….

Posted: August 6, 2015 in Shawzs 30 Day Sugar Sacking...

Day 10! 1/3 of the way there, this would typically where I would celebrate success, perhaps with a cheesecake or ice cream confection of some kind..but not this time!


Darn it…I said not this time!!

Nope, this time I’m going to reflect on some of the changes I’ve noticed in the last 10 days or so, and look forward to some other things to come. Its been 10 days, and I’ve already noticed a lot more energy and a better mood, which has meant my runs have improved again, my kids have been spending less time on “time outs” and less threats from my significant other for restraining orders!

One thing I have noticed though, is I seem to be a little more sensitive when I eat something a little more high glycemic. Like right now, I had some trail mix, which was something frugal Shawz thought was a great deal at the store, brought home, and noticed it was full of, were raisins full of sugar again??


Well thanks,guy…thanks for telling me now…

So right now, I’ve got what I can best describe as a racing heart and wicked freaking headache. Now don’t worry, I plan on doing absolutely nothing about this….after all, I’m a guy. But, it just goes to show that as your body start to adjust to not being bombarded with sugar all the time (which is in…absolutely….EVERYTHING!!) it will react the way it is supposed to when you do feed it high amount of sugar. As in, what the HELL are you doing to me?? 🙂

So, trail mix goes back in the cupboard,  and off to grab some almonds on the way to work. Hopefully, I’ll get a little more settled in a routine here soon, as opposed to constantly winging it. I guess, the most important part of all this is to keep learning, and to get constantly make better choices. Understanding that, as opposed to just throwing myself at this, might be the main thing to take out of today. 😀


And now…time to celebrate!
