Day Two Sugar Detox - Lonely Tea Cup and a Bright Side

Day two of sugar detox. Okay, so I don't really eat that much sugar on a daily basis. Unless it's a special occassion or I dare to bake, super obvious sweet things aren't around to eat. But there is an exception...

Double Dark Chocolate Zone Bars.

My favorite breakfast is a thing of the past.

My tea cup is lonely. And really, it's a little bitter without the sweet chocolate.

I'm shocked at how much I miss those darn bars.

But I must have been getting more sugar somewhere to be so grouchy giving it up these past two days. I guess a bite of my kids treat here and a granola bar there really add up.

My husband is annoyed with me, I can tell. He can't understand why I'm so grouchy (I'm a total b*&#@ tonight). I warned him but he must not have believed that i'd be tough to live with (ha!). He must not have known about my little zone problem.

Hopefully my sweetness will come back soon, even if i'm sugar free*

* I am not planning on going completely sugar free for the rest of my life. In case you catch me nibbling on a free sample at Costco next month, I thought I should let you know. I'm just getting it out of my system and then I plan to be mindful about eating sugar in the future. I am being a student of my body at this point, trying to see what plays a role in my energy and mood level. :)

But on the BRIGHT SIDE...

I took these photos at bedtime tonight. My husband makes such a great daddy for little girls! He let's them do his hair in their "beauty shop", and even lets them put fairy wings on him. I saw this and ran to grab my camera, before he could protest. :)


  1. Congrats on your sugar detox. Maybe I should join you. I am crazy about sugar and know that I should control myself. I've tried the protein-only diets and I do OK for about a week. Then I need M-O-R-E! Somthing that always helped me during those times was gum. Chew a piece (sugar free, of course)...it helps with the cravings.

  2. I've been feeling like I need a sugar detox lately too!!

    Hope your Sweetness comes back to you. ;)

    Cute pictures of your husband playing with those cute little fairies of yours.

  3. So glad he sported the crown at the end. Perfect. Hang in there, girl. Can't wait to see you next week... :)

  4. Sugar detox is HARD. Good for you.
    And, Oh My, what a good Hubby you have.

  5. super cute photos of your hubby with the fairy wings!
    Good job, way to stay at it!

  6. Oh, I love your husband!

    Um... let me rephrase that. Very carefully.

    I love how wonderful a daddy he is with your girls. It reminds me of my father, who was big and tough and a manly man in all ways -- except when I needed someone to play with me. Or when I needed saving from some evil spider or something horrendous like that. Then, I could always rely on him to save the day. I think your daughters are always going to feel as loved as I did.
