DAY 2 of the no-sugar challenge

Monday, April 18, 2011

Well, it wasn't as easy as the first day, but I did it, more or less.

I was absolutely beyond exhaustion Sunday. Disappointing, since I wanted to get a few little things done then to sorta lighten up the workload for Monday morning, always a good strategy when you work for yourself. Anyway, that wasn't happening. I slept half the day. And I'm one of these people who normally CANNOT sleep in the middle of the day, unless I'm sick. SO I guess I needed the rest.

In the afternoon, I felt so drained I gave in to temptation and ate a bunch of Wheat Thins. I'm 'fessing up here.

Granted, it's not the worst thing in the world, but still, 4 g of sugar per serving so they were technically off-limits.

I'm realizing the blessed reprieve a was somehow granted from my fibromyalgia is definitely over, and I am getting more and more of these "pooped" spells, with the muscle and joint pain and all the other fun stuff that goes with it.

I am not taking this lying down; I went to see my Dr., and she is ordering a full battery of tests to see what is going on with me. We will get to the bottom of this, no doubt.

I am realizing most of the time I overeat it's to get energy somehow. When you can literally barely move that (especially sweet) food looks awful good. Once I get this illness under control again, I will again be too busy to eat.

    That's quite a challenge when you're dealing with fibro fatigue and pain . . . glad you've got a doctor who is working with you to figure out what's best . . .

    Be sure you get plenty of protein in to keep your energy level up. I wish I could sleep that well.

    I love Wheat Thins but have not had any in years.

    I hope you feel better soon.
