Nine days. You guys, I made it nine whole days sugar-free! Holy cow!
This last week and a half of eating clean and doing regular workouts has me feeling sometimes sore and cranky -but mostly amazing- and weighing 2 lbs. less. Granted, that's not a ton of weight (I know some of the Revolt girls lost 7 or 8 lbs last week) but for somebody who has trouble losing an ounce it feels like a ton, and I'm that much closer to my goal.
But today, oh today. Not only is it a "rest day," aka. a break from the usual sweat-sesh, but today is also my first "cheat day" where I get to eat whatever I want. Can you guess what that might be?? Let me tell you, I've been counting the hours. The minutes.
I started the day with a healthy breakfast and managed a low-carb lunch as well. But as soon as I finished the last bite of chicken I was on my stock of Reese's and Cadbury mini eggs like a fly on....well, you get the picture. I made it though one peanut butter cup and was halfway through my second when I started feeling...not so good. Kind of bad, actually. But I am not a quitter so that didn't stop me from downing a huge handful of the Cadbury eggs. (Great timing btw, since I was finally watching the Bachelor finale. There's nothing like ugly-crying while stuffing your face with chocolate. And seriously? I never liked Lindsay, but she handled that breakup like a champ.)
So, now I'm sitting here high on sugar, barely able to move, and wondering how I'm going to feel after eating out with my in-laws tonight. Because with the in-laws, dinner isn't dinner unless it includes lots of bread, appetizers, dessert and one or several bottles of wine. I may be in a coma by bedtime.
At least it will be a happy, possibly drunk coma.
