I have decided that as part of my healthy eating, and the ‘lose 3 stones in 9 months’ campaign trail that I’ve set myself on, that I’m going to stop having unnecessary sugar in my diet. I suffer from Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), and sugar has never agreed with me. I had been eating healthily over the last two weeks, and I felt great, so I really felt like I’d turned a corner. But then some Krispy Kreme doughnuts and some other cakes made their way into the house (totally not my fault – honest!), and I honestly couldn’t tell you how many I ate. What I can tell you though, is how wretched I feel from the sugar rush and how I feel like someone has been using my kidneys as a football. I really won’t miss this feeling, and I used to put myself through this all the time, by eating healthy, then eating crap food, and so on, and so on, like some really rubbish rollercoaster I couldn’t get off.
But now, I want off the rollercoaster because I’ve had a tasty of ‘healthy’ and I like it. It certainly tastes better than a quick hit of chocolate, which then gives me a quick hit of feeling poop for ages.
So yes, goodbye to the sugar for me. Hurrah!
Tomorrow is weigh-in day, but I’m not hopeful after this weekend’s debauchery!
