I’m officially 23 Days without Sugar or Sweets:
I have to admit, this has been a difficult week.
Last night, I had a dream.
I dreamed that I was surrounded by Kit Kats
And I love kit kats. They are my favorite. With their texture and chocolate goodness.
I reached for the kit kats in my dream, but didn’t partake.
I wanted to, but didn’t.
My mind told me to, but I didn’t.
My Mental Health is Definitely being Effected
I do have some meditation techniques that have worked in the past.
I’ve got to do a better job of making them part of my daily routine.
For example, when I visualize sugar as something that is gross, poisonous, sickly sweet, or over indulgent, my mind slowly loses interest in it.
Here is a meditation that I can use:
My mind wants me to eat you,
To gorge myself in your indulgence,
You are witty with your temptation,
I feel your power,
You are over used and abused,
I feel sorry for you and have compassion on you,
But I cannot and do not want you anymore,
You are a food cheat,
Not a real sweet, like an apple,
So stare at me all you want,
I do not care.
