I made it through August Sugar Free (According to these Sugar Broke guidelines).
I’m going to get to 100 Days. I’ve tried many times and failed. This time it feels a little different.
Over the weekend my 6 year old boy asked me if I’d take him and a friend to Krispy Kreme.
Usually Krispy Kreme is very triggering for me. I crave doughnuts. I love them. They love me. We just don’t do well together. The sights, the smells, it is all so enticingly sweet, so tantalizingly seductive.
But, I had to test myself. I can’t live in a cave.
So, I relented. And with a smile on my face. I was going to make it a positive experience, not a drudgery.
And it was. I stared the donuts in the face and wasn’t anxious. I enjoyed window shopping and helping the boys pick out their favorite ones. I was surprised when my boy chose the original glazed. How boring is that? I’m all about the exciting sprinkles, syrup filled, flavor explosion.
His friend picked an oreo donut:
Anyways, I’m happy where I’m trending. It seems positive. I feel healthier. Anxiety levels are down and peaceful enjoyment is up.
