i am officially addicted to sugar. it seriously is like a drug. i crave it. i eat it. and then i crash and feel like poo. the only enjoyable part of eating sweets for me is the first bite, but regardless of how bad it makes me feel, i could polish off a cake all by myself. it's an issue. and the craziest part? i don't even like it that much. after i've eaten 3 cupcakes, 5 cookies, whatever, i get this nasty aftertaste in my mouth.
it's bad for my baby (i nurse). it's bad for my waistline. it's wreaks havoc on my energy levels.
i used to be very disciplined about eating sweets until i got pregnant. the one time in my life when it matters more than anything what i'm putting into my body and that's the time i choose to eat sweets on a daily basis. mama of the year award right here!
the biggest issue here is my health. i have a long history of diabetes in my family so i know this is something i need to get under control and SOON.
so starting today, i am giving it up. i believe in moderation but i have got to detox before i can enjoy an occasional dessert here and there. for now, i am giving up sweets until july 1. after that, i will reassess to see if i can responsibly enjoy a dessert every once in a while.
so how about you? is there anything in your diet that you know isn't making you feel your best?
oh, and because this song is so fitting...
