Oh, I can't believe we're already half way through the month of January and I'm having to confess that I need to get back on the wagon.
During the holidays I went off my Primal diet figuring that it wouldn't be that hard getting back on after. Oh how wrong I was!! I have struggled trying to get back off sugar since then. I can't believe how addicted I am to the stuff. I had my husband hide the chocolate covered asai berries that were in my food storage and I've tried to throw out the other goodies in the house. I do okay for a day, but then I get the headaches (dye off symptoms) and my heck I give right back in. Yesterday I even searched the house for chocolate chips. I felt so like a child and out of control of my life. So as of this moment I am taking my life back and will not go back.
I felt so good prior to the holidays. I lost 15 pounds. My sinuses were clear. My skin looked beautiful and I felt good. I had energy. Now I'm reduced to a slug-type existence and I refuse to live like this anymore. I want to be happy and healthy and feel wonderful. I may not be model thin, but I can live with that as long as I have energy and know that the things I'm putting in my body are healthy and won't hurt me any longer.
On a better note, I have been using coconut oil as my moisturizer. I've made my own oil cleanser and my skin is looking good. I am even going to try to make my own mascara later this week. I will post later if this works.
Have a wonderful week and remember ~ It's a beautiful day, life is good!
