Sugar Wars: Day 7

We have survived a week of this nonsense. My calorie consumption is down a ridiculous amount. I’d know exactly how much if I’d been keeping track before, but I roughed it out and it’s a lot. And I’m hungry, but I’ve recently learned to drink a couple of tisanes and the hot liquid makes some difference in the hunger, as does just having learned to tolerate being hungry better over the past year.

Having counted calories for a whole week is at least as much a triumph as staying off sugar for a week, so yay me.

I haven’t been suffering sugar withdrawals too much, except for yesterday’s general exhaustion. Dunno if that’s due to having been fortified by hot chocolates a few times, or if I was just better psychologically prepared than I have been in the past, or what, but so far not too awful. A couple hits of OH GOD I WANT COOKIES or GIVE ME THE ICE CREAM NOW but I’ve headed them off at the pass with a variety of tactics ranging from ignoring to drinking something to a miniature York peppermint patty (look, I’m not in this to torture myself. If a miniature peppermint patty gets me through the afternoon rather than having me break down & bake & eat a dozen cookies, that’s a friggin win, so) or an apple and cheese. Whatever works.

In other news, I have dreams of posting things that aren’t #SugarWars stuff. I know, I know. Dream on, crazy dreamer.
