Happy Tuesday! My birthday is over and my son has went back to Alaska. I am on day 5 of no sugar again, and I have missed writing! The vacation was excellent! Great time spent with my son. I had not seen him in almost eight years! He moved to Alaska a teenager and was a young man – it was so surreal! I loved spending time with him. Although, a week wasn’t long enough! I am grateful for the time we did spend together. The picture below was taken on my birthday with my son and my awesome husband!
Now, for the slip on my birthday, I wouldn’t call it a slip. It was a simple choice I made. I sat at the table at the restaurant, and decided that I would have some dessert in celebration of my birthday. Dessert made with refined sugar and all kinds of other bad stuff. I felt confident that I would not go on a sugar binge afterwards and had four bites of it. I really wasn’t impressed with it, it was good, however it wasn’t what you would expect. So, I will start over and on Holidays continue to bake my sugar free items and enjoy them.
I do believe that this lifestyle has been ingrained in me and I am happy with it! I think I needed to test myself. I am not disappointed in myself, quite the opposite. I am happy that I did it. My faith in myself and my decisions are stronger now. It’s done and I believe that I can live refined sugar free because of it.
I am going to enjoy the rest of May sugar free and this week I celebrate my four year wedding anniversary! I will find a recipe that will be amazing AND sugar free and treat myself.
If you are in this journey with me, I hope that you stay inspired and will continue on!
