Time to get more serious! Actually, I have to say that despite eating bite-sized cookies all week, I really didn’t have anything super sweet. In fact, when I ate some plain blueberries I couldn’t believe how sweet they tasted! Really, almost like candy. The fact of the matter is I had no refined sugars or maple syrup, and only honey and Stevia in minute amounts. Just tonight I was reading that one should limit their consumption of sugar (palm sugar, Stevia, sucanat, honey, maple syrup only) to a mere 3T a day OR several pieces of fruit. Last week I was most definitely within those limits so week one wasn’t really so bad; I need to stop beating myself up over it. This hasn’t been too hard so I am going to extend this good eating for the rest of the month –and not allow any alcohol!! I also need to factor in exercise more prominently. One before dinner walk is not exercise! lol However, I also read that if you have adrenal fatigue (and I seem to have many symptoms of this), strenuous exercise is not recommended. In fact, going for walks is the best exercise until they start healing. I do have tennis tomorrow, which I will do, but I gotta admit, it is thoroughly exhausting. Getting a 1:1 lesson for an hour means I am the one doing all the running around the court. I love that I am making such improvement to my game but I get home and literally collapse in a heap on the floor. It’s rough and now I know why. But I can and will suck it up once or twice a week and the rest of the time stick to walks for now.
Snack – none
