I could not understand why oh why I was so HUNGRY last night! Then it hit me. I had eaten a lot of carbs sprinkled some sugar in there last week. Typically my diet is somewhere between Keto and Low Carb. Oh Geez, sugar is the worst. So I decided to do an egg fast to help me ease off the sugar. Last night I had the cravings for it.
As I sat in my chair I decided I would pluck my eyebrows to make myself feel prettier. I was feeling old last night. BTW I do not always feel that way. I was hankering something sweet. I was listening to my body. Am I hungry? Am I thirsty? Do I really want to eat at 9 pm or do I want to go to bed? Ok, do something for a half an hour and see if I am really hungry. Ok, I did do something I went to go find my tweezers and my magnifying mirror. Oh my, that closet is a mess. I spent an hour cleaning out the closet. Maybe closer to 90 minutes. I filled a trashbag and a small barrel with recyclables. Found my tweezers and my mirror and then plucked my eyebrows.
The craving passed. I was not hungry. I skipped the sugar and truly feel better for it.
Interesting movie that changed my whole outlook on Sugar.
Sugar Coated is the name of the documentary
Amazing documentary that is on Netflix and you might even be able to watch it off Youtube.
Cravings will come and go and sometimes I will cave into them because I am human.
My body needs me to care for it.
