Bad sugar, bad!

One of the changes I've made over the last month was to cut down drastically on the sugar in my diet. My body doesn't like sugar, and I know from previous experience eating like this that it's successful. For the most part, it's worked. I haven't completely eliminated carbs, but I only have them at breakfast time, and I've had next to no sweet things. My weight is slowly creeping down, but most importantly, I've been feeling better.

I kind of blew it today. I had an insane craving for a soda, so we ran up to the 7-11 to get a Big Gulp, but they were out of my diet soda. And instead of going to the cooler, I said screw it and went with regular Mountain Dew. Which I totally should not have done.

I'm not angry with myself. Just a little disappointed. But it's only one day, and I've got the rest of the week mapped out meal-wise. Tomorrow is roasted chicken with a coconut and lime glaze, a new recipe I'm really excited about. Fingers crossed it turns out as good as it looks.
