I signed up for a six week make over with One to 1 Fitness in Red Deer. I am in a class with ten other people and I am on a new meal plan. We are competing against each other for a chance to win a 3 month membership to the gym with a personal trainer. It's a pretty cool prize but I don't know that I am in it for the prize per se.
My motivation is coming from a desire to look my best and to feel my best. Neither of which I am feeling today. I am definitely going to struggle with this challenge, and the biggest struggle is going to be the eating component of this challenge.
Seriously, I love food, and I especially love sugar. So what do you think my meal plans consist of? Yup, no sugar, good carbohydrates and proteins and some fats, but ZERO sugar. It is a struggle already.
Yesterday, I had zero sugar in my diet, except for the naturally occurring sugar from the fruits that I ate and in the fruit juice I drank. But other than that there was no sugar, and no artificial sweetener either. Yesterday, I thought I was going to die.
I made it until 4:30 and then I thought I was going to die. I was nauseous, I had the worst headache in years, and I didn't have my full mental capacities with me. I was detoxing or getting the flu. But as I drove home from Basketball practice, everything got worse, I inhaled an orange on my way home and that seemed to appease the sugar beast within me for 30 minutes, enough time so that I could concentrate on the road, but I really shouldn't have been driving in my condition. I was lethargic as well and just wanted to lay down to die.
I got home and ate supper, if you can call a 1/4 cup of potatoes, and 1/4 cup of corn, that my youngest son helped me eat a supper. Oh and one chicken wing. Then I bathed my child and set him up to eat his bed time snack. I then laid on my couch and watched Grey's Anatomy. After Grey's at 8:00 I went to bed, I literally crawled into my bed attempted to read a book, but failed miserably, so I just laid down and I was out for the count.
I woke up this morning with a minor head ache, not as debilitating as yesterday's headache but it's still there twitching behind my eyes. I am subbing today and I have a Basketball tournament all weekend so it's going to be interesting how this new meal plan plays out. Hopefully, the sugar monster will be beaten and I can get on with not feeling like a detoxing drug addict soon!!!
Monday is my next workout so look out world, here I come!!!
