BUT, then I came home. I had been good for so long. My body was feeling great. I was down a few sizes. I wanted to add in some fruit. So I did. When I added the fruit back into my diet I gained a few pounds but nothing major. I felt good and continued eating paleo/primal and exercising 5-6 days a week. (Mix of weights and cardio)
Then one day I was at whole foods and it as free sample day. They were handing out samples of a dried fruit blend and I really wanted it. So I had some. Then I was faced with chocolate chip cookies. I know this was a HUGE error in judgement on my part but they smelled amazing. I was hungry. I wanted one really badly. I figured since it was a small one and I wasn't buying them I could have a little treat. WRONG. I am a sugar addict. I can not have just little bit. It is like an alcoholic taking one small shot. Or a cocaine addict taking one small bump. I can not have pressed sugar. Even the dried fruit was a huge mistake for me. As I ate the cookie I almost could feel the sugar coursing through my veins. It tasted amazing and I felt amazing. I checked out and left whole foods to head home and put away my groceries. I had purchased blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, apples, chicken, fish, eggs, veggies, almonds…ect. I had plenty of food and should have started cooking my dinner. All I could think about was COOKIES! I decided to eat some berries hoping that it may help. Then I ate some almonds. Although I was no longer hungry I still wanted cookies. More than I had since I started the egg fast. It was horrible. I took a shower, changed into my pjs. Did some work on the computer. I STILL WANTED COOKIES. I drank some tea. I laid down in my bed. I tossed, and turned and rationalized. I work so hard. I already ate a cookie and I want more. If I eat a couple tonight I can just get back to paleo/primal tomorrow. It was 11pm. I got up, put on clothes, drove to the store and bought cookies. I then ate them all. 13 chocolate chip cookies in 10 mins and went to bed. The next day sugar cravings were back in full force. It took me SOOOOO much effort to get rid of time and with one fall I was back in the sugar cycle nightmare. The next few months have been cycles of trying really hard but failing over and over again. This took a psychological and physical toll. I got depressed and gave up.
BUT, now I am back here. I am on day 4 of my eggs. I have been off sugar for 3 days. This is my longest stretch since I messed up. Trying like hell to stay off the sugar for life.
