It’s the fourth day of sugar-free month. Yesterday I figured out that if I didn’t quit drinking Coffee Mate that I was not truly living sugar-free. Yes, corn syrup solids are sugar. Who knew? You can’t really taste the sugar in it if you are putting extra sugar in your coffee at the same time. We got some heavy cream yesterday to do the duty of the dairy-free cream without the corn syrup.
Breakfast today was the same as the rest, food without fuss. Sleep last night was restless, I was very near waking all night. Still no return of desert mouth, sinuses may be healing themselves as I starve the bugs that were living there of their sugary diet. At least so I hope.
Dinner last night was leftover pizza soup over spaghetti squash ‘noodles’, thrice-tossed salad with mayo, and cottage cheese.
By last night I felt achy all over, with pain in my forearms, the tingling was still all over my body, felt a bit tired and lethargic. I think that it’s probably all the withdrawal symptoms that addicts must get through to be free of their chemical of choice. Today will be better.
