Sugarfree = no more headaches!

Just thought you might find it interesting to know that, after almost 2 weeks sugarfree, this former frequent user of advil hasn’t needed it at all! Well, actually, the first 3 days of the challenge I had a headache constantly — it’s like I was addicted to the stuff! But now I can gladly say that I haven’t had a headache since!!!
Now if I could just lay off the over use of exclamation points. 🙂
I’ve also noticed that I don’t have the typical midday slump as much as I used to. Sure, I still feel a little groggy around 3pm – 4pm, but before going sugarfree I couldn’t help but HAVE to nap. It was definately a big interruption in my day. Now I just keep going along.
I will admit — it was pretty difficult to keep it sugarfree over my fourth of july vacation. My family LOVES to eat out and, unfortunately, seems to always make a few stops at McDonalds. You know the ONLY sugar free thing they have is a side salad? The bigger salads are full of sugar in the chicken and the cheese :(. But, I brought some almonds and apples to add…. it really wasn’t so bad, and in the long run I’m so glad I didn’t break down. It’s hard to know when you’re at a restaurant what exactly is in your food, but I tried to choose the least sugary-sounding options.
To anyone debating upon going sugar free…. I recommend.
