Confessions of a Blogaholic – Give Me Some Sugar

I’ve done the 21 day sugar detox. The tag line for my blog includes eating right. I eat vegetables most of the day. But at the end of the day, I am still addicted to sugar.
Sugar addiction is real. Like any other bad habit, it’s not easy to beat. There are times in the month and times of my life when I just need some sugar.
When I’m busy, I can go without eating real food as long as I have some candy. And when I’m stressed or just mentally consumed, candy helps.
Which is how this picture came about.

Lest you think I am proud of this, let me declare I am not. I write my story here for transparency, just so you know I am not just sitting around eating vegetables and judging you because you’re not. We all have a bad habit but we also should all be trying to get better.
It might be time for me to do another round of 21 day sugar detox. Janae who writes at Hungry Runner Girl got me thinking about it when she declared a couple days ago that she’s going on a 21 day sugar detox and I wondered how many of us would last 3 weeks on a stringent sugar-free plan. And that includes chocolate, sugar in the morning coffee/ tea or soda with lunch. I am not alone, I know. But that’s not what this is about. I am not trying to point fingers at anyone.
What I am doing is pulling back the curtains and announcing.

I’m Karen and I love sugar.

That’s my confession this week. Sometimes, I eat way more sugar than I should but I’m trying to cut down. I really am. Maybe when the trip is past and my life goes back to normal, I can do the 3 week plan again and really stick with it this time. I know there are others like me and even though we don’t always get it right, let’s all try not to judge and instead, just do what we know we should.

  1. Ugh I love sugar (a little too much) as well. I did the Whole 30 Challenge this past March/April, but once I finished, sugary treats started trickling back into my diet- yet dairy & grains, not so much.
    I’m impressed by people that don’t have a sweet tooth & wish I could tone mine down for good!

      Same here. Maybe we need to make it a continuous challenge. Seems like a month should be enough time to break a habit but maybe it’s the competition that keeps us motivated.

    I feel you on the sugar! I have been trying to do a sugar detox but after day 3 I was eating a big ice cream cone! LOL. I researched some more and learned that I should have weaned myself off of it slowly and not going cold turkey. I will attempt to do the detox again and see how it goes.

    Thanks for linkin’ up!!

      We need lots of planning and discipline to keep up with the sugar detox. And, forgiveness, when an ice cream cone or bag of skittles presents itself 🙂 thanks for sharing

    Sugar is so addictive! It is definitely hard to kick that habit.

      Tell me about it. Sometimes, I feel like I don’t even want to try 😦
