This second week of no sugar and no caffeine my goal was to read God’s Word for at least 10 minutes each day. That again didn’t happen. I read my Bible 3 days this past week for about 10 minutes.
I had determined that I would read my Bible after dropping my son off at daycare and that got derailed by other things. Twice I used that time to go grocery shopping, other days I started work a little early, and once I actually took a nap.
I did maintain no sugar and no caffeine. On Thursday this past week we had a company picnic and I think I managed to stay Paleo with no sugar. It’s difficult to know what’s in every ingredient though, and I think something my body doesn’t like may have slipped in because my stomach was cramping for a bit after. I ate a hamburger (no bun) with mustard and lettuce, some salad, and a small piece of unseasoned chicken.
Here’s a quick review of the week and what I ate. Again, this isn’t comprehensive since I didn’t include all of the snacks I ate each day but it’s pretty close.
Scrambled eggs with canned pumpkin and smoked salmon, bacon
Banana with almond butter/coconut butter and macadamia nuts Pumpkin Pancakes from Practical Paleo
Salad with broccoli slaw, smoked salmon, radishes, and garlic sauce
Scrambled eggs with butternut squash and canned salmon
Hamburger (no bun) with mustard and lettuce, some salad, unseasoned chicken (not pictured)
Original Kombucha (1/2 bottle, 8 ounces)
Salad with canned salmon, broccoli, and garlic sauce Sugar Detox Pumpkin Cake in a Mug
For the final week of no sugar and no caffeine my goal will be to pray and read my Bible whenever I feel cravings. I expect this will be the hardest week since I’m nearing the end and it’s nearing that time of the month where I usually eat a ridiculous amount of dark chocolate.
