Week 3 Review

28 DAYS OF NO SUGAR & NO CAFFEINE: PART 12

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.

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.
