I told you all I was going to keep you all updated during my sugar detox.
Today SUCKS y’all. Ohmyword.
Conversations with me today went something like this:
Random Co-Worker: “Hey Monica! I have something really important to talk to you about. Blah Blah Blah… <I stop listening> So, what do you think?!”
Me: “Did you say you had donuts?”
Random Co-Worker: “Um, no, I said that <I tune out again here>. You understand?”
Apparently no carbs makes me delirious, angry, sad, angry, repetitive, angry, and I lost all ability to focus and concentrate on anything.
MAKE THIS STOP! I even told my friend today: “I’m so sorry for the words I’ve spoken out of hunger.”
I’m not going to lie—I am damn miserable. Blah. RAWR!
Things I’ve noticed since I’ve stopped eating delicious carbs:
- My head hurts like whoa.
- Everyone is my enemy.
- No one has donuts. EVER.
- This is awful.
- My skin is slightly freaking out…in a bad way.
- I don’t look like Jessica Alba.
- Everything takes an extraordinary amount of effort.
- Coffee tastes awful.
- I just wanna lay down and sob.
Have I mentioned it’s only been like 36 hours? How do people do this for long periods of time? People tell me there will be a puppies, sunshine and rainbows feeling soon, and it cannot come soon enough. Tonight I’m having a drink with one of my dearest pals, and thank goodness she insists on picking me up to show off her new ride. Because honestly, if I have to drive myself anywhere, I’m going straight to the donuts.
Does this get easier? Is this worth it? Why do so many documentaries say wheat/gluten/carbs are poison? Is that true? But isn’t all this meat product equally bad for me? Maybe moderation is OK, and I should stop the madness.
Someone just pass me a freakin’ donut.
