I am now working my way through the book. Its a little overwhelming. The sheer size of the printed material was surprising. I won't be implementing the plan til I am all the way through the book. Its a personality thing. I need all the pieces of information or I know I will become frustrated and unmotivated.
Today I had a reminder why I am doing this. First thing this morning I had an oatmeal, chocolate chunk cookie for breakfast. My twenty month old had one too along with his other breakfast. I know, terrible mom, right? But its hard to tell him no when I am doing it. I had two more later and he had one more before nap. He woke up from nap hyped to the ceiling, while I was dragging like I had been up all night and then some.
Thank you sugar monster for dragging mommy down and amping little guy up. That's exactly what I wanted for the afternoon. *insert scarcasm here*
This is my public declaration that the Sugar Monster's days are numbered in our house.
Stay tuned tomorrow as I shamelessly share my food journal for the day. I think it will be helpful to be honest about where I am before the plan so I can rejoice all the more about the grace God is going to give for the plan.
