Yesterday was Day 1 of No Sugar.
I know I say I’m cutting sugar at least once a month, but I NEEEEED to do it!
I’m taking it one day at a time. I am totally addicted to sugar. I let it boss me around.
Sugar is such a jerk.
Anyone else want to take on this challenge with me?
Getting it out of my system over the next couple of weeks will be the hardest part. I can do it! I’ve done it before. I’ve gone a lot longer without sugar and felt A LOT better!
I’m thinking if I make it an actual “challenge” with a start and end date, I’ll mentally lock in.
So, here we go. Day Two.
I started the day with a 3 mile run and a 2 mile walk with the girls.
After getting everyone going around here, I headed out to Pilates.
I was craving some soup, so I hit up the store for some groceries and headed home.
I was going to make this soup using turkey kielbasa, but then remembered I had some ground turkey that needed to be cooked. So, then, I thought I would make the ground turkey into meatballs. By the time, I got everything cleaned and chopped and ready, I was too hungry and said screw it and just browned the ground turkey!
Ground Turkey and Kale Soup
- Baby carrots
- Ground turkey
- Gluten free noodles
Soften the onion, carrots and celery in a little olive oil. Add raw ground turkey and cook completely. Add some chicken stock and water until you have the desired amount of soup. Bring to a boil. Add a couple of bouillon cubes. (I would have used all chicken stock if I had it, but this worked!). Add gluten free noodles. Once noodles are cooked, reduce heat to a simmer and add kale. Cook until kale is tender.
**Edit: I forgot to mention once I added the liquid, I added a bay leaf and 3 or 4 sprigs of Thyme!
It was delicious.
Meal #1: Oats with protein powder
Meal #2: Gluten free pretzels
Meals 3, 4 and 5: Ground Turkey and Kale Soup
The first day with no sugar went surprisingly well. I had a faint headache for most of the afternoon and after my last meal I was wanting something sweet, but that’s about it. I just drank extra water and stuck a piece of gum in my mouth after dinner.
I will survive this.
