I was feeling very optimistic about all this, then this fibro flair started. Wow is it a big one too.
My legs and feet feel like they are on fire and throbbing like they should be swollen, yet they aren't. Our sheltie ran into my legs earlier and I thought I was going to throw up it hurt so badly. My muscles all over are spasming, sore, stiff and sensitive. I can only shuffle and the more I move, the more it burns. Great day to be babysitting our two neighbor's children too. They were good about it though, and they did help entertain our son.
I want to binge on sugar sooooo badly! I haven't yet, but no peanut butter and crackers is safe.

I made it through day 7 and have no plans to eat any sugar any time soon! Yeah!!!
Today was a little rougher because I'm really, really tired today. I think I over did things yesterday and now I'm paying for it. My legs are burning up to mid calf today too, but that's still better than before! I think being sooooo tired caused more cravings today, but I didn't give in!
Time to rest now. That's what I really need!

Things are definitely better now!
We went to a berry patch and picked blueberries, then took our son to his first movie this afternoon. It was so much fun!
My energy seems to have evened out, and I'm still getting things done. I'm sleeping better most nights, and the terrible burning in my legs and arms has gone away. Yeah!
I'm going to continue "no sugar" as an ongoing goal - with special occasions allowing a special treat. Special occasions being things like holidays and the treat better be really special! Not even going to try this until much more time has passed.
I still haven't decided what my next goal is, but my husband thinks I should give it another week before adding more changes. To let this new habit get more settled in. Don't want to get overwhelmed and crash. I understand his point, this is a lifestyle change so I want to keep going!

I have to say I'm finally feeling better. I'm not obsessing about the sugary stuff, and it only jumps into my thoughts here and there now. And my energy seems to have evened out some. It's not as high as I'd like, but I'm not actually face down on the table. We also did some water exercising this morning, so we might be dragging from that.
Funny part is that my plantar facitis (spelling?) is worse! No fair!!! But I'm sure it will go away eventually and avoiding sugar can't be a bad thing for this.
My mom and I were busy chopping kale and freezing it for this winter today. It's great in soups and smoothies! We've never tried freezing our own before though. It will be fun to see how it works out!
I can't believe I've made it this far!!! Yeah!
I haven't decided what to tackle next, but I know I wouldn't have made it this far with out all this great support. Thank you!
