Part 2 "If There Is No Struggle, There Is No Progress!"

Me, doing what I love to do!
So, my trainer told me to cut back on my sugar intake, and I was not happy about it. The next day I started tracking my calories and by lunch time, I was already over 15 grams of sugar. Not added sugar, but sugar from blueberries, nectarine, a little peanut butter and my favorite Ezekiel Bread. Now, if this bread is named after the chapter in the bible, how can it possibly have that evil sugar?  While the sugar in the bread is all natural, it is still sugar.

I texted Berhane and said "It's impossible to eat 15 grams or less of sugar a day."

He responded, "I'm going to need you to do it." 

This is when I wanted to do something crazy like throw a chair, scream, tell him that he was ridiculous, but instead I made up in my mind that I would try it.

So, the next day, I modified my breakfast and had a fourth of a cup of blueberries with my oatmeal, I did not eat peanut butter nor Ezekiel Bread, instead I had a boil egg and a few nuts. I also made some other adjustments throughout the day. I did not reach the goal of 15 grams of sugar  or less by the end of the day, but I was definitely a whole lot closer to the goal.

I am learning, "Rome was not built over night" and neither will a fine, health body. I had to throw fine in. Although I am concerned with the inside of my body, I'm just as concerned about the outside. Sorry Berhane, I know you stress health more than anything else, but I had to be honest :)

In my head, I am singing a spiritual "One Day at a Time Sweet Jesus" ............

If you know the words, join me.........................
