I've had it with these intense sugar cravings. I'm over it. I don't think I necessarily want to be over sugar forever, but I'd love not to consume it every day.
I overheard last night at the Paleo Potluck we had at the Crossfit gym where my husband coaches that craving sugar could be an indicator you aren't getting enough sleep. Well, that explains it. Considering both of my children think it's hysterical to start out as newborns sleeping wonderfully and then after 4 months of age decide to mix it up a bit and start waking every 3 hours after going to sleep. So yeah...sleep deprivation is definitely at play here. I've never heard of a sugar craving having anything to do with it, so I'm definitely going to ask more. It makes sense because it's been very strong after the births of each my children. But...I also love sugar. So it could just be that!
Anyways, we'll be starting our 30-day Paleo Challenge soon. Yes...again. However, this time we are giving up dairy. One - I want to eliminate it to see if it helps with the congestion/allergies I've suffered from since being a kid. Two - I've mentioned our daughter's skin issues. So hopefully this challenge will help see if the dairy is the culprit. We're getting a little help from the folks over at Paleo Plan. They seriously make it too easy to NOT at least try Paleo for 30 days. Such a great site. So very easy to navigate (and it has pretty photos, so that's always a plus in my opinion!).
I am also truly starting to workout again. A friend of mine is currently doing the intro classes at the gym and she'll be finished next week. We've already got our twice a week workouts on the calendar. I really have no excuses.
So here we go. Again. I did it for 6 weeks last time...surely I can do another 30 days...with no dairy...which means no cheese. Ugh.
