Alas, it is hard to kick old habits, and this pregnancy has taken away all self-control when it comes to food. I've been so hungry and unnecessarily concerned about not gaining enough weight that I've eaten pretty much everything that's been put in front of me. This has not been great for my energy levels or mental clarity, which are already compromised by pregnancy brain. So, I've putting our house on another sugar fast for the month of May.
Ok, to be honest. This has been an, ahem, partial fast. I've cheated a few times. Like I said, I have no self control when I'm pregnant. I have done much, much better, and I've only cheated 4 or 5 times. I'm feeling much better, too.
So, if you, like me, need a little inspiration to pass on the sugar, here's a recap on my sugar-free series from last year:
