Change Motivator #7

Today I am unsweetening my diet for more focus and attention.

The roller coaster of impulsive eating and sugar highs/lows does not do much for my ability to focus.  What could have seemed like ADD some days, case may very well have been riding this wave.

Not sure if I am past the physical pull of the sugar, but I know that the psycho-emotional components are still working themselves out.  Having some good snacking options around and knowing (thanks to my great buddy, Dr Jenni Flanagan) that when I am feeling sugar cravings, eat protein has served me well.  Structure and patience…

Not having dessert/sugar as an option during the day has already made it easier.  I just can’t and, thus, don’t do it.  As Jack (Chicken Soup for the Soul) Canfield put it:  99% is a bitch. 100% is a breeze.  (Check out a video on this:  With that off the table, I can afford to focus better.  It’s nice.  (Not perfected, but nice enough.)
