Confessions of the Confectionery kind

I have a confession to make. I was at a birthday party over the weekend and there on the side table sat about 40 cupcakes. Normally, I would walk away but as I got closer and could actually SMELL THE BUTTERCREAM frosting, I couldn't resist. So I ate inhaled one. 
In about 7.5 seconds. 


Not only did I blow up like a balloon but since then have had more sugar cravings and have unfortunately been giving into them. I justified it by making sure the treats remained dairy and gluten free (however that cupcake certainly was not) but I've realized that sugar in anything other than teeny tiny doses, is not something I can digest. 

I'm getting back on track and detoxifying my body from the effects of the demon that is sugar by drinking lots of water, detox teas and foods high in alkaline. I used to live by the old adage, "everything in moderation" but when dealing with Candida, even moderate amounts of sugar prove toxic to the system.

So what. There was a brief hiccup in what has been over 3 months of a very clean, natural and toxic free diet. I'm not going to beat myself up over it because my insides are already doing that for me. They've definitely let me know that this was not acceptable and this time, I'm listening. 
More than I ever have before.

oooh...I get the bathroom floor photo. So sorry about that! But I'm glad that you're not beating yourself up for one lapse. You've changed your life in the past few months, with more self-discipline than most people could ever muster! You go, girl!

Thank you for your support and encouragement. It means so much! I think that little slip up re-booted the sugar cravings so it's like having to go through another round of withdrawals again which can be grueling. Going to attempt lemonade using the juicer in a bit so hopefully the bitterness helps counteract what's left of my sugar riddled gut. YUCK!
