  • Welcome!…

    to “A Step Inside”… our personal family blog, documenting the craziness of our every day life.. Sit back, enjoy, laugh, and share in the road we travel..

    I'm Bridget.. A SAHM (stay at home mom), mother of 3, and a follower of Christ. I'm also a photographer, and passionate about life.. I hope to share that w/ you too! Life isn't always perfect, but it's perfectly created in His plan. I'm beyond thankful for God's grace and His many blessings!

21 Day Sugar Detox | Days 5 -8

Doing great!!

Day 5:  We had a family night w/ our small group, and while we had plenty of power foods surrounding us, there was also temptation in full force..  Avanti’s gondolas, s’mores fresh off the campfire, and a delicious looking cool whip butter-finger dessert.  My friend & I enjoyed lots of veggies, guacamole, olives, and lettuce wrapped avocado egg salad.  I would have loved to have had the other food items, but I was SO proud of myself for keeping my will power in check.

Day 6:  This Saturday evening we went to dinner w/ family & friends.. I checked the menu ahead of time so I would have an idea of what I would order.  The hardest part of our dinner out was not ordering a cocktail to enjoy!  My dinner of steak, asparagus, and a seasonal vegetable mix was delicious.  Energy this day was back to normal, and I felt great.

Day 7:  I was a bit tired, however I’ll chalk that up to not getting home until late from being w/ my family.  No cravings though.  We grilled for dinner, so I enjoyed a great pork filet w/ broccoli.  I’m really surprised how much my cravings for sweet have decreased.  The scale showed down 3lbs today!

Day 8:  Felt back to normal (yes, I use that term loosely).. Starting to get a little bored w/ the same snack foods, but a trip to the grocery store for some new variety will hopefully help.
