For the past 2 weeks I decided to go lite on my sugar fast, which I've been on since the end of July. I felt peace about it. I felt like God was saying, "Kim, it's your fast. I'm not the legalistic one here." So, almost daily I've had some things with sugar in them, including: specialized coffee drinks, a few cookies, some pie, and some candy. Full disclosure…a muffin too.
Now I am sure that God said those things to me. Why? Because He knew that I needed a couple of weeks to see that I'm not ready to go off of my fast yet. :-) I feel terrible….pretty sick. Not good. Get the picture?
In Reading class we are learning about inferencing. You take what the author is saying, add to it your background knowledge, and you create an inference! Or you take what you see in a picture, add to it your background knowledge, or what you sense, and you create an inference! So I am taking this nauseous feeling and the jittery heart beat that I keep feeling, add to it that those are awful feelings, and I create the inference that sugar really does suck for my body.
My body is not a fan of the stuff-and it decided to show me that with the nausea, the rapid heart beat and the gaining of 6 pounds (ouch!). 2 weeks…6 pounds. That's what adding sugar back in has done. The funny thing is that part of that has come from the legarthy that has ensued, putting me to sit so much from being so dang tired. Seriously. What a domino effect.
So I'm done. I can't do this anymore. Sugar, you are gone again…for a very long time. I really don't like you enough for all this. Not. Worth. It.
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye.
