A fourteen-day chocolate fast A permanent break with chocolate, inspired by A Year of No Sugar, a stepping stone to becoming Added-Sugar-Free (Mostly!).
Day 4 (May 4).

I need to get that tattooed on my body somewhere–or henna tattooed, since I’m not into pain, but I am into pretty impermanent art.
But I got past Day 3. I think the third day in diet changes is probably the hardest. I survived that, and the cravings are less.
Yet I am still sleepy during the days, and I have the end of the day slump. That’s more than physical fatigue; it’s mental. It’s the insidious voice that says, “Maybe you can’t do this,” especially after seeing chocolate everywhere, even in pics to make blog art. God, the pics.
Lesson learned: mornings are great for motivation and goal-setting; evenings are great for doubt. Become a morning person. And stop looking at chocolate pictures!
I can do this.
