Live Below The Line 2014 – Day 4


I am so behind updating these posts from my last two days but will be getting a handle on this over the weekend, so much to happen over the next few weeks with The Less Is More Challenge and it is all very exciting!! #tlimc

Day 4 – Monday March 31st. Today I am getting into the groove of living below the line and have more control over my huge sugar withdraw symptoms. Apparently sugar is more addictive than heroin! Seriously I don’t know if I dreamt that fact but I sure as hell believe it – I could break through a wall for chocolate at certain times of the day.
