I have just challenged myself and I was wondering…anyone want to take the challenge with me?!?!?!
Pretty please with sugar on top?
OH WAIT! NO, NOT with sugar on top!
That’s what this challenge is about!
I have decided that I eat ENTIRELY TOO MUCH SUGAR.
I pride myself on eating well and feeding my family well.
And here I am eating valentine candy like a junky. (I tell myself that if I eat it, the candy won’t be around for the kids to eat…oh I’m such a good mother…thinking of the health of my children.)
AND, I also realllllly love to bake and have goodies on hand. I make them with unproccessed sugar and whole wheat flour so they are better…but it’s still sugar.
Sugar is so stinkin’ good. (as in yummy…not as in good for you)
And it is VERY addicting. Our bodies begin to crave it and that’s a fact.
So, in an effort to cleanse my system and feel great, I decided to challenge myself.
I started off with a small goal: Don’t eat sugar in any form for one whole day.
For those of you who go for days at a time without sugar, just never mind okay? Just leave me alone.
I don’t want to hear how easy that goal might seem to you.
YOU JUST DON’T KNOW HOW IT IS! IT’S HARD, OKAY?
(Wow, sounds like someone is having a little sugar withdrawl and is a little grouchy.)
Anyway, I went all day yesterday without sugar of any form. And I went to bed feeling great!
So then I decided to increase my goal: Don’t eat sugar for one week.
Maybe, just maybe, I’ll increase my goal after this week. I’m trying to be realistic with myself and not bite off more than I can chew (of course I’m not biting off anything that’s chewy, ooey, gooey…).
And then I decided that I needed help to do this thing, which is why I’m telling you about it.
And I also figured there might be others who want to take the challenge with me.
Any form of the challenge. One day, one week…even just cutting back to less sugar.
C’mon…we’re all sweet enough as it is. It’ll be good for you.
So give it some thought. I know you can do it!
If you decide to take the challenge…leave a comment or email me! Tell me what goal you have set for yourself. Maybe you have a different “health goal” you’ve set for yourself. Let us know about it.
If nothing else, leave me a comment and tell me what a good job I’m doing and how I’ll be so glad that I did this and I’m gonna feel so much better and have so much more energy… But whatever you do…do not mention
I SAID DON’T MENTION IT!
I’m an addict, remember?
Be sure to check back with me here tomorrow and find out how it’s going! I’ll be ready to fill you in on all the struggles and triumphs of this wonderful No Sugar Plunge!
C’mon and jump in with me!
