I am going on a 30day personal challenge! I have an addiction for cookies, sweets, and well yum yums. I am challenging myself to stay away from sweets, white sugar, baked goods, and anything that I have to add sugar too. So this means I will have tea with out sugar, oatmeal with out sugar, and anything else you add sugar too. I will allow myself some indulgences for example, fresh fruits, toast with apple butter, the occasional orange juice for a Vitamin C boost when needed. I want to prove to myself that I don't need these extra things to survive or to even live a full life. I have always loved to bake. I bake for me and the kids. I eat more than I should and that's where I want to break the cycle. We as Americans eat to many processed foods(convenience foods). They have contributed to poor health and quite frankly I want to make a change for me. So this is day one week one of my 30day challenge.
I will finish the challenge on December 9th. Yes I will go through Thanksgiving with no sweets or pie, cakes, or cookies. I can do it. If you would like to join me great! If not that's fine too. After all I am doing this for me. I want to add that I have never done this before so I am excited and scared.
Here's to good Health!
