Less Sugar - More Walking!

Tuesday, March 27, 2012

I'm making verrry slow progress - but I'm ok with that. I walked a 5K last weekend. I wasn't fast, but I stuck with it and I feel good about it. I've been having a fair amount of pain in my joints, and have been trying to sort out aging issues from lifestyle isues. I've had some inflammation, so I read a bit about how to address that. One of the factors that stuck out for me was sugar.

Of course I've heard about the evils of sugar, but I do have a sweet tooth! And before this year, I didn't really see a negative effect from sugar, aside from calorie and weight issues. That's changed. So I'm cutting way down, avoiding sweets. I know I get sugar in some of the processed foods I eat, but I'm taking in a lot less sugar for now. And I feel far less achy. It's a powerful change for me, I feel good about it.

So here's to my first 5K , the new spring, and gentle changes!
