Nearly one month

Friday, July 26, 2013

Very close to one month in the sweet tooth challenge. It hasn't been excruciating but I miss the fruit. I'm not comfortable with the fact that I'm eating more, but at the same time I haven't put on or lost weight for the 2nd week in a row and it's a relief. Still 2kg away from my goal weight.

This week I have a night outing and on Friday I'm going away for 3 days to the Byron Bay Writers Festival. I'm taking sugarless snacks to survive, I've done it before. The challenge is to keep the sodium low.

My sciatica has improved with specific exercises but I'm still not well, I feel more confident that I will be able to sit through the festival, I was worried that I wouldn't' be able.

My external accountability group is going well, it'd be more difficult without it.
Life is good.

    I'm glad you're feeling a little better. The Conference sounds like something that I would love going to. I hope you have a cushion of some sorts to sit on that you can bring with you. I had one for years that I made in Girl Scouts that I absolutely loved. It fell apart and I haven't replaced it. Maybe it's time I do.

    Good job Claudia. You are doing really well.
Enjoy Byron Bay. I am already picking out
events for the Brisbane Writer's Festival in
September,but I'm sure the atmosphere will
be nicer in Byron. Have a great time and I hope
your sciatica doesn't give you too much pain.

    Claudia, awesome job sticking to staying sugar free, that is terrific! I know I would not be able to stick to a sugar free diet, I love my fruit too much. Congrats on being so close to your goal, I hope you make it there soon!
