No More Sugar

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

Today I realized I didn't want sugar. I can't remember the last time that I actually wanted something sweet. I am on week 3 of the sugar detox challenge and I think its worked. For now anyway but the plan is to stick to it. No more sugar for me. Its splenda for this girl here on out. I think what has helped me is whey shakes. I mix a cup of milk with ice, a little sugar free vanilla syrup, benefiber, splenda, and whey powder and the texture and taste is almost like a milkshake. For a little less than 200 calories. Sometimes I cheat and add a tablespoon of coffee creamer but the extra 50 calories are worth it. I've kept up with my workouts. Sometimes I was lazy and didn't wnat to go to the gym but I stll did zumba and the biggest loser challenge with my wii. My challenge this week has been adjusting to daylight savings time. I always feel so tired even though I love the extra hours of light. Hopefully I will adjust soon. Until then I have my biggest loser challenge to keep me in line. Go team Phoenix! I'm so excited to finally be starting. I hope and envision myself working toward my goals all the way to the end and not dragging to the finish line.

    WTG I too gave up sugar entirely, and still am a very modest sugar consumer.. It helped tremendously for many reasons. Inflammation of the joints, no more yeast infections, no more sugar spikes, no headachey feelings.. the list goes on and on.. For me I stick to something natural, Stevia.. I tried the splendar and it wasn't for me.. We all have to make our choices I see you are stepping up to the plate and it is showing. WTG! emoticon
