Been awhile

Wednesday, April 27, 2016

Wow! It has been quite some time since I logged onto Spark People. We no longer have internet service where we live, so my access is very limited.

How have things been for me? Well, I have lost a couple of pounds and hopefully, they will stay lost.

I have been training with my 14 year old granddaughter for a 10k race, which is on Saturday. This is her first 10k and I may be more nervous than her. I am so paranoid that she will lose her way and we'll have to skirt the town looking for her. That is my fear, not hers. I know she will do great and the course is well marked. I have ran it for the last 5 years now.

But hey! How many teenagers can say, "I am running a race with my grandma?" I love creating memories with my grandchildren.

I am struggling with being 100% plant-based with my diet, but for the most part, I am eating lots of plants. My sweet tooth is a real bear though, and it is giving me lots of grief. I need to really tame that thing and lock it in its cage and throw away the key.

I managed to do it about 4 years ago and cannot figure out why I am having such a struggle this time around. The only thing I can think of is I am eating more carbs this time around. Unfortunately, a lot of those carbs are in the form of sugar, sugar and more sugar.
Seems like a simple enough solution: STOP EATING ALL THAT SUGAR!

I want to say starting May 1, let's do a no sugar challenge! But I do not know when and if I will be able to log on to SP enough to be effective in a challenge. But it will be good to do on own, perhaps see how long of a streak I can do.

Well, thanks for reading and hopefully, we'll have internet at home sometime this fall. Anyway, that is what we are being told. Keeping my fingers crossed

    Great racing with Grandma. Try simplesmoothies.com. Their smoothy challenges are great. Smoothies help with my sweet tooth and now I am doing 7 day reset - plant based and awesome!

    You are creating great memories with your granddaughter!

    I have slipped and started eating more carbs. It gives me a bear of an appetite. I am on board with a lower carb and no sweets challenge.

    You can do it!
