For a brief update on my no sugar progress-- it's been over a week now and I am doing well. I, once again, turned down some delicious sweets at a family function and didn't feel bad about it at all! I have to admit that yesterday I had a huge craving for some peanut butter and chocolate but I resisted. I will have all natural sweets again at some point-- things baked with honey, fruit, etc-- but not for now. I can honestly say that I don't really miss it at all. It actually feels great to think that I don't miss it and to know that I don't really need it like I was once convinced I did. I am proud of my progress. And, am considering other 30 day challenges in the future. (The photo a day sounds like fun!)
I will admit that did I have some ribs with BBQ sauce though. It may seem like nothing, but BBQ sauce has corn syrup in it (read SUGAR) so while I am doing well on the sweets front, I need to be more mindful about ingredients in ALL foods I eat. It's amazing how sugar is really in so many things!
If you are reading this-- what would your 30 day challenge look like?
