Hi everyone! I'd love to join in if that's OK!
Yesterday was my 30th birthday, and it was such a lovely day -- a trip to the symphony and a lovely dinner with friends! Knowing my favorite food is chocolate, a number of friends as well as my boyfriend were very sweet (pun intended!) and bought me some of my favorite chocolate-themed treats.
However, on a whim, and mostly to be silly, I said to them "You know, I don't eat sugar anymore...that was something I did when I was 29!" Everyone laughed, as I have been trying to give up sugar for the past three YEARS and it never lasts. However, magically, yesterday I actually WAS able to resist refined sugar all day!!
So I only have two goals this week and they are VERY simple/basic, mostly because detoxing from refined sugar makes me a sad sad puppy D:
1. NO REFINED SUGAR (eating foods containing natural sugar, such as fruit, is OK)
2. Go to the gym for an hour at least once a day (but preferably go twice)
My weight is slightly higher than it's been all year (was holding pretty steady at 141, now i am closer to 144), so I am hoping this helps me!
Good luck everyone with your goals this week, love all of the support and encouragement in this place!
Goal 1: under 140 (want to see those 130s again!
Goal 2: 138.4 (my former "maintaining" weight)
Goal 3: 137.8 (exactly halfway in the healthy BMI indiex for my height)
Weight as of...
No more caffeine or aspartame, yay! <3
No refined sugar (with a few minor slip-ups here and there ;D) since ... 11/11/12 D:
