Giving Up Sugar…


I’m gonna try this for one week.  One week.  I don’t know how I’ll do, but I have to try.

I have a huge sweet tooth, and I know it’s hindering my performance goals.

Beginning now, Saturday Jan 27th, 2018, at 2:42 pm.

Some of my strategies:

  1. Replace sugar in coffee with cinnamon only.
  2. Drink more water.
  3. Don’t buy treats I like.
  4. Stick to Zone Diet at much as possible.

You all will be my accountability partners.  And I’ll need it.

I’ll update regularly.

Wish me luck!!!

Update on Diet…

God, I hate that word.


Such a negative connotation.

But an unavoidable one as I can’t think of a proper synonym.stock-photo-balanced-diet-healthy-food-on-wooden-table-590825882

So my “diet” is going well.  Perhaps too well.

I’ve lost almost 8 pounds in two months.  I’ve definitely leaned out that’s for sure, which was my goal.  However, I need to keep my strength gains going so I don’t want to lose anymor.

It’s a delicate balance and one I still need to tweak.

But seeing results is a good thing.  And I feel much better than I did with excess fat due to unhealthy eating habits.

Now the problem with eating outside of my diet (like cake and ice cream on my daughter’s birthday) is the horrible stomach pains I feel afterwards.  Yuck!
