Giving Up Sugar


I have been meaning to do this. But every where I go there is more sugar in my face. Not just sugar, but chocolate. So much chocolate. If I was a superhero my weakness would be chocolate. The world would be ending and only I could save it, but I would be too busy eating the chocolate that the bad guy set out for me.

Yesterday I made the decision to give up sugar for one week. That is how I got rid of soda last year. I gave up sugar for a little bit and the only thing that stuck was the soda. Yay for not being a slave to sodas anymore. I seriously drink more water than anything now and I used to hate water.

Now, my sugar free challenge is just for candy. I eat a lot of candy. I am ashamed at myself for how much candy I eat. I am cutting out candy, ice cream…and anything else that is loaded with unnatrual sugar, except grape jelly. I eat a pb&j sandwich with milk for breakfast. Until I can afford to get me some oatmeal that will stay.

Today will be the first day without any sugar and I have to go to work. If you missed it, I work at Dollar Tree. Everything is a dollar! And there is an entire isle of candy! All my favorite kinds of candy and chocolate. And I have to work all day! Well…it seems like all day to me.

I plan on starting a weekly recap on here. Just one day, one blog a week, where I will recap how I am doing with all my goals that I had set for that week. I will do it on Saturdays since it is technically the last day of the week and the best time to really do a recap. Also, it is a week from today and I am starting my no sugar thing today. So tune in next Saturday to see how well or how horribly I did at this whole no sugar thing. On top of that I am trying to get in three liters of water a day and I really need to get back to the gym.

So, for a quick recap, my goals for this coming week so far is as follows:

  1. No Sugar
  2. 3 liters of water a day.
  3. Work out at least once (I will work my way up to 3 times a week)
  4. Write at least 500 words a day
  5. Post a blog everyday

That’s all I got for now. So far, this month, I have done a horrible job at keeping up with my goals. Maybe having some where that I am accountable for it I will actually do what I say I’m going to do.
