Lent, typically followed by Catholics, starts tomorrow.
I am not Catholic, however, I see the need in my life and my family's to break our addiction to sugar. And I figure, why not do it now while a great deal of other people are doing the same. Mark and I started our quest to cut sugar at the beginning of the year, and we did awesome for quite some time. The last few weeks, littered with holidays and vacations, haven't been the best. And I'll tell you, I can feel the difference.
When I eat a lot of sugar, frankly, I feel like Poo!
I'm tired. Blue. Un-motivated. Sluggish. Mean.
Pretty much, life sucks. Watch the video, you'll see what I'm talking about.
So, though I know cutting the sugar addiction is hard (I've traveled this road before), I also know it's better for my well-being.
I'm not saying that all sugars like those found in fruit and veggies are bad, but I definitely think rocky road ice cream before bed isn't scoring points with my thighs.
So here's the plan:
40 Days to become a healthier, more-energetic me!
Anything made with High Fructose Corn Syrup
Any processed food that has SUGAR listed as one of the first three ingredients
