2 Week No Sugar Challenge

Hello Dear Readers. Sorry I've been MIA for the past month and a half. I've been busy with school stuff and time has flown by. I only have a couple more weeks of my senior year at University of Memphis left and am so anxious about finishing well.

So I've been trying to ramp up my healthy eating and healthy habits. I figure I really need to practice what I preach. I want to be a great example to friends, family, patients/clients, random strangers. I can't do this if I'm telling them to cut back or quit drinking soda pop and I'm chugging down a 32oz Dr Pepper a week (more on bad weeks). I can't say get up and move if I'm not doing it as well. The difference between me and them is that I know what I'm doing to myself and I know how to fix it. That makes what I do to myself when I let bad choices reign even worse. So I need to get that straight quick.

So one thing  I'm doing, as the title of this post states, is a quick 2-week no sugar challenge. It's really a no ADDED sugar challenge. I'll still eat fruit and naturally sweetened items. I'm also going to keep adding a teaspoon of sugar to my morning 20 oz coffee. However, all that Easter candy, leftover cheesecake, cinnamon rolls. That will not cross my lips. No soda pop, no sweet tea, no candy bars, no cookies (unless I bake some sweetened with fruit). It's not as horrible as it sounds, and I've made it 2-3 weeks before sugar free. I can do it again.  I'll try to post on here how it's going, but not giving any promises since I also have to study for finals and wrap up my senior project and internship.

Have a great week Dear Readers.
