Bye Bye Sugar


If you know me by now you know that I have a sweet tooth. my most favorite thing to eat in the world is cake and  I can say I have at least one piece every day ( and sometimes even more). I know it's not good and I am not talking about gaining weight or stuff like that because of my workout routine I don't gain weight but this level of sugar is not healthy at all. 
So when I heard about this I thought it might be a good opportunity for me and I signed up for One Month Sugar Free Challenge organized by Fuck cancer. I love a good challenge, making new habits and breaking old ones ..., maybe after a month I would have control over my sugar addiction. A lot of people complain that sugar makes them sick, tired... but it does not do any of those to me. so I will see after this month if I feel any better without sugar or not.   
The challenge is to eliminate sugar for 1 month starting from June 20 and by any chance if anyone had a slip up, it is ok just they recommend to donate 1$ to Fuck cancer. fruits and handy natural sweeteners (like Stevia and Agave) are ok and honey is definitely a NO. I read al the labels now and I am really suprised by the amount of  sugar in everything. 
Today is the 2rd day of the challenge and yesterday afternoon I really could feel the lack of sugar in my body.it was really hard and I barely could do anything.  I did take lots of snacks with me today like pistachio, almonds, fruits so maybe today will be easier. I just hope I don't develop another addiction by the end of the month ;)

So what about you, do you have a sweet tooth ?!
Hope you all have a great Tuesday

  3. Congrat mania this challenge is not an easy one. I don t know if you are feeling better in 1 month but you can feel the difference maybe in your body. The most difficult part is the beginning after it is like a routine and you will get use to. Anyway, good luck and let me know.

  4. Way to go! I've never been able to kick it completely!

  5. Thanks Marie, Kristin for good luck wishes :)

  6. Great challenge and good for you for taking this challenge on! I totally understand how hard it is as I myself have a sweet tooth and not eating any a whole month seems nearly impossible. Good luck with it and ill be cheering you on from the sidelines!

  7. @ The.Shoe.Freak thanks for your sweet comment and cheering :)
