Ok, so I feel a little bit like I am putting myself "out" there by saying this to the world, but here we go. Maybe if I put it on here, I will really stick to it. One my former Young Women is on a no sugar diet for a year.
I've decided to copy her, but I'm only going to do two weeks. Why I am doing this? When I had morning sickness, sugar did not sound good at all. I was thinking that if I never started up on sugar again, then I wouldn't be addicted any more.
Well, slowly and gradually I'm having too much sugar. After having 4 (Ok 5) cookies yesterday and starting my day off with Chocolate Chex this morning, I've decided to start an experiment with myself to see if I can detox off of sugar.
Here are my rules for myself:
1) Put away all temptations.
2) Have no foods that are blatantly sugar-full. To me this means that I have Cheerios (which has sugar) but no choco chex, etc. I can have bread, but no banana bread with choco chips, etc. for two weeks.
3) I can have some splenda things, but no making a million desserts with sugar substitutes.
4) I better stock up sugar free jello's, gum etc.
To me this is no small sacrifice. I could have picked a better time. I always tend to pudge up a bit during tax season. And of course being prego, I haven't particularly restricted myself on anything. But I've decided I could do this to be a little healthier. I also have B's Birthday coming up etc, etc. But I'm still going to do it.
I will try to report how it's going. If you care to join me, you can make a comment here, add it to your own blog, etc. etc. You can make your own rules too if you want.
Here we go!
