No Sugar

A new year! I’m determined to cut out sugar and detox from all the lovely holiday deserts…….. and whatever else I indulged in.

Yes, this is hard and I only just begun January 3rd! My only vice I can’t seem to kick as of yet is my daily peanut butter and jelly sandwich ( A lot of sugar in welches jelly). I love a good PB & J. It’s what I look forward to after a workout. I will eventually have to cut that out. I’m following a gradual program where going cold turkey is not necessary nor is it possible for me at the moment. I do need some sanity in this insane program I’m currently on. When I say “program” its not a “real” program, it’s just what I like to call it. For me, sugar in my coffee is heaven. Chocolate sends me in a bliss. My mouth waters thinking about chocolate chip cookies. Haha 🙂 All I”m saying is the least I can do for now is enjoy a good PB & J. As long as I’m not physically pouring sugar over my sandwich than I’m making progress.

The first week is the hardest, than of course the weekend comes and temptation is at its finest. However, I made it through my nephews birthday party without even a bite of his birthday cake! So proud of me 🙂

I have been really into sardines and red beats lately. All I do is mix those into some of my favorite greens, add some quinoa, and I have a healthy filling meal. The challenge right now is being creative with my meals. Sometimes I can only eat so much of the same thing before I’m about to crack. I’m constantly on the hunt for new and improved recipes that don’t take forever to prepare.

Hope you all are having a wonderful New Year thus far. Enjoy what you have, take time to reflect, set goals, take action, prepare and enjoy the now!

“Everybody’s got there poison, and mine is sugar.” Derrick Rose

“I was eating bad stuff. Lots of sugar and carbs, junk food all the time. It makes you very irritated.” Arvil Lavigne

“With all of the holiday cheer in the air, it’s easy to overlook the ingredients in the foods. Ingredients such as salt, sugar, and fat– all of which leads to diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes, strokes, heart disease, and cancer.” Lee Haney

Live, love, honor and laugh out loud! Prioritize you.

About Cassandra Pavolic

As a retired performer for 25 years transitioning careers has been difficult. I truly enjoyed my career as an aerialist performer. I was fortunate enough to see the world, traveled many places and met people from all cultures. I learned a tremendous amount about life and people during my years traveling than I would in a school setting. The one thing I took away from being on the road is that no matter what ethnic background you are, we are all so similar. A smile is a smile in every language (happiness or contentment). Expressions of all emotions have the same meaning around the world. For this reason we are similar, and I somehow find that comforting. I'm now 50! It's hard to believe I'm fifty already! I reflect on my accomplishments as well as my failures up to date. Both are irrelevant to what I value most. I value people and relationships. I value my deity, it is the number one thing that keeps me stable. Being true to myself is a portion of my "food" in regards to my decision making. When I steer away from being my true self I am disappointed. Exercise, taking walks, and being still are another source of "food" in my life. I like to be still, listen and observe all things. I have been this type of person since a young child. Perhaps one of the reasons why I take an interest in Personality Psychology and my recent studies human behavior. I hold an Associates degree in Music/Theater/Dance from Dean College in MA. I quickly realized I wanted to perform, therefore my journey began immediately after graduating from Dean. I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist, as well as a Certified Personal Trainer. I am curious, I am persistent and I am passionate. I'm on a mission to be a better person, to help those who want to help themselves, and to share my thoughts, opinions, experiences to anyone who gives a damn. All in hoping that what I have to offer will change lives as you learn to keep your priorities in order. And so I started prioritize you.
