Well!!!!! I have made it a little over a month with nearly no sugar! I say “nearly” because my fruits contain sugar but at least its the good kind of sugar. I am impressed by my success thus far to be honest and I intend to keep it going till the next Holiday (that will be my excuse to have whatever for the moment).
Oh but wait! I have allowed myself some dark chocolate to honor Valentines day of course. It’s tradition to enjoy a little chocolate on that sweet, sweet day of love ( what an excuse, but a good one). HA!
Really cutting out, or cutting back on sugar has helped me feel better. I have been experiencing with eliminating certain foods that cause a reaction to my epidermis. I also believe that certain foods cause inflammation within my body. For example, strawberries and tomatoes, although I love them, cause my face to breakout or become red. Certain foods make me very bloated, like onions for instance. I have no idea why but they do. Also I LOVE cheese but that too makes me bloated. I am testing out goat cheese…… That’s still on trial. LOL
I think the best thing I could do is cut out, or cut WAY BACK on sugar. That has no doubt made a difference. I do believe everything in moderation but right now I have been in serious need of a semi detox, if I may call it that, from sugar. That has been my main goal. As I mentioned earlier, I intend to stay on track!
Update on my mandolin playing……. well lets just say I’m still playing!! LOL. Actually, I really do enjoy it and wish I could dedicate more time to practice. I think I could be good at this. Ok, you can be good at anything if you’re dedicated. Family, kids, bf, life, blah, blah, blah….. right?! Doesn’t matter, I’m not giving up. It just may take me longer to get to where I want to be that’s all.
I am now learning “La Donna E Mobile”. The easy version… haha. That’s progress!
Happy Valentines Day!
