I'm doing this for:
Healthier, whiter, and stronger teeth
Keeping healthy weight on
Reducing my awful back aches
Reduce my shortness of breath
Reduce unnecessary, costly sugar binges
Better sleeping habits
Lately, I've been fatigued. My whole body, not just my back, aches constantly. Sleeping is awful. I'm either awake and can't go to sleep, have terrible nightmares, or struggle to even open an eyelid and sometimes I enjoy all three! My gums seem to be pulling away from my teeth and sugar is only increasing the speed of my roots becoming exposed. Pretty soon, I'll obtain diabetes and other health complications if I don't stop now.
Drink water instead of soda. Less money spent, better for your body.
Incorporate more fruit and honey instead of pure cane sugar.
No more vending machine runs.
I want to continue on my path to be a minimalist. Eating healthy is also included in this journey.
12/8/15: This is the hardest obstacle I've ever put myself through. Some days are going to be extremely hard. Going to try and create a spreadsheet to see if it helps with meal planning and less spending.
12/16/15: Sugar is an addiction. No question. I'm having a real hard time saying no. I feel good before ingesting it. I know I'll regret it with the headaches, stomach ache, bloated feeling, and fatigue. I've been drinking more tea with honey instead of sugar and the fruits seam to help curb being hungry constantly. The binges seem to be slowing down.
01/07/15: I'm back from London and back in to the no sugar challenge. Yesterday I had my last of the sugars, but now I'm craving! The problem is, is that they have a vending machine downstairs and I know a coca-cola is only 75 cents. I have snack food and healthy cocoa covered almonds made by Blue Diamond, but they aren't helping! I need an IV of just straight liquid diabetes...I guess I'll get some more water...
01/11/15: I caved in during the weekend and had a couple biscuits from fastfood restaraunts, a bean burrito from Taco Hell and only sweet tea. Not soda. I also went shopping and grabbed a bunch of healthy food for the remaining of the week. It's extremely hard transitioning, but the main point is to keep trying to do better. With that being said, I'm going to be posting meals on here as well to help keep my feet in the fire.
