The Sweetest Summer

Starting on June 1st, my friends and I will be undertaking a NEW Sugar Free Challenge, along the lines of Sugar Free January. We chose The Sweetest Summer because although there will be no sugar, we will find other sources of sweetness (smoothie anyone?) and have a great time along the way.

As before, refined sugar and sugar-like products will be avoided. for 3 months (June through August). Since this is a long time, we will agree upon specific exception days, such as birthdays.

Follow Through

Yesterday, I posted my plan to begin getting up earlier to attend yoga classes. This morning I followed through on that goal.

The class I went to has a great instructor. She has a really entertaining energy that I think will be good for me. She kept the class lighthearted while still giving us enough direction.

 I didn't feel as dopey as usual this morning, even though I didn't get coffee or breakfast until after the class. Next time, I might bring green tea to drink on the way to class because I enjoy having something hot in the morning, but getting out of my two to four coffee a day habit would probably be good for my health and my wallet.

Disappointed But Not Surprised

Dear Internet,
It has been 3 months since I last posted. I have eaten like a binge eater, exercised like a couch potato, and backslid into a toxic relationship. I have had an all-around unhealthy set of months.

I definitely need to pull my act together. My body and soul feel terrible.

This last weekend, I began to fix the issues. I went on a hike with a friend and I went on my first run since my marathon in early March. I also broke up with the ex that I had gotten involved with again. I have not yet dealt with my food choices, but that is going to start on May 1st. One thing at a time please.
