You Don't Have To Race To Be A Runner

Ok.... just gonna toss this out there... if you aren't currently running races / participating in organized events, it does NOT make you any less of a runner or athlete. This past year has definitely been a whirlwind of a year with injuries and health related issues for me. But because of my experiences, it's also changed my perspective on a lot of things.

I used to think that

This Happened When I Added Sugar Back

As I unwrapped the Godiva truffle, I trembled a little. I kid you not. The velvety chocolate melted in my mouth. And I honestly thought I would eat just one. I did the first time.

But as the day went on, I had another, and another until by the end of the day I wound up binge eating about 8 at one time. I felt horrible physically and emotionally. It was my first binge of all or nothing in almost a month. How could I so easily slip back into old habits? I ate an entire bag.

The following days consisted of brownies, cupcakes and cookies.

And I felt sick... physically sick. I was bloated, my joints swelled and hurt, cranky, extremely moody with extreme highs and lows. I was no longer sleeping through the night, and by the 3rd night I woke up with night sweats.



If you are disappointed in me, trust me I am even more disappointed in myself. And I told myself it was time to get a grip.

I'm on my 1st day of no sugar. I don't have a predetermined amount of time that I will stay completely off of processed junk sweets. But I can see just how easy it is for me personally to slip back into old habits. That is not what I want for me or my family. And it is up to me to make the changes.

I did weigh in this week. Last week's weigh in (Another Week With Less Sugar Another Weigh In) was 125.8.

This week's weigh in was
127.8

Yeah, I'll just leave that number right there. I don't see that number as a defeat. I see it as a number, a learning experience, and a reminder of unhealthy habits.

But I can tell you that I have a burning desire to get this 43 soon to be 44 year old body in the best health that I can both physically and emotionally.

And I am doing what I can within my power to make it happen..... one small change at a time.

Join me.... I would love the company. And I would love to help motivate and encourage you along the way.
