While reading one of my favorite blogs from a homeschooler, I learned that the author, Diane Hopkins, has been sugar free for over 100 days. (Click on that to read her post yourself.) That is just the challenge I needed to hear about. I can totally relate to her: I can't just have one cookie. I'll eat them until they're gone. I also couldn't have a candy dish out. I do much better if I just cut something off completely. I know that I need to do this. I am having all kinds of candida/yeast issues on my skin and in my brain. Diane recommends reading the book 'Suicide By Sugar' and I think I will take the suggestion.
I have to make a plan as to when I want to begin my own 100 Day Sugar Free Challenge. Would I be setting myself up for failure if I tried to do it during the holidays? I think that I would be. So maybe the New Year?
Anyone else up to committing to 100 days without sugar? Come on! It'll be great and we can do it together.
