Are you addicted to sugar? Take the quiz!

Yes!!!   I am addicted to sugar.  I am on day 10 of having NO sugar.  I started a 90 day challenge to get off sugar because I really feel better when I just don’t have sugar!!  I came up with this quiz to help you decide if you might be addicted to sugar.  This is everything I have asked myself prior to getting off sugar and I answered YES to all of them.  I would say if you answer 8 out of the 10 you may want to consider joining in on the challenge. 

I know back in the early part of  January when I was dealing with a load of stress I was thinking oh no I keep turning to sugar.  At the time in my mind I new this was only temporary but in reality I had been using sugar in 2012 to deal with the really bad year I was having.  Coming out of the fuzzy blur in January I really think I was ready to give up but it was not until Feb 9th that I just decided it’s time.  YOU have to be ready to do this.  I was off for 2 full years and loved it.  I want that healthy feeling back and I know for me ditching sugar is the way to get it. 

If you are ready to give up sugar leave a message and join the challenge.  Challenge Ends May 4th but this does not mean I am giving up my healthy lifestyle.

September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month

 

obesity monthIn the past four decades, obesity rates in the United States have soared among all age groups. This rise in obesity rates has affected our youth in alarming fashion. Childhood obesity has increased more than fourfold among those ages 6 to 11. Over 23 million children and teenagers in the United States ages 2 to 19 are obese or overweight, a statistic that health and medical experts consider to be an epidemic. And this epidemic puts nearly one third of America’s children at a early risk for Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and even stroke – conditions usually associated with adulthood.

It’s time to dedicate time to educating our kids and youth to learn to eat better and to get at least 6 minutes of exercise daily. I love speaking to our kids and youth. They will change they just need the tools to do so.

Make a goal to talk to your own kids about eating healthy. Set a good example in your home so that you can raise healthy kids. Visit here to get more ideas: Empower Me

 

Monday Motivation!! Micheal Phelps!! Determination!

What a way to go out!! 22 medals and 18 were gold!!

What are the first thoughts that come to mind when looking at this picture? For me it was Determination!! Other words that followed that thought were Focus, Goal, believing in yourself, never give up and give it your all.

We have a mini gym in our garage . On the mirror in our gym sits this picture of Michael Phelps. When I am not in the mood or just plain to tired to give my work out my all I look at that picture and in goes those thoughts. I know how hard he worked to make worlds best. He wanted it and he met the goals that it took to achieve his dream.
I have dreams. I am meeting goals and I am determined to reach my goal. Motivation comes from within. For me it’s like a seed that is planted and as long as I water that seed it will flourish. Good luck to you in whatever your dream maybe. May you archive your goals by keeping your eye on the ball and reaching for the stars.

Dream big, Set goal and Make things happen!!
