21 Day Sugar Detox

21 days to ditch the sugar habit

Okay everyone 5 friends and I are doing a 21 day sugar detox starting tomorrow.  This will bring us to November 14th.  Cleaning out your system and ridding of all bad is so good for your body.  We are giving up all forms of sugar.  Doing this for the next 21 days will help us go into the holidays with us ahead of the game and we will not be craving all the sugar that will be going through our homes during Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and  New Years Eve.  Feel free to join us!! :-)

21 day detox

So if you do you need to stop eating:

All processed sugar

All white breads

You will need to eat: 

Vegetable Click here to view a list of low carb veggies. 

lean meat

low glycemic fruit: Click here for a great list of  what fruits are good to eat while detoxing

for snacks you can have,

Edamame beans, nuts, more veggies.

Make sure you are drinking lot’s of water to flush out the toxins.

I will warn you that giving up sugar for me takes prayer,  I have to include god in the process because I have a sugar addiction.  I pray often esp when I am craving sugar.  The first 3 days are by far the worst after that it’s pretty much just focusing on the prize.  The prize is more energy, a feeling of well being, happy and more of a steady mood.

Here is my link on Pinterest for my Sugar Detox ~ Giving up sugar.  follow it to gain tips and inspiration to keep you motivated throughout the 21 days.  Sugar Detox Board

Good luck everyone!!  WE CAN DO THIS!!!

Walktober ~ National Walking Month

WalktoberOctober is national Walking Month!!  October is National Walking Month — It’s a beautiful time of year.  The temperatures are cooling down and the colors are absolutely beautiful!!  Make the best of the month and walk all month long.  This awesome campaign is to get you up and get you moving.  Inspire others to do the same.  Make walking a priority this month.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, physical activity such as walking can help:

  • Reduce the risk of dying from coronary heart disease and of developing high blood pressure, colon cancer and diabetes.
  • Reduce blood pressure in some people with hypertension.
  • Control weight, develop lean muscle and reduce body fat.
  • Maintain healthy bones, muscles and joints.
  • Reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression and fosters improvements in mood and feelings of well-being.

So “Get Up and Get Moving” and feel great during Walktober and beyond!!
