Day 8 – Day 8

February 21, 2018 | Danielle | Cancer Survivorship | 0

Well it’s after 10 p.m. and I am just now sitting down to blog about how the 45 day sugar fast is going. Throughout the day I’ve wondered what to share. And… well. It’s day 8. I did have chai tea today and afterwards I wondered if I’d accidentally drank sugar. I didn’t intentionally cheat…

Blogability – Day 7

February 20, 2018 | Danielle | Cancer Survivorship | 0

I realized something as I sat on the rowing machine yesterday talking to my friend Kaitlyn about these daily blogs: You all are helping keep me accountable. Yes, it’s true. We may not even know one another personally, but just imagining your eyes hitting these posts is enough to keep me in the “no-sugar” lane.…

The Chocolate Box – Day 6

February 19, 2018 | Danielle | Cancer Survivorship | 0

Yesterday was hard, and for no particular reason. But out of all 5 days of eating no sugar (and of course after I called the sugar fast “fun”), I really, really wanted to cheat. There’s a small square box of chocolates sitting on our kitchen counter. I bought it before the sugar fast began, and…

Today’s update – so far so good. I’m holding strong and sticking to my sugar fast. I’ve been surprised with myself because not only have I skipped over all candy, chocolate and cakes but I’ve not had any honey or pure maple syrup either – things I consider natural sweeteners. I am eating a lot…

I received two texts yesterday from two different friends wanting to join me in the sugar fast. If you too are eliminating sugar from your diets for the next month – let me know! And welcome! I didn’t just love hearing from friends, but I loved how one of them put it, “I know I’ll…

Thoughts and Prayers – Day 3

February 16, 2018 | Danielle | Cancer Survivorship | 0

Without thinking, I almost ate some Frosted Mini Wheats yesterday afternoon. I was hungry and I hadn’t had much to eat. A creature of habit, I opened the cabinet and had my outstretched arm nearly gripping the orange box when it registered – there’s sugar on them. I put the box down. This happened again…

Sunshine over Sugar – Day 2

February 15, 2018 | Danielle | Cancer Survivorship | 1

In full disclosure I should tell you I’m not feeling on top of the world, so most foods – including sugar-filled deliciousness – didn’t look appetizing yesterday. But nonetheless, a full day without sugar during my 45 day sugar fast is a win. The fact it was Valentine’s Day and no pink candy hearts, iced…
