I have decided to stay off sugar for a month. Pre marriage days I had a great diet. I didn’t eat any kind of sweets, reduced sugar in my tea, cut out the carbs and exercised a whole lot. But after the wedding with the stress of moving to a new place and finding that the new place was filled with delightful treats, all the clean eating went right out the window. Over the past year my diet has fluctuated a lot. I felt pretty good before I went to the Motherland for a vacation. I was reasonably okay while I was there too. But I came back home with suitcases filled with deep fried goodies and a huge load of sweets. I then proceeded to finish off everything diligently. Now I am lugging around an extra few pounds that I could do without. The first day I decided to stop the eating and start the exercising I tripped over my own feet and sprained my ankle. Murphy’s Law literally rules my life.
So I’ve finally decided that I will start off with one thing at a time. The first round is exercising and cutting out sugar for a month. Since I intend to start this regime from Monday, I ended this week with two absolutely, mind-numbingly delicious cupcakes from Fairy Cupcakes. I honestly cannot stress how perfect they are.
Here’s to a sugar-free (and hopefully not cranky ’cause we already have PMS and God knows, if anything brings on the cranky its that) month!

Good luck my dear! Tea, nuts and Coconut oil are my friends when I get sugar cravings. Happy to share more tips with you.
Thanks! I’ve found that tea really helps!
I gave up sugar not too long ago and really, I haven’t looked back. I think you stop craving it, the less you eat. Aside from some dark chocolate and dried fruit, I have pretty much conquered my habit!
Wishing you lots of luck too!
I don’t think I’m up to your level yet. I almost reached out to a piece of cheesecake yesterday but thankfully managed to hold back. I also declined a piece of chocolate. That’s a new high for me!
