Catch up post

 I know the last time I posted was on Day 10 and today is Day 17......bad me!
 I have been keeping to under 30g of sugar a day...in fact most days I am around 15g of sugar.
 I had one bad day. When I say bad, I didn't eat anything on my NOT EATING list, I just ate a lot more than I normally do. I had so much stress the day before, which caused a bad night sleep, that day my Hubby left for the UK for a week...we experienced the heaviest snow fall since living here...it all added up to me eating more calories, but still my sugar stayed under 20g for that day.
 Last week I went back to gym to run on treadmill and to do the toning machines....but this week ( Its Wednesday ) I've not been as the roads are not nice to drive on. I did one Kettlebell class today - Cancelled my class last night due to the roads...I did one outdoor run with Hubby on Saturday, in the snow. Not easy to run in the snow as you have to watch how you step as its a little on the slippery side. It was lovely to run in such fresh air...minus 6 degrees......
 I've been without fruit for 23 days now....and must admit besides not having blueberries with my yogurt, I'm managing, but looking forward in adding Blueberries back to my menu after the sugar challenge

I was watching a program online from the Dr Oz Show.....Got some food tips that are GOOD and good for the no sugar plan....going to add a few. 
Coco Powder ( not adding this as have no idea where or how)
Adzuki Beans ( will look for them in the shops on Friday )
Pomegranates ( will see if in season on Friday )
Squash - not easy to find in Germany
Nuts and seeds ( have added those ) 
 I've been drinking 2 liters of water a day, my warm lemon water on waking, 2/3 teas, and cut back my coffee to one a day and not 2 or 3!
I weigh in again on Friday....

The way I see it, isn't necessarily the way you see it.

  1. Recently I have stumbled upon a curious article providing the analysis, conducted by nutrition scientists, on which elements are essential for keeping great shape and how they work - http://bit.ly/Qh9G8S. They also write a lot about pre-workout and post-workout nutrition. Very interesting information for all athletes.
