50 Days Sugar Free - a recap

So i've recently finished the 50 days sugar free challenge 

Let me just say it was HARD !! There are so many things that have added sugar, one thing this challenge has definitely made me aware of. 
I had a hard time avoiding all sugar, so i focused mainly on avoiding obvious sugar (cake, lollies, soft drinks ect), there were a few nights where M cooked an amazing stir fry using a store bought packet sauce mix, which has a teeny bit of added sugar...how could i say no to that, it was satay too & delicious. Mhhhhm could go some of that right now  

Another thing i noticed myself doing was eating anything & everything (without sugar) just to satisfy my craving, which didn't work & left me feeling bloated & yuck, due to that downfall i didn't see myself loosing any weight, so after 30 days i allowed myself to have sugar !! I've kept track of how often i eat foods that contain sugar & it's sitting around once per day. 

I'm glad i attempted the 50 days sugar free challenge, but i wouldn't do it again. Completely restricting any one food group is never a good idea, as your body seems to panic a little & have withdrawals. 

I think i'll stick to the adage of 'everything in moderation' 


Doing it Tough !


You may have noticed my recent absence ?
I've been having a hard time at work, well it's not my work anymore as i resigned

Tuesday was my last day & to be honest, it couldn't have come soon enough. I've gone through so many emotions with this role, when i began i was ecstatic i was ready for it to become my career. After a few months there is just knew it wasn't for me & that i wanted out. I don't want to harp on about the negatives, rather i'm chalking it up to experience & moving on with my life

On the Vogue forums lately i've been reading the Unexpected Awesome things about your job thread. I feel like i am one of them now, before i resigned i got offered a job at the local council ! The hours, pay & people are great. I can't even begin to describe how excited i am to be in this position !

So expect to see A LOT more posts from me, life is good x
