Not Just A Blonde

We are "Not Just" who we seem to be on this Earthly plane, but so much more. We are ALL children of a loving God who is calling us home to Love. This blog is dedicated to those of us on that journey together…

My 18th day proved to be quite a bit easier than some of the rest. I’m much more at ease in eating unsweetened foods and more comfortable with my options. I’m not nearly as stressed about trying to figure out what I can eat and what is on my forbidden list. This makes me much …

Day 17 of my journey is done!  I ate no processed or artificial sugar, so it was a good day. I still have cravings however and wonder how long do I have to go sugar-free before they will stop! I’m wondering if I would need to stop ALL forms of sugar and maybe even ALL …

16 days sugar free! I’m over half way through my sugar-free 30 and I’m still slightly struggling but becoming more comfortable within my discomfort. I am also starting to realize I may never be a poster girl for sugar-free living…I just love love love sugar too dang much! 😝 😉❤️Ann

Whoo! Hoo! I’ve made it halfway to my original goal of 30 days without sugar! It has now been a total of 15 days without processed sugar* (including corn syrup, honey and agave) and the journey continues. I definitely felt an increase in cravings on day 15 despite taking my Candida supplement. I realize though …

An update for those of you following my (processed) sugar-free journey: Yesterday was a special day as days go… it was my 18th Wedding Anniversary. To celebrate my hubby and I went out to eat at Outback Steakhouse and had a wonderful meal! I had a huge slab of beef, a baked potato with extra …

I’ve made it 13 days (processed) sugar-free! Today was no harder, but no easier. I definitely am becoming more and more aware of what foods have added sugar and what don’t. I’m also learning of new things to enjoy that are sans sugar, so that’s cool. 13 days of learning how much I depended on …

I’ve officially made it a dozen days without processed sugar and sugar substitutes! I’m noticing how I still tend to gravitate towards carbs and I wonder if that will EVER change?! What is with my biology that carb loaded foods just sound more appealing?! I dunno, but they do. Still, breaking the habit of eating …

Today marks day 11 on my processed sugar-free journey. Some moments are easier than others… mostly it is still hard. I went to a health food store and purchased a supplement that is supposed to help take away these ridiculous sugar cravings (aka Pink Walrus/Starbucks cravings). I look forward to seeing if it will indeed …

So maybe I DO have a bit of a BAD attitude! There is something very therapeutic and indulgent in being perfectly honest… 10 days down and being sugar-free sucks! Right now it is just not good. Blah. Bleck. Booooring! I honestly feel sorry for myself. I’m wondering if this was a bad idea.  10 days …

Today makes 9 days without processed sugar, sugar substitutes or corn syrup! 👏🏼 Today was absolutely easier and I give myself credit for that by being prepared with multiple high protein and sugar-free food items available to me and within reach! I’m still craving sugar and sweets but it’s at a more tolerable level and …
