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…

Part of my spiritual journey is trying to live a healthier life. Last month I went 30 days without sugar. So now here I am experiencing life post sugar-detox… and what have I noticed?  Well, for one, I noticed the huge SUGAR CRASH that follows any indulgence of a highly sugary treat such as a …

It’s been a couple of weeks now since I concluded my 30 day sugar-free challenge and I’d like to offer you an update! I’m pleased to say that the 30 day challenge was indeed a success. I was being consumed by sugar cravings and eating a sugar dominated diet. I was addicted… and I believe …

Today marks the 30th day of my sugar-free challenge! I’ve almost completed my goal and will be going one additional day to cover that accidental sip that happened at the 2 week mark (see day 14 image for details๐Ÿ˜)! What a month! What a journey! I’ve leaned SO much about myself, about others, about food, …

My sugar-free journey is soon coming to an end and I am still finding I crave sugar. Everyday I continue to be acutely aware of what I’m not able to eat. It’s not as hard to resist though as saying no is almost a habit. I’m curious to see how I will continue once this …

Without my health, excess weight and food:drink cravings as distractions I can pursue my purpose and my dreams with confidence and without distractions! Big lessons I’m learning …

23 days done! Today I passed on pizza and homemade ice cream during our staff meeting at work… both sugar-infused and previous favorites of mine! I’m finding it easier and easier to resist sugary foods as I get closer each day to my 30 day goal! PS I enjoyed another latte today without flavorings! It’s a …

Today marks the 22nd day of my sugar-free journey. I’m doing okay avoiding sugar, but it’s clear that I am naturally, instinctively, and perhaps even habitually drawn to sugar. I’d settle for honey or agave even but in my original commitment to this challenge I gave up those two as well thinking it might help …

It’s entirely possible that I would never feel at peace without processed sugar in my diet. It is crazy to think that after 21 days of no processed sugar that I’ve noticed no immediate health or mental benefit of any kind… all I’ve felt is discomfort and subtle cravings.  I miss sugar. I REALLY miss …

Day 20 of my sugar-free challenge was pretty uneventful. I’m getting used to knowing which foods I can eat and what foods to avoid so when I get hungry it is easier to figure out what I’m going to eat.  I’ve been eating more salt I think because of all of the meat and cheese. …
