Day 9-10-11: Can I Start Over? Yes I Can!

June 19, 2012


Lady Sisyphus embarks on a 30-day journey to no added sugar. A friend posted a piece from the Forks Over Knives website. The title pulled me in, “Does Willpower Hold the Key to Your Success?” I don’t know. Does it? I read it. I sighed. Same old. Same old. It’s all about choices. I know […]

Day 7: Laziness Leads to Failure

June 14, 2012


Day seven was a complete failure. Sure, it had some bright spots but overall – it’s time to pull the plug on it. Too much sugar. Not enough vegetables. Not enough real food. This is my food journey. Rinse and repeat. It started with a visit with a friend. She is a cook and had […]

Day 6: More of the Same Laziness

June 13, 2012


Lady Sisyphus embarks on a 30-day journey to no added sugar. Day six was okay. It wasn’t stellar but it wasn’t a total loss. I started off with a great five mile run/walk in the morning. I ran (almost literally) into a posse of older women on bikes. Always inspiring. Foodwise, it was more of […]

Day 5: Is Good Enough Good Enough?

June 11, 2012


Lady Sisyphus embarks on a 30-day journey to no added sugar. Day five was better than day four. I didn’t get in as many vegetables but did manage to avoid added sugar. I didn’t feel like running/walking this morning but did it anyway. So it has been another day of non-perfection but perhaps that is […]

Day 3, Part 2: Have Plan. Will Travel.

June 9, 2012


Lady Sisyphus’ 30-day journey to no added sugar. Day three has gone well. It hasn’t been perfect but it has been another “good enough” day. I got in a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables. The only downside was a “convenience” dinner that contained 15g of sugar, most of which was added, not natural. That […]

Day 1: I Can Do Anything! I Can’t Do Anything!

June 7, 2012


Isn’t that the way it always is? You start something new and the first day is full of promise and excitement. So it goes with Lady Sisyphus as I embark on a 30-day sugar-free journey. Today should be easy. 6:30 am – I had cereal for breakfast. I need to put more thought into this […]

Pushing Sugar Stones

June 7, 2012


One of the benefits of temporarily living in a fully furnished apartment is the magazines. The last time I read a women’s magazine was when I visited my friend and she thoughtfully deposited some in the guest room. I devoured them!  So while I am not enjoying the transition of our impending move, I am […]
