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

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 4: Good News. Bad News.

Lady Sisyphus embarks on a 30-day journey to no added sugar. Good news. I ate fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean protein. I didn’t eat too many calories. Bad news. I ate cookies. Too much added sugar. Will the good news outweigh the bad news? Probably not. Tomorrow is a new day.

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

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 3, Part 1: I am the One-Tenth!

Lady Sisyphus embarks on a 30-day journey to no added sugar. 9am. It is day three and I am one-tenth of the way into my no-added-sugar challenge.  Speaking of mileage, I am happy that I have put in 18 miles on my feet this week. There was a time when 18 would have represented the […]
