30 Day No Sugar Challenge: Days 18 & 19

One word to describe these last 2 days: crazy.

One word to describe the next 2 days: crazy.

So, needless to say, I didn’t get a post up last night about my no sugar day!

Daily Recap (yesterday and today)

  • I made homemade granola bars yesterday.  I PROMISE the recipe said “granola bars” but I do have to admit they had sugar in them and really were more “dessertish” (is that a word?!) than “granolaish.”  I felt like I was cheating and I probably was.  The good news: I only ate 1.5 pieces.
  • I went to my grandmother’s house today, and that usually means I ingested chocolate of some sort.  But not this time!  I saved a LOT of calories by not eating sweets.  She had peanut M&Ms, regular M&Ms and some other little cookie thing sitting on the counter.
  • Amazed how my clothes are fitting looser merely by cutting out sweets!
