Your Moment Is Now

I'm not sure how you came across this post, maybe you subscribe, maybe you saw it on social media, maybe you found it in a Google search. (If you found it by googling shoot me an email I'm really curious how you found me. :) 


But regardless of how you wound up here-you are here. And I would like to take this moment to encourage you to take a moment to breathe.



I find that sometimes life gets so hectic and so rushed and so hurried that I literally forget to just stop and take a moment to breathe.


 Your moment is now.

Operation Sugar Detox

As most of you know, I have a slight  possibly major addiction to sugar.I didn't realize how many grams of sugar I was eating a day until I kept a log. Apps are great for this. Over about a four day span, I had anywhere from 60-120 grams of sugar EACH day. And no this isn't including Thanksgiving. This data is on a 'normal' day for me. Yep, that's a lot. Especially if you consider the American Heart Association's recommendations of about 30 grams a day for women to be the recommended allowance.

Yeah, that's a whole lot of sugar going on.


I eat a lot of sweets, but I found out that it wasn't necessarily the sweets that was the issue. It's everything else that I eat! Most of my food choices are high in sugar. With Diabetes on both sides of my family, it's time I reevaluated my diet.


So today, Monday, November 26, operation Sugar Detox begins. Am I cutting out all carb/sugar? Of course not! But the first week or two, I hope to keep my limit within 30-40 grams. I have a feeling it will be closer to 40 than 30. But after a couple of weeks, I hope to keep my daily intake closer to 30.

Wish me luck...
