Ironically, I had to have a scar revision from last years surgery and it hit right around when this years StrikeSugar challenge began. I was in the regaining my energy to exercise phase when it began. I was afraid I couldn't get my cardio up where it needed to be, but thought there is never a perfect time in my life to StrikeSugar. I love it too much. Don't get me wrong I've gotten a lot of sugar out of my life, but as you can see from my previous 3 posts it's not out completely not even close.
So, I joined the StrikeSugar challenge on FB. Still have my lesson plan all printed out and ready to go from last year. The first week was not too difficult since I already really watch my sugar and simple carb intake. Cutting it even lower didn't cause me headaches, or mood swings, but for a few in the group they were having such a hard time. They were cutting cold turkey. Brave brave women! I had to gradually get my diet worked around to Eating Clean then try the Strike Sugar program. It's been a 3 year learning lesson for me. The other gals a 4 week learning lesson. Now the Strike Sugar program didn't come up until last year. I could have done it at the 2 year mark if I'd have been healthy enough to do it. I am now.
Buckwheat porridge with mixed berries. I froze a couple servings of this. It was very good cooked with spices that really added a lot of flavor to the porridge. It is a bit gummy, so I eat it with a dollop of Greek yogurt. Perfection.
I think what's been fun about this Strike Sugar Program is seeing all of the creative ways to get simple sugars out of ones life. I've lost 8 pounds to boot.
