Since February is the shortest month of the year, I pick that month to try a different challenge. Lately, I’ve been addicted to sugar a little more than is normal for me and definitely more than is healthy. So I knew I wanted to give up sugar (in the form of dessert, sugary snacks and beverages, not in general cooking). I also knew I wouldn’t stick to it on my own.
Give Up Sugar
So I asked if anyone in my classes wanted to do it too. A handful of people agreed (there was no coercion) to join me. Then I posted about it on Facebook. And though a number of friends turned me down, a number also said yes. We have about twenty people holding strong to no sugar for the month.
And it’s been a help, just knowing that I’m not doing it alone. Having someone besides myself to hold me accountable. I definitely would have grabbed a handful of chocolate chunks on day one, two and three if I didn’t know there were people along for the ride with me.
In life it’s always good to know you’re not alone. And having a team is always helpful.
It’s never too late to join in the fun!
