Even though today is technically the last day of the Sugar Free Challenge, I am going to keep it up for the most part. I will allow myself some treats (hello wedding cake!) but I am addicted to this great feeling that I am sure is from not eating sugar. Combined with working out for at least 20 minutes every day, I feel amazing! My energy levels are high, I haven’t been getting the afternoon “crashes” that I normally get (as long as I eat enough calories in the day) and no more post-meal bloat.
Last night was super busy getting ready to head out of town this weekend so I was only able to fit in a 25 minutes yoga workout. Now that I have done Jillian Michaels’ Yoga Meltdown twice I am really starting to like it. I will admit that she annoys me a bit (drill sergeant much?) but it’s a good workout and that’s the important thing.
Yesterday's Sugar Free Meals
Breakfast- Plain yogurt with sugar free vanilla and banana
Lunch- Cauliflower Mac n’ cheese, salad, Ukrainian sausage (leftovers)
Dinner- Chicken and vegetable Tikka Masala and coconut rice (love!)
Snack- 6 crackers

I need to think of some other snacks because I am probably eating more fruit than I should be. I am going to stalk some blogs of the other Sugar Free Challenge participants and see what I can find.
I spent most of the evening packing (I only have one suitcase, 2 bags and a garment bag for a weekend trip). I like to be prepared and my workout gear takes up a lot of space! The workout challenge isn’t over for another 30 days!!
Have a good weekend!
