Remember how in this post I explained the challenge I was undertaking for 2011?
Well, I thought it was time for an update seeing as we have been through a month. (and a bit).
So, in all of January how many times did I not "eat like Santa" and have a sweet, sugary treat?
That's right, Not A One!
I am very proud of myself. and rightly so!!
When I wanted sweet I ate a date. (or other dried fruit) Or juiced some fruit and vegetables.
I haven't been eating less, just differently, and I do actually feel better for it, even with being sick for a good 10 days. Now to keep it up....
In saying that I must point out that February will be harder. I have to make cookies for M's birthday treat for school, cookies for her birthday treat for dance class, a birthday cake for her, as well as cupcakes for R's Dinner Party. But, I have thought that if I make tried and true recipes I won't need to taste the results to see how they work, well that's the plan anyway.
Shall I report back again at the beginning of March?? If you're interesting in hearing how I am getting on I am happy to.
