I've been a bad, bad blogger! No update since day 6 of the sugar free challenge. My apologies to you all. I guess the reason I haven't felt a compulsion to blog the last couple days is because, well... I've felt great! I feel like my body has completely adapted to no sugar, no caffeine and no dairy. When I weighed myself this morning, I was down 10 lbs from Day 1 of the challenge. 10 pounds in 10 days! That's like biggest loser style weight loss! I figure it was my body's way of saying "Thank you for not feeding me junk!" And just an FYI... Amanda from Run To The Finish is going to be having another Sugar Free Challenge coming up! So do yourselves and your bodies a favor and follow her blog and sign up for the next challenge! I know I am, with no cheating this next go round.
I've absolutely loved the results of this challenge. My energy has been amazing! My endurance has also improved! I went hiking/climbing in The City of Rocks National Reserve, Idaho and I only had to stop and rest once. We hiked probably 5x the distance I normally hike while there and I normally have to stop and catch my breath more than a few times. I will have a City of Rocks post coming up soon, promise! I'm in desperate need of a new camera, so my pictures are very much lacking as of late (aka nonexistent).
