Day 5

Yes, I survived the weekend with no sugar!  It all comes down to habit.  I had plenty of opportunities to partake of many delectable desserts, treats, and candy!  We had parties with friends and family, a fun shopping outing with the girls where I even tried to order sugar free cheesecake and they were out!  Sunday night we played games and I still had loads of my favorite candy left over from 5 days ago when I started this 100 day challenge of NO SUGAR.  I’m keeping at it!  It’s always fun and motivating too when several people around me want to join in!

My life as always is very scheduled and busy.  It’s VERY important to have healthy food on hand at all times.  I like to make a BIG batch of something and eat it over 3 or 4 days.  I made a pasta salad that I ate plenty of all weekend and today I’m going to make a pot of SOUP!  It’s from a favorite website of mine called  I want to try the Moroccan Lentil Soup!
