Been doing a lot of research lately on sugar…it started a couple years ago…then lately again when my daughter’s teacher asked us to send in doughnuts and juice in for the class breakfast…so I can’t stop thinking about it. Google sugar and the effects. Google no sugar. There’s so much info out there, yet I can’t stop. Sugar is everywhere and even though I want to say no, I don’t. I need a reason (well, I have many, but that hasn’t stopped me) to cut it out. And maybe you do too. I need accountability. Maybe you do too?
So I’m thinking of going mostly sugar-free and alcohol-free for the month of January. Sounds good now. Probably won’t sound so good about three days in…
Anyway, how about hitting the re-set button in January? Would you be in? You have some time to think on this. But here’s what I’m thinking: When you go all or nothing, it’s a bit extreme, and it’s easy to get discouraged (I know because I’ve tried this numerous times); but what about going back to the good ole 80/20 rule? As in, I do what I should do 80% of the time, and the other 20%, don’t worry so much.
How about a month long re-set? Workout 2-3 times a week with no sugar and no alcohol at least 80% of the month? Here’s what that could look like:
- Workout Tuesday and Thursday at 5:30am for 30 minutes
- Saturdays at 9:00am optional.
- You commit to no sugar, no alcohol, with one free night/meal each week? Could you do that?
- We would start the eating part on January the 4th, workouts start Tuesday, January 5th and go throughout the last week of January.
