When Sugar Treats = Happy Memories

It is that magical time of the year when the coffee shops get peppermint white-chocolate mochas on the menu.

20 Blog Followers – Thank You!

I started this blog less than a month ago. I started it so I could have a place to post my progress with my self improvement journey.

I have always had a sweet tooth. However, it has only been in recent years that the single sweet tooth has developed into a sweet mouth. I believe it came from stress.

Fitness Journal: Week 1

Day 1 (October 21, 2019) – Stuck with it on day 1! The only sugar I had today was 6 gummy worms after dinner (which is a huge decrease in what I normally have). It was also a deliberate choice, not a mindless snack or sugar craving breakdown. I had a breakfast of oatmeal, almonds,Continue reading “Fitness Journal: Week 1”
