The Sweet Escape (AKA 50 Days of Grey)
You guys!! I was so encouraged by the response from my previous post about quitting sweets/desserts where so many of you decided to join me in this crazy spell! I wanted to hug each of you. Thank you for being a part of this- doesn't it make it more fun when there are others in it with you? Not only more fun, but easier!
Let's do this.
I wanted to layout the basic structure of how I am doing the fifty days. Now, this isn't a program. It's not a club. It's not anything that you get a medal for making it to the end of. So feel free to add/subtract from below to make it fit for you.
Oh, and for goodness sake, if you are wanting to do this and it falls over your birthday- please take a day to celebrate and eat some cake to celebrate. (I would!) A blind eye and high five is granted for any needed special days. :) This is supposed to be a good thing- so use it as it is helpful for you when and where you can.
THE SWEET ESCAPE GUIDELINES
1. FROM JUNE 1 TO JULY 20, I AM NOT EATING DESSERTS, SWEETS OR CANDY.
2. I WILL EAT OTHER NORMAL FOODS AS I LIKE.
3. NO FORBIDDEN FRUITS. IN FACT, THEY ARE ENCOURAGED. THIS IS NOT A TOTAL PURGE OF ALL SUGARS- BUT A FOCUS ON REFINED SUGARS AND GIVING YOUR SWEET TOOTH A LITTLE DETOX.
So... those are pretty much the only rules I'm going with for the purge. Which for my life- will make a big difference. Since it is not a total exclusion of all sugars, I'll have to use my judgement on how some things may fall; however, desserts and other obvious sugary treats are out.
Easy enough? I hope so!
I'd love to hear what you'll do to make the fifty days fit your needs/life. This is going to be SO fun. Also, feel free to share in on the experience with the hashtag #AKsweetescape so we can all keep track of how it's going and support each other in the weeks ahead.
