Month of May

Now I have the Arcade Fire song stuck in my head.  Anyway…

May started out brilliantly yesterday with a long run and another successful hockey game (sorry, Detroit fans…). 

I also joined in a challenge for May that a number of Facebook friends/fellow bloggers are participating in: the elimination of all recreational sugar use for the entire month!  My eating has been pretty good but I certainly don’t need the sugary snacks that creep into my diet sometimes.  So for the entire month, I’ll be taking a pass on my little dark chocolate treats, those slices of cake that follow me home from Whole Foods, frozen yogurt after a hard bike ride, and so on.  Eeeeeeek! 

2 days down, 29 more to go!  There might be a little sugar party going down on June 1st…

In other news, IT’S RACE WEEK!  I started pulling together my gear for packing and had a nice massage to loosen everything up.  My aunt will be doing the race as well and two of my cousins will be there to celebrate with us afterwards - it should be a fun weekend!

Count me in on the recreational sugar ban for the remainder of the month. I desperately need an intervention.

Good luck this weekend!

every time I see them Sharks I think about you guys. Some playoffs they are having!

Christi said...

Wow, congrats on taking the challenge to cut out sugar. That is awesome!

I hope you and your aunt have a great race this weekend!

There was a scary article about sugar in the New York Times. I haven't had a whole lot in the past 2 months but the challenge is energy bars/gels during workouts. Any ideas? It's a conundrum.

The little sugary treats are my huge weakness. But TWICE yesterday, I passed up a cookie with this post in mind. Apparently you have a good influence on me :)

Yeah Elayne that's why it's recreational use, I think - a lot of us really wouldn't know how to give up gels or sports drinks! I am enjoying Larabars since they are exceptionally simple with respect to ingredients and no sugar (at least the flavors I'm eating).

Hmmm I have to say, I'd give up sugar but I'm not quitter! :) What would I do around here if sugar was removed!

Good luck this weekend!
