Me

I’m dreaming of sugary treats…

sugarShortbread.

Turtle chocolates.

Birthday cake.

Sugar cookies.

Yep, I know it’s December because my house is full of sugar treats again.

And after only TWO days of eating small amounts of them, I have an upset stomach and a headache.

I need to eliminate more refined sugar from my diet. I know I won’t get rid of it all, but I’ve just read that the AHA recommends that women limit themselves to about 6 teaspoons of sugar a day, or about 100 calories.

So, I  just went and made myself a smoothie of banana, blueberries, strawberries, almond milk and chia seeds. The Christmas baking is still sitting untouched in the kitchen today.

Yay me!

But, I really love, love, LOVE Christmas baking so I KNOW I’ll be consuming more then the recommended 6 teaspoons a day of sugar over the next month.

Eating healthy around the holidays?

That’s REALLY hard for me.

But I’ll try and most days honestly, I’ll probably fail.

Welcome to my December.

The good news however is January is looking more promising…

Happy Sugar-Free New Year?

Honestly, I doubt it – but a girl can always dream.

Sigh.
