"This first week has been interesting.  I am not 100% clear on the rules.  I am eating real food but what of milk?  I know Eric drinks his coffee black, but dude, I drink Cuban coffee and to part with the "leche" in my…"

The end of my twenty-day detox

Well, I made it! What I thought was impossible became possible! I thought there was no way I could live without sugar, no way! My family thought I was crazy, co-workers would look at me and say "why are you doing this to yourself?" I would answer, "because I am tired of feeling like crap!" I did not realize the side effects of sugar! I knew when I would consume a pop and candy bar mid-afternoon I would feel groggy and tired, but I didn't have sense enough to realize the culprit was the sugar.…See More

"Eat some protein, that will help the craving and focus on how good it makes you feel to have this discipline of not caving.  It is this FEELING that ultimately catapults you to what you really truly want."

I'm 8 days in the sugar detox. I haven't craved sugar until TODAY! And, I would love a Pepsi, some ice cream from Braum's, chocolate chip cookies..my mouth is watering just thinking about it. DON'T CAVE!  

Nutrition

I badly need to improve my eating habits. Food is my weakness! I want to do the twenty-day sugar detox; does the detox include artificial sweeteners such as Stevia? How about gluten-free? Is this a good diet for runners? And how about beans like kidney and black, is it okay to eat them if they're canned? I've always heard you should eat fresh, frozen, then canned if you have to. If anyone has any suggestions to nutrition, I would greatly appreciate it! 

Half & Half Trail

Posted on December 17, 2013 at 8:34pm 2 Comments

This 13.1 mile trail race was certainly a learning experience for me. Earlier this year in July, I ran a 5 mile trail, and enjoyed every minute of it, and since then I have eagerly wanted to trail run again. The opportunity came about, and I took happily took it. Race day came; I was nervous because I knew I would be running along with experienced runners. I wasn’t running this race for time but for the experience and enjoyment. The gun fired.  Up the hill and through the woods on a trail…
