yep I have stuck it out! 14 days—Sugar Free Me!

with No Comments

So Sunday I was reading aloud to my daughter–she has a concussion and needed to learn some material–a few cough drops–today a few more–but all in all low to no sugar for 14 days-Sticking with it to see how my blood sugar reading changes–next week the tough time will start–I will be traveling to Montana for the Cowgirls Vs. Cancer retreat with Big Sky Yoga. I am really looking forward to it. I can’t wait and I am already almost packed–I know what I am taking and I am ready to meet the other women on the trip.

After that I go to visit a friend in another town for two days then back home. The summer will begin in earnest at that point. If I can survive the traveling and the eating out I will be very proud. Celebrations are meaning something other than sweet treats to me.

Instead, of course, my beautiful Michel Cluizel 99% which I received in time to pack in my carryon…if it makes it that long. This package is almost…err… is empty now. Whoops! Lucky  for me I bought another bar. Since I don’t drink, I don’t have sugar, gluten or dairy I have CHOCOLATE!!!
I don’t think this is for everyone. It is for me. The dairy and gluten I had to give up to heal my gut after chemo. The sugar, well you know now why. Alcohol just never did anything really good for me and I could take it or leave it so I left it 26 years ago. 
I read fashion blogs so part of me is interested in telling you how and what I pack for this trip…I love to plan packing. It is part of the thrill of traveling for me. I imagine every day and what I will need and, most importantly, what I can live without. I pack lightly usually. The wrench comes when there is one thing I will have to do requiring one outfit that I can’t use for anything else. Like a party in NYC or a wedding or??? This time it is all about comfort, yoga, meditation and horses. 
Keep ya posted!
