I decided to stop eating sugar, it was in response at least 30 years of sugar
addiction and Lisa Ray’s Challenge for Crossfit Flagstaff – Stop eating
sugar! Taking out the bagels, breads, cereals, spoonfuls of jelly, chocolate
candies from candy bowls strewn about town, rice dream snacks, etc.cetera, was surprisingly
easier than I thought. When you are ready, you are ready. Doing it
in the context of Crossfit was the way I discovered I was ready.
I stopped sugar, the word was ZONE. Or PALEO. You need to
ZONE. You should go PALEO to get the true benefits! Go ZONE.
knew that was right. I didn’t doubt the wisdom. But for me, taking
all of that other stuff out of my diet was enough. ENOUGH! Don’t
PUSH me any further. I’m not ready.
don’t know how many months have gone by, but a new shift is taking
place. Apart from my beers and the occasional cheat day, I really have stopped
eating all that crap I used to call food. A kitchen sans breads, bagels
and cereals is normal. Eating with at least a nod toward zone is normal.
now, guess what? I’m curious! CURIOUS! What would happen if I
zoned? How will I feel, how will my body change? I don’t go
to crossfit daily, to say the least, but I adore everything about crossfit and
how it’s changed the way I feel about myself.. how I look and how I
act around a set of weights, pullup bar or a stopwatch.
will ZONING make even more of a difference? This enquiring mind wants to
I’m not sure of the exact start date yet, probably as of this coming
Sunday, my curiosity will have gotten the better of me and I will officially
start my own ZONE CHALLENGE.
else want to come along?

Ok, so I haven't posted since I have been gone to Montana and Calgary. Sometimes no internet, mostly no time. Oh the temptations!! I didn't eat any of this stuff above, but couldn't resist the birthday cupcakes below! Not with my nieces looking like they did! We all celebrated our September birthdays while we were together in Montana.
Sometimes, you just gotta live, huh Girls?
This one pretty much says it all…..on display and everything!
