IMG_2908 No Sugar. A Reflection. 

Hi my name is Lauren, and I'm an addict. I am no stranger to addiction of all forms. I however, was unaware that I am addicted to sugar. I guess how would I have known unless someone stopped me and told me how bad it was for me and challenged me to stop eating it. 
Before we started this challenge I tried to kick the sugar on my own. I would make it for about a week and then binge on anything I could get my hands on. Of course I always felt like crap afterwards, both physically and emotionally. So when Lisa posed this challenge I decided that this was going to be it. I was going to be committed. I was going disciplined. I was going to be stretched, and I WAS going to grow.  I want to grow in all areas of my life. What frustrates me the most is that most of the time I feel so weak. I want to stop eating sugar, but I don't. I want to do my homework, but I don't. I want to be disciplined, but I'm not. Well, enough! I just watched the movie The Peaceful Warrior one of my favorite lines is this, "What's the difference between knowledge and wisdom? Wisdom is doing.". Wisdom is doing. I need some more DO in my life. So this month that's what I did. I took the challenge. I was committed. I was disciplined. I was st retched, and I DID grow. What's next?
