DAY 1 (my second day 1) OF NO SUGAR - Failed miserably!!!!!! I do have high hopes for Monday though :) (I can't start a no sugar thing on a Saturday right?!)

Friday, November 7, 2008

TUESDAY (Day one of no sugar) - Good, did not cheat!

WEDNESDAY (Day two of no sugar) - Good, didn't eat any sugar, had a headache, but did not cheat!

THURSDAY (Day three of no sugar) - CRAPPY!!! Went to a Birthday Party and ate all the yummy treats I could get my hands on! :) And oh where those Oreo and cream cheese balls dipped in white chocolate soooooooo good! It was all worth it :)

I am so mad at myself. So now, on FRIDAY, I start all over at Day one! Once again, good luck to me :(

OK BROOKE, THIS ONE'S FOR YOU! My last post consisted of me complaining about all the sugar I have been eating and the fact that I CANNOT STOP!! I have been thinking a lot today about this MONUMENTAL problem and I have decided that I will no longer be a slave to sugar. I know I am not the only one that feels this way :) I have never been one to stick to a strict diet, especially when you have to omit an entire food group, but I really need to do something. So I am choosing to post this on my blog to ensure a sense of responsibility to myself, to actually do what I say. So here goes..............................................wait for it...............................................................
I WILL NOT EAT SUGARY TREATS UNTIL OUR ALLEN TRIP TO DISNEYLAND FOR THANKSGIVING!!!!! Wow, that felt good! I'll let you know how long this lasts but I'm really crossing my fingers for this one!

Oh and by the way, Brooke, YOU are the cutest girl that I know and you are not allowed to be a part of this because you are pregnant and you have 3 children and you deserve to treat yourself to whatever you want. Now as for myself, I have no excuses!

Good luck to me :)


HELP! I seriously cannot stay away from the dang sugar! Ya know, I love Halloween but I sure could do without all the sugar. It didn't help me any by starting out the Halloween weekend by going to the Arizona State Fair and eating my, oh so delicious, FRIED Oreos! I know they're terrible but they are oh so good!!
When I looked at this picture I just laughed so hard because Dani wanted to go "rest her legs" but 2 seconds after sitting down she ran right back to me and said she was done resting and now looking at this picture I know why she was done so quickly. I mean look at this guy, does he n0t look a little scary to you?

On Halloween, Dani's class put on a little performance of some very cute Halloween songs. She did great!

Of course we couldn't miss the Halloween Parade! Here is Madi with her Wonder Woman pose.

And of course Dani as Super Woman. We called them the Super Sisters!

After the parade and Dani's performance, Jake and Dani participated in the pumpkin carving event. Dani was so proud of her and her dad's work.

That night Jake's parents neighborhood has a chili and fry bread dinner that we go to every year before we venture out do our trick or treating. Here are most of the cousins. I was really impressed with all the creativity this year for all the costumes.

We own a choo-choo train that the kids just can't get enough of! Thanks to their Grandad they arrived at the dinner in style.

On Saturday I woke up early to go to the gym to try and work off all the crap I ate and I came home to my wonderful husband outside feeding my kids their Halloween candy for breakfast!!

(I know, Kash looks awesome. It's a free-for-all when dad's in charge :)
