Kicking it up a notch
We have spent a good chunk of our time the past several months working to get our new boat blue-water ready. As we continue to do so, Rebecca and I are going to take some steps to see if we can get our bodies that much more ready too.
We all know that Rebecca is a workout fiend, and loves to eat healthy (which means that, largely, I eat pretty healthy too). For the month of November, kicking it up a notch, we are going to once again give up consuming any alcohol. Is that a coincidence given that our Canadian friends just left? Perhaps. 🙂
Additionally, we are going to try to eliminate processed sugar from our diet. As it stands, we never add sugar to foods that we prepare, nor are we real dessert fans. Sugar is, however, in its various forms, added to many (most!) prepared foods and condiments. Rebecca has removed all of the items in our pantry that have sugar added to them, and she spent a couple of hours grocery shopping yesterday for substitutes.
I’ve read that giving up sugar cold turkey can be quite challenging. You all may wish to avoid me for the next week or two. And if this blog is filled with crazy posts or rants, you’ll have an idea why.
