Sugar Fast

For some reason this past saturday, while a batch of cookies and brownies were pleasantly baking in my oven to be happily eaten entirely by Lance and me(with ice cream on top), I thought- I need to go a 30 sugar fast! I don't think in the almost 25 years of my life, I have EVER gone that long without indulging in some kind of delectable sugary goodness! Yuck. I am also trying to lose my baby chub and be a little healthier on the inside. Lance and I usually have one "cheat" day a week, but for me that spills into other days and before I know it, I have only one "good" day a week! I know, I know a little treat every couple of days is fine BUT I don't eat just a little...like I said a batch of cookies, brownies, AND Blue Bell Icecream in two flavors was waiting to be eaten by only TWO people.

So yesterday(the 15th) started my 30 day sugar fast! I have recruited quite a few people. I figure the more people I tell, the less likely chance I have to cheat:-) My mom is on speed dial for when an evil sugar craving comes my way to ruin everything! She's there to yell at me to put down the cookie and walk away...knowing her though she might just tell me to eat it so she can cheat on the sugar fast too!
 Here are my rules(join it with me if you want and make it as strict as you want):


No: *treats(cookies, brownies, cake, shakes, ice cream, candy...you get it)
       * sodas, juices, any fluid with added sugars(includes diet stuff too)
       * jams, jellies, honey, natural sweeteners
       * Anything with added sugars

I'm also adding on anything with white flour, processed foods, fattening foods, etc...
Oh and one other thing...I DO get 1 meal a week where I can have a little indulgenc(still NO sugar). So I can have fajitas instead of grilled chicken and broccoli!(yipee?)

Good luck right? I'm already planning what my dessert will be on Valentines day.

Before I forget...








....I just wanted to share a few tidbits about my little loves. We finished 2011 with an adorable 2 month old(who in 6 days is about to be 3 months-AH!) and an adorable but slightly crazy 2 year old.


David: 2 years   28 and something pounds, 34 inces, and a big head

David has not slowly immerged himself into the Terrible Twos, he has dived into them! We once had a sweet, content, and somewhat quiet little boy...we still have a sweet boy but a hitting, tantrum-throwing, screaming, attention-seeking and sneaky little boy too! I have to say, as crazy as 2 year olds are, we have had so much fun with this turkey.

Nicknames: Bubs, bubbas, David boy, love muffin, buddy and more....
Fun facts:
* Talk ALOT
*loves Mickey Mouse
*still loves his blankies
*Starting to like more foods, beef jerky and granola as of late
*Wants to do things by himself
*Says, "Yokay?"( you okay?), when we cough or sneeze
*LOVES Gavin and smothers him with kisses and hugs all the time. He gets his feelings hurt when Gavin cries because of it
*Still loves being outside and running around
*Loves, cars, trains, animals
* Can work an ipad or iphone and often steals them from Lance and me
*Hits when he's mad, happy, sad,etc. Any advice?
*Loves going to Nursery at church. It is the only place he doesn't hit(?)
* Loves to be around other kids
*Can point out the moon, sun, stars, and just about everything else outside
* Says his prayers now(with help from mom and dad:-) ) and they are the cutest thing ever
*Makes the funniest faces
*Tells us right before he goes to the bathroom:-)
*Shares with Gavin...he likes to put his sippy cups and apples in Gavin's mouth....yikes
*Steals blankets from Gavin when we wont give him his
*Can open almost all doors(scary!)
* Lays down on the ground when we are trying to make him do something he doesn't want to
*Love music. He says, "song?", when he wants us to turn on some music
*Eats dirt and chalk and thinks its hilarious
*ETC........

This will be a fun and busy year with this little guy!




Gavin: 2 months   10.4 lbs, 23 inches, and a small head

Gavin looks a lot like David did as a little babe. He is a great baby most of the time and likes to be held all of the time(which is not new to me, David did the same). He will smile and coo at just about anyone! Gavin is getting very used to being beaten up by David. David cannot wait for him to get bigger so he can have a playmate!

Nicknames: G-man, Gavin boy, toots/ toots magee, baby(David's name for him)
*loves to be held, and it must be while standing:-)
*smiles and coos all the time! he is starting to giggle and "talk" now-super cute!
*wearing 3-6/6 month clothing now. 0-3 months are too short for his arms and legs.
* has super long hands,feet, arms, legs:-) he's one long string bean
*green eyes but looks like there is a possibility they might turn brown
* loves David's kisses and loves when they are soft
*starting to like the stroller which helps mom alot:-)
*does not like hats
*does not like passies
*sleeps wonderfully at night
*has bad bouts of crying alot of nights for about an hour
*super gassy:-) this kid can burp and, in the words of my dad, flatulate all day long
*first airplane ride was at 2 months, and he slept the ENTIRE time-yay!
*perfect!


Lance and Jenny Leigh: old enough          trying to lose pounds and gain muscle:-)
