As I mentioned a few weeks back I have a few other challenges coming up in the next couple of months to keep me motivated and sane 🙂
First up, a no sugar 30 day challenge. Actually for me its going to a no processed foods challenge (and a bit more than 30 days, June 13-July 24th). I’ve got a pretty good grip on my sweet tooth and want to be able to indulge in homemade treats from time to time. However, I have a friend who is really struggling with her sweet tooth. I offered to do this challenge and at the end of the 30 days I’ll buy her a present (if she makes it…same thing goes for me). She is allowed one treat a week, so its not a complete deprivation. And while I’m not for extreme dieting, I do take exception in the case of sugar. In order to cut down the cravings and cleanse your body, I think you need to abstain and learn to appreciate natural sweetness found in foods.
Next up and a bit further away is the Tough Mudder.
This is going to be intense and I really need to figure out a good training program. Insanity, BodyRock, and Spin class have certainly helped with strength, and I’ve started to increase mileage again with running, but I don’t think its enough. I need to pump up the intensity 😉
