So, I am one month into the New Years resolutions and, so far so good. I am actually starting to enjoy running now, though I have a long way to go before a half marathon would be an option. I was a sprinter in high school so these long runs are hard to get used to but I'm trying, puffing away and dragging the feet at times but still moving forward.
One area that's hindering my progress is my diet. I have no problem eating healthy foods; I actually enjoy salads, fruits and veggies, even chicken on a regular basis. It's the SUGAR! Love, love, loooovvvee the sugar. I swear, it's like a drug, especially when I'm stressed or even bored I want something with the sweet stuff. However, I know this is so not good for me. Cutting out the soda would be a good start (yeah, I'm drinking a Dr. Pepper as I type..caffeine and sugar BONUS) but I also need some other good ideas for getting rid of my evil sugar demons.
Any ideas on some good ways to curb the sweet tooth? Any healthy alternatives?
Now I'm off for the evening run. Hopefully, the sugar high from the Dr. Pepper will make me swift and surefooted tonight. HA
