No Sweets Challenge

Last week, we challenged ourselves to cut the sweets out of our diets. We seemed to have been stuck in a sweets rut with cookies and muffins often popping up in the office kitchen. Some office members even felt like they were addicted to the sugar they used as their afternoon pick me up, so it was good to take a break and take stock of what we were putting into our bodies.

The good news is that we made it through the week feeling great and enjoyed having fresh fruit waiting for us to snack on in the office. With all the fresh fruits available this time of year, it really wasn't too difficult to turn to watermelon and cantaloupe instead of cupcakes and brownies. For many, it was even a welcome relief!

The bad news is that the salt water taffy that showed up last week has been opened and is making its way around the office as we speak! It's all about baby steps, right?

  1. Its always hard to cut out sweets completely because you find that's all you end up thinking about! We are doing a different kind of challenge later this month -- the Hunger Challenge -- to see what it is like to live on the budget of a CalFresh recipient ($4.72 a day per person) for one week (Sept. 12-16). Feel free to join us!
