My stake in the ground:
1. No more sugar outside of special events (such as one piece of cake on birthdays, one cookie on family night, whatever). In particular, no donuts, no soft drinks, no sweet cereals, no syrup, and no candy–especially alone/in secret. This one is needed for several reasons, but primarily my health. I think I’m pretty much accustomed to just having elevated blood-sugar all of the time–and from everything I can see, that’s just not good. I did “no sugar” for almost a week a while back, but fell off the wagon pretty quickly since I was looking at it as just one week. This needs to be a lifestyle change, I think, but I’ll give it a time-period for starters: Till the end of March. But the goal is to change permanently to consume very little sugar.
2. No Facebook this week, and less over all (install StayFocusd at home with 5 minute per day max for FB). Don’t use FB at all on phone, except for posting family-related stuff. This one is hard, but necessary. It’s a phenomenal time-waste, nets very little real value, and tends to irritate me/upset me.
I’ll check up here weekly on Mondays until the end of March. Dates needing a post/comment: March 3, 10, 17, 24, and 31.
