Stake meet ground

My stake in the ground:

1. No more sugar outside of special events (such as oneĀ 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.

That’s all.

    OK, so I broke on the FB thing already, but for good cause. I misunderstood something one of my friends said and thought that he said his son had proposed over Facebook. It was actually over Facetime (and there’ s a legit reason behind it). But I ONLY looked at his page! And there were no updates! Stop judging!

    Now I’ve broken the sugar thing, too. Oh well. It was for a good cause, though. I was being treated to lunch, so I got a soft drink. But I’ll get back on the horse.

    OK, so I broke the FB thing again today, but again with good cause (mostly). My sister had a baby early. Seeing pics of the new nephew is as good a reason as exists for Facebook use.

    Reduced sugar usage continues unabated (other than the mention above).
