Day 30 – No sugar for 30 days? That’s Saccharin!!!

Posted: August 25, 2015 in Shawzs 30 Day Sugar Sacking...


Boy, its been 30 days already? Gosh, that hardly seemed rough at all, could’ve done it in my sleep….not even really a big deal at…





Yep, 30 days have come and gone. And all in all, I feel pretty good! My constant ear infections seem to have gone away, I’ve got more energy for the kids..but the biggest thing is I don’t find myself craving the sweet stuff anymore.  Over the last 30 days I’ve been ice cream free, sugar in the coffee free, chocolate free Shawz…and it feels pretty cool to have made it.


Could I have done some things differently? Oh, sure…and going forward, I think I’m going to keep up the (mostly) mostly sugar free lifestyle. My sister has some excellent stuff on sugar, and how it affects our lives ( and has been an inspiration to me and a good chunk of the reason I tried this in the first place! With all I’ve learned from her, and from personal experiences during the last 30 days, I think the next step is to start to eliminate processed foods as well from my diet. I’ve noticed how a burger, or fries, or even a bag of chips will hit me like I’d just had an ice cream cone, and it turns out that there are some very basic reasons why that is. Don’t tell Jen that I finally see that she’s right though, she’s still my little sister…and that would set a bad precedent! 😉


So the Shawz 30 day Sugar Sacking Challenge is complete, but where do I go from here? Well, I still have that Marathon to train for in one year, I’ve got 3 kids who have gotten use to “Yes, I Have energy to play tonight” Daddy..and I’ve gotten pretty used to feeling pretty good off the sugar rock…so I’d say things are looking pretty darn good! Or, as my good friend Matthew Mcconaughey would say…
