The Beat the Sweet Challenge!

Okay, it's official: I now need to come up with a month-long project every year. Two years ago it was the Techno Quaresma, last year was the memorable Data Month, and this year's is the...


The rules are as follows:
  • Nothing sweet whatsoever. No candy, soda, sweet cereal, etc., obviously; but also no honey, sugar-free stuff, or anything that has more than 3 grams of sugar per serving (basically Grape Nuts and under). Fresh fruit is fine; juice and jam is not.
  • General healthiness-feeling, cravings, and energy levels will be documented daily. Weight would also be a fun thing to measure but I don't have a scale.
  • It will go for one month, starting January 13 at 11:59 AM. and ending on Valentine's Day at 12:00 AM.
  • Condiments, such as barbecue sauce, is fine as long as they're used sparingly.
  • Milk is fine, even though it has quite a few grams of sugar.
From certain podcasts and things I've listened to lately, it'll really be interesting to see what happens. Will I have loads more energy? Will I feel stronger, more resolute, determined, and aggressive? Will I lose weight? Sleep better? I'm anxious to find out.

Everything starts tonight. I'm partaking of my last pieces of sweetness during the day and having a soda to kick things off. Then the challenge begins!
