I've done it. I've been off of refined sugars for two weeks now! Days 1 and 2 were the hardest, but it's as if Canada is my Promised Land and the things I've needed for my health for quite some time are all coming to pass now that I've moved up here - the strength to go without sugars, the strength to wean off of my most important pain med! I've come down from 3 pills daily to 1/2 a pill for the past week now, and again - it's been so difficult! But Heavenly Father has provided the strength, and the atonement of our Savior, Jesus Christ, is infinite and reaches down deep into my needs and desires - both of these desires being GOOD desires. I'm only down about 4 lbs. and I'm not feeling much better yet, but I'm excited for what the future holds. Especially because I'll be starting Shakeology here pretty soon! Truly, I'm SO excited for all the rich nutrients, healthy benefits, for my energy to come back which I haven't felt in years, for the inflammation to go down in my joints and muscles - everything!

On top of the health changes I've been making, I've been reading more - some dystopian young adult fiction, as well as a non-fiction autobiography by Al Fox Carraway called More Than the Tattooed Mormon (here) and it's so good. I resonate with it a lot as I'm a convert - just like Al - and her points and messages are just so good - I highly recommend it!

Dustin has been a great support in everything lately. One thing I really hold dear to my heart is how often he asks me how I'm feeling. It feels so particularly thoughtful to me that he's always asking it, and reminds me that he remembers that I don't feel well. He's also been mostly off refined sugars as well and is so supportive of the Shakeology because he trusts me and my decision to try it out! Especially because of their 30-day money back guarantee! Woo hoo!
