nosugartonight I've been hearing a lot of people wanting to eliminate sugar from their diets as an attempt to get healthy.  I applaud all of you and trust me when I say this, you'll find new energy, your mind will be clearer and generally you'll feel happier and healthier.  But I'm also going to be perfectly honest with you right now.  I ate 4 mini chocolates today. It wasn't a brilliant move on my part as 10 mins later I felt like I wanted to go to sleep under my desk, but it happened and I'm not going to beat myself up for it OR give up on the rest of my day. The great thing about eliminating crap from your diet is that you get such a buzz from clean eating that consuming anything else, pales in comparison. What a great place to be right? So as you're thinking about what to have for dinner tonight. Go healthy and give it up sugar. Sugar is soooooooo yesterday.

Photo cred Cat I woke up this morning and had my blog entry all written in my mind.  Simmah had inspired me to write about the magic of grinding your own herbs (an entry I will write this week) but I was totally distracted by an equally inspiring text message from Lisa.  It said: "How was your smoothie?" Now to give you a little context, I've been feeling rather exhausted, lazy and uninspired as of late. So what was the first thing to go?  Answer: My daily smoothie.  Admittedly, the worst thing to go as it's my essential fuel for the day. There I was, last night, lamenting about my general malaise to Lisa and she verbally kicked my ass into gear and told me to make a damn smoothie already. That brings us to this morning. I did just that - I made my smoothie and I'm buzzing - quite literally.  My point is you need friends/family that understand and support you.  Not everyone does understand my want to eat cleaner but Lisa does and she's always there with words of encouragement when I need them.  Thanks Lisa - I love you Biz. So if you don't have like-minded friends and family shoot us an email and we, THE GOODS will be there for you.
