Day 27 of Our Sugar Detox!

1 Comment 07 May 2010

27 days of  eating with awareness is amazing!
Now what??

My story part 2:

I went on sugar detox last April on till September. During that time, I truly felt absolutely amazing. My mind was clearer. My eyes seemed wide opened all the time. I always thought that I needed a sugar snack for a “pick me up” but it was the exact opposite. Its was the lack of sugar that kept me  feeling refreshed, never going into that “slump”- (for me it was at 5:00 pm- when I would search for anything to get me thru the evening.)
Even though detoxing from sugar gave me an incredible boost of everything good, I wanted to know, for myself, that I can eat a portion of desert or sweets and not over do it. I intentionally re introduced sugar back into my body! I always envied people who took a bite of cake and pushed the rest aside, not wanting anymore. Or the person who can have a few M+M’s and feel satisfied. I wanted to be that person. So..I experimented from September until April in that manner. Testing the waters so to speak on where I wanted sugar in my life.. and with what kind of balance.

I enjoyed dabbling on sweets. Purposely taking a piece of chocolate at a wedding and a slice of cake on Friday night. I wouldn’t be happy with myself if I knew I couldn’t control myself in that fashion.
So how do you think
I did?

Honestly, some days were good and somedays weren’t. But, at the end of the day I felt I was cheating myself out of how I really wanted to feel. Its important to me, to eat whole clean foods that aren’t filled with ingredients that I have no idea what it means. In exactly a years time, I felt the difference of what it means to feel “clean” and what it means to feel “filled up with stuff.”

With this knowledge and experience, I can answer what my ideal is in relationship to Sugar and health and wellness.
It is OFF SUGAR for SURE.. 99.3/4 percent of the time. 1/4 percent is maybe for an occasion that I care to have something with sugar ingredients. The reason I am putting in that 1/4 percent, so when an occasion does arise that I want something indulgent it won’t feel like I am breaking a rule. An example would be to have a bite of my moms cheese cake. But, it will be on an extremely rare occasion because my mom hasn’t made cheese cake in over 10 years!

SUGAR DETOX has made me so happy, I want to continue for the rest of my life!

What is your ideal? Whatever it is you DESIRE you can ACHIEVE!

Drum Roll Please…..
This Thursday May 26 is….the Day we are weighing our self! E- mail me ur results! We can post how much we all lost collectively.

Day 22!

2 Comments 07 May 2010

Did you know that it takes 21 days to form a habit?  Habits are created by repetition. The best way old habits may be broken is to form new habits, to counteract and replace the undesirable ones. Form new mental habits paths over which to travel, and soon the old ones will become less distinct.

So, congratulations! You went thru the hardest part of “sugar Detox”— the first 21 days. The next week is going to be so easy.

Most of us became accustomed with what to eat and not eat.  Some became frustrated because I didn’t give out a “diet plan.” But if I did that, then you will always look for me for support. The people who give out diet plans are usually the ones who want to make money.  I would rather give you tools for life and learn what makes your body feel as good as can be. Granted, it may take a few trials and errors, but at the end of the day you will have a way to eat for the rest of your life.

I keep on repeating myself, but I am so ecstatic about what we are doing.  I am so energized by everyones excitement. I will give you a few examples; I was running down Ocean Parkway and I passed a good friend of mine, Flo Tebele on the other side. She hollers out from across the street, “I’m on the detox!!”  I big smile spreads across my face.  Another friend confides in me that she bought whole wheat food for the first time in her life. I instantly glowed.

And another close friend, Celie Haddad whispers in my ear that she is on the “Sugar Detox since she became influenced in August! That’s almost 10 months! Celie is going to share her story with us on May 7th, our celebration day.

Speaking of celebrations, my birthday is on Saturday May 1. I so want to plan a birthday party for myself, and I would want nothing more than to share it with you! (I need to figure out a way to do that!)  I guess, Eddie will just have to do! (Though he’s not sugar detoxer) and no birthday cake for me! Don’t feel bad, I am ecstatic to say no!

Detox day 19!

No Comments 07 May 2010

On my first e-mail to you I posed a question, “Can you go a day, a week, or how about a month with no sugar?” Well, most of us completed a day, lots completed a week, and can you believe it…. So many are approaching 1 month goal mark!

Today, on day 19, we can look back and say, WOW! We can start feeling that proud feeling of accomplishment that we get when we do something so terrific for ourselves.

Though, I believe the greatest accomplishment is believing in yourself and saying “I think I can do this!”

Below is a famous poem by Walter D. Wintle that has helped, and continues to help me, to achieve higher in my goals.

Thinking

If you think you are beaten, you are,

If you think you dare not, you don’t;

If you like to win, but you think you can’t,

It is almost certain you wont.

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost,

For out in the world we find,

Success begins with a fellow’s will-

It’s all in a state of mind.

If you think you are outclassed, you are,

You’ve got to think high to rise;

You’ve got to be sure of yourself before

You can ever win a prize.

Life’s battles don’t always go

To the stronger or faster man,

But soon or late, the man who wins

Is the man who thinks he can.

Detox day 11 and 12!

Detox day 11 and 12!

No Comments 07 May 2010

Tonight I felt the support of my “email. buddies” which is you!
My son Harry brought home my favorite- you know it… Carvel ice cream-perfectly melted, vanilla mixed with chocolate. Normally I wouldn’t waver, but tonight, Harry was on his way leaving to Israel for the next few months.  I was happy that he was going, to learn in a Yeshivah, but of course sad. Even though my house thank G-d, is super busy with a teenagers, toddlers and grand kids- as all moms know, each child adds something special.  With Harry about to leave for his flight- I was feeling the need for comfort food, aka-Cookies! Chocolate!
Of course I passed it up. Not because I would gain weight, or turn back into a sugar addict if I indulged a little. But, because MY WORD is POWERFUL. What I say means something. The way we train our bodies to be strong by doing, let’s say, push-ups or squats, we can also train our brain to be strong as well.
Understanding that I have the power of my thoughts was the most important thing I learned last year on my sugar challenge. I know I will use that knowledge for the rest of my life as I encounter different challenges, self-inflicted or not.
For example, the fitness enthusiasts who are receiving this e-mail can testify that at some point in their life they decided to reap the benefits of exercise for their bodies. These women actually trained their brain to know, every morning “I exercise, no matter what.” One of the more powerful tools that we are all experiencing together is the power of OUR WORD. We are declaring as a group that we are not going to eat sugar for 30 days-no matter what. I of course passed up on the urge for the sweets! We gave our word, we are training our brains and thought process. We are feeling powerful because we are allowing ourselves to have the power of choice!

What we DESIRE we can ACHIEVE thru the POWER of our WORD.
Thank you “Detox Buddies” for being there when I needed you most!

On another note; one that is on a grand scale for me; is what this newsletter is doing for me.

As you know, I have been teaching fitness-based classes for 20 years. I worked hard each and every day. I always felt as if I was only as good as my “last class.”  It was an awesome ride, though thoroughly exhausting! Via your responses I feel as if I could do anything. My love for empowering women with health and fitness is endless, but it’s truly because of you, that I realize that potential.

Below is a response that simply reminds me that its all worth it!

“I have to tell you that thanks to you and your motivation that I’m on this sugar free diet. As you already have been hearing from others, it has led me to eat healthy through all my meals as well. I haven’t been committed to such a healthy lifestyle since I was a teenager (before all the kids started coming along). Now at 40 you realize that pounds don’t shed so easily, and you fear that your at risk of inheriting your parents health diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressures…etc. The only way to fight them is through a healthy lifestyle. So hats off to you for all the encouragement because looking at my parents health history I’ll need all the help I can get.”

More Tips:

“I found at Moishes a great no sugar and low fat and organic and delicious cracker flats by Aunt Gussies. It comes with raisins and cinnamon that can satisfy the craving for a cookie. It comes in many other smart choices too.” – Thank you Maggie Bawabe for a great snack tip! (and thanks for all your nice messages!)

Here is another great idea from Stacie Dana;

“Buy a rice cooker! While you are getting dressed after exercise, your brown rice is being cooked!”

Send me YOUR great ideas!

“To my “Detox Buddies”

I was successful on Day 11 and 12- though I almost wasn’t. My mind feels good, actually very good. I feel clearer and not as bogged down.

As for my body, I don’t feel like that I even lost a pound, (I know its not the focus, but it would be nice to have loose skinny jeans!) but in Yoga today I felt extra flexible- I totally put the “Sugar Detox” accountable!

Till Tomorrow! P.S.- send me tips that I can share with others! LUV and HUGs, Sari

Refreshing Sugar Free Grapefruit Granita

1 Comment 07 May 2010

This granita recipe is so simple and refreshing.
Typically you would use a sugar syrup with fruit, but this is simply fruit.

  1. Juice a few grapefruits or oranges
  2. Pour into a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish; cover with plastic.
  3. Freeze until mixture begins to set, about 30 minutes. Scrape icy particles from sides, stir with a fork, and return to freezer.
  4. Repeat scraping and stirring every 30 minutes until mixture is frozen with a grainy texture, 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
  5. You can add a kick to the granita with a splash of your favorite liqueur. I happened to have pineapple vodka and it was great. experiment with what ever you have.
  6. Garnish with fresh mint.
