Sugar Fast

So we own a coffee shop (The Living Room Coffee House). I'm there a lot, obviously. 

Yeah, with Rise and Roll doughnuts, cookies, cupcakes and more delicious treats. I've been splurging a little too much on these things....

Plus, we have family events multiple times a month lately, which usually comes with dessert. 

I don't want sweets to control me. So I felt that I needed to fast from them the whole month of May. Cold turkey to get it out of my system. I feel better health wise as well. 

I'm 7 days into this and it's going well. Except for the cookies sitting in my kitchen that are for the coffee shop. But I've refrained. Plus we celebrated my sister, Lindsay's birthday over the weekend and I did not eat cake and ice cream. Woot! 

God is giving me perspective in this journey. I keep asking Him to search my heart and turn my desires to Him, in several areas. It's a process to orient your life around God continually. I'm thankful for His grace and power! 

I'll keep you updated. 7 days in and staying strong plus I'm in heavy weights right now as well. Getting ready for the summer :)
