My plan this week is to blog about the different changes that happened to my body over the past 100 days. and there were many!!
one of the biggest changes i have had over the 100 days is my body and brain having more energy.
this could be because i am sleeping better at night. this could also be because sugar just made me tired and gave me no energy.
before the challenge, i would barely be able to keep my eyes open when i got home from work. i would race to bed after the kids were tucked in. it was so difficult to enjoy the boys in the evening because i was so tired.
one night in march i was telling my mom how much more energy i have at night. i do laundry, clean the kitchen, wipe bathrooms down... i told her i thought it was because of my student teacher taking on more responsibilities in the classroom. she said she thinks it is because i am no longer dragging extra weight around. i NEVER even thought about that being a reason. but it makes sense. Nolan is a little under 30 pounds... i couldn't imagine dragging him around all day without a break. good point mom.
so giving up sugar has given me extra energy at night and i am a much more productive human being at home. this change has helped me be a better wife, mom, and teacher.
