My name is Jenn Ferguson and I am a sugar addict.
For my entire life, I’ve been addicted to sweet treats. My biggest vice is chocolate. It’s rare for me to go a day without having at least a bit of chocolate (and some days much more than that).
Besides chocolate, my list of weaknesses include all baked goods, sugary cereal and sugary coffee drinks – because caffeine and large quantities of sugar is the best combination!
But right now, my kitchen is bare of all of these items and I’ll be holding off on drinking pumpkin spice lattes until October.
That’s because I’m going sugar-free for September.
Sugar-Free September is a challenge for you to give up added sugar for the 30 days of September to raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society.
The key part of that sentence is “added sugar”.
That means foods like fruit are still acceptable. They naturally have sugar, and I have a feeling I’ll be eating a lot of fruit this month.
I’m preparing myself for headaches, irritability and mood swings for at least the first couple weeks of September; however, I think it will be worth it for my own health and prevention against obesity and cancer, and also to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society.
I would love to be able to go the entire month with no added sugar, but for a donation of $20 I know I can purchase a golden ticket and have a “cheat”.
Are you up for the challenge? To better yourself and help others?
