Hello!
So 2018 kind of ended a bit mixed. My 2 year old was hospitalised with bronchiolitis and specifically very low oxygen levels for 4 days and nights coming out just at Christmas Eve and we then had a stomach bug from hospital after. It made for a very grateful Christmas that we came out. Also, we have since massively re-evaluated our priorities and I will be using my phone a lot less making this more of a weekly check in.
Since 1st January we’ve been doing one month of no sweets whatsoever and it is going well. I’ve managed to do this within NoS only adding no sweets to the S days but only for this month. I feel extremely good about it and my body is thanking me for it. I had 3 days of sugar withdrawals after eating too much over the holidays and in hospital but since I’m doing fine. Although I do have the flu currently so have been eating plain nachos only yesterday.

Auto, yes like you we’ve been binge watching Marie kondo too and have tackled the toys and komono so far. Clothes this weekend. It’s such a lovely way of thinking of things.
Hope you are all doing well and to a happy and healthy new year!

Wow, that was a lot to deal with! Glad it's over and your little one is recovered.

After nine years, I, too, am experimenting with no sugar for the month after a brunch on NYD. I've been having some pain in my joints. I have no idea if this will actually make a difference but it's as far as I'm willing to go at this point.

Good luck with No Sugar! I did that last year Jan - March (literally no sugar, not even sugar in ketchup), if I remember correctly. I really enjoyed it, and it eventually led to more clear-cut and purposeful food choices. It was a great way to start the year.

Wow, I'm just going for no sweets, to clarify.

I’m with oolala, just doing no sweets as no sugar might be too much effort ha!
I will follow your thread as much as I can as interested how you do it.
Auto, so far the no sweets is going really well so I might also expand it and continue it until Easter but not sure yet as it might be too restrictive.

We are all down with the flu now. DD1 started nursery earlier in the academic year and we are getting hit with one thing after the other. But NoS is going well.

We're exactly in the same place, it seems - N is sick every two weeks, and brings us all kinds of germs from daycare. Exhausting time. Wishing you lots of energy! It's inspiring to hear that you stay on track despite the challenges.

Oh Imogen, it’s tough going isn’t it? Definitely not something I ever thought about when I saw other people raising kids - my siblings made it look so easy!
Thank you J!

Diet wise it is going well! Kindness wise too but within limits of recovering from the flu. Movement wise I had to rebook my yoga course to next month.

Oh, I hope you get to do your Yoga class, Tess! I am doing a yoga class for 6 weeks at work - part of the "wellness challenge" they do every January.
