Giving Up Sugar and Processed Foods For the FitSugar Give It Up Challenge

Give It Up: A Reader's First Unexpected Temptation

FitSugar reader Angelica is giving up sugar and processed foods for the Give It Up Challenge. So far, so good, but check out this test of temptation she faced earlier in the week.

I've joined Fit's Give It Up Challenge and I've said sayonara to sugar and processed foods for two weeks. I grocery shopped the day I set the goal so my meals have been extra fresh and delicious, and so far it has been a painless exercise. My first unexpected temptation came in the form of a salty bag of chips that came with my deli sandwich yesterday. They would have been a delightful compliment to a veggie sammie, but knowing they are the classic processed food trap, I left them in the office kitchen for someone else to snack on. Halfway through week one and going strong!

Way to go, Angelica! Don't just read about it, join the challenge. It's a chance to turn over a new leaf as the seasons change. Give up a vice or a bad habit for two weeks and see how your life improves. Tell us what you're giving up in the Get Fit For 2010 community group.
