No Sugar Added

I may be crazy.  Maybe....Bwhahaha!   I have decided to go 30 days without sugar.  Why?  I can't really give you one solid reason!
Ok, I may not be able to give one BIG reason, but there are a couple of smaller ones.  One is that I haven't been happy with how I feel after I have a lot of sugar, especially at night.  My heart races, I can't sleep, and I feel pretty yucky.  That said, I looooove dessert.   Love love.  I come from a long line of very talented dessert eaters.  In fact, my grandpa used to say that a meal wasn't finished without something sweet.  I blame genetics.   :)
Another reason?   Baby weight.  I only have about a pound and a half left (I big deal) but I really want it gone.  My goal isn't weight as much as feeling fit, but I think this *may* jump start my losing that last little bit. 
I am not cutting out every sugar.  I still plan to eat fruit and I am not going to withhold bread or crackers (for example) if a bit of sugar is an ingredient.   I am a mom with three very little littles, I can't get too crazy.  Otherwise I will end up skipping meals altogether and that won't be good for anyone.  I am,sadly, giving up my Orgain protein shakes.  Those things have been key when I don't have time to eat.  The other thing is coffee.  You see, I don't drink coffee so much as warm chocolate milk with a splash of coffee flavor.  In preparation for giving up sugar I have been weaning myself off of caffeine.   I don't want to be homicidal ya'll.  The caffeine had become part of my new baby haze and with little Belle sleeping better, things are improving.  Who knows?  Maybe I will try it black!  Yeah, probably not.
Our adventure on the farm with Daddy's birthday cake was my last hurrah for the next 30 days.  Wish me luck, I am fully expecting a crazy sugar withdrawal person to be living in my body for the next few days.  Actually wish my family luck.  Anyone want to join me? It seems crazy!
