I Gave Up Sugar...

By Shimmerofpink @shimmerofpink
Hellooo shimmers,
For lent I gave up sugar, no cakes, no sweets, no chocolate, no sugar! (except in fruit, thats natural sugar!).
But it wasn't just for lent. There is a charity that is for students, they are run by campus ministers, the one in Edinburgh is run by the most amazing six people ever! There are groups in multiple countries all over the world and this term we were raising money to send to the one in Mexico. The group in Mexico were raising money to build ten houses in a local village in Mexico. So all the money I would have spent on sugar and also some people sponsored me, I donated to the fund.
It was definitely a challenge cutting it out, the first week was the hardest and when others had baked and I had to decline it that was difficult, but I soon got used to it and those around me also knew that I was doing it and so would stop offering it to me! (also a few would bring alternatives, for example an apple made into a sweet!) This also made me appreciate my friends so much cause they understood what I was doing and supported me so much and I love them for that.
Easter Sunday came I ate sugar to my little hearts content! However, I actually did not miss the sugar. I loved the challenge but then it just became second nature not to eat it and I definitely felt the benefits. I definitely won't cut it out altogether but I am definitely cutting it down. Also I love baking too much for me to cut it out completely, although I could bake and others could eat!!
I Gave Up Sugar...(Baked last night...ooh how I missed you cupcakes!)
