Will Power Fail – Sugar Detox Update – Week 3

Ok Ok I will come clean.  I cheated this weekend a little bit.  We went out for Yakiniku and I simply couldn't resist using Soy Sauce to dip the meat into and today I finally gave in to the crunchy carb craving and finished off what was left of a small bag of Japanese rice … Continue reading Will Power Fail – Sugar Detox Update – Week 3
