Good Bye (For Now)!

 

For those that may still be visiting my blog I am sure you have noticed that I have not posted for almost a month now.  And, before that also noticed that my posts were becoming less and less frequent due to my now VERY busy schedule at work and continued busy schedule at home.

It saddens me to say that I am going to have to say Good Bye (For Now) as I just do not have the time in to devote to my blog right now, despite my efforts over the past month.

If things calm down I will return as I loved blogging so much and it helped me keep on track as well but I can’t give any dates on that right now.

I wish all of you the best and thanks for reading in the past!  =)

Anti-Sugar Ads

Just saw this ad on AOL on “Anti-Sugar” and I have to say it is about time our government get this message out to a country that is addicted to the stuff!!!!!!!!!!

Check it out your yourself and be sure to watch the VIDEO:

Health Officials Unveil Explicit Anti-Sugar Diabetes Ad

Now I am not saying I NEVER drink the stuff as I do, however not on a daily basis and I also raised my daughter to only to drink the stuff “occasionally” as well. 

The main drink sources in our household are as follows……

  • WATER – NO grams of sugar!!!
  • Iced Tea (made with a little sweetener) – No grams of sugar!!!
  • Apple Juice (1 small glass a day) – 14 grams of sugar, 4 ounces
  • Orange Juice (1 small glass a day) – 14 grams of sugar, 4 ounces
  • V8 (1 small glass a day) – 12 grams of sugar, 4 ounces
  • Milk (mainly with cereal)- 11 grams of sugar, 12 ounces

So as you can see most of the above are pretty low in sugar and the top 2 that we drink the most have NO SUGAR in them at all!

Compared to 1 12-ounce can of soda having 42 or more grams of sugar I think we do pretty good and even though the “juices” do have a few more grams of sugar then I would like we still drink them as they do offer many vitamins (unlike soda) and are consumed in moderation (always less than 8 ounces per serving) and the sugar found in milk is all natural, not added so I don’t feel bad about that one. 

And, yes, we do add “sweetener” to our Iced Tea and yes there is a debate on if the usage of sweeteners are safe, but we drink this in moderation as well so I don’t feel to bad with that one. 

We mainly drink WATER in our household, it is our #1 drink!!!!!!!!! 

What is your #1 drink???

Do you drink lots of soda???

Did this article/video make you more aware of how much sugar you may be drinking?
