Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. This February I’m ditching the sweet stuff and giving up sugar for a whole month to raise money for Cancer Research UK and helping to beat cancer sooner.
Anyone that knows me knows how much I love the sweet stuff from cakes, cookies, tea (with sugar in of course) to the occasional cheeky can of coke. Since having the twins over 3 years ago, I have eaten sugar everyday. In the early days, when sleep was non-existent, I would have a can of coke to get my through the afternoon (I didn't drink tea or coffee) Then when I went back to work I switched to a "healthier" fizzy drink, which was of course still loaded with sugar, and now I have a cup of tea (with one sugar, cut down from two) and some kind of chocolate every afternoon.
I know its pretty normal for people to grab a sweet treat in the afternoon but I wonder how much sugar I am actually putting into my body every month - I think I will be shocked to see the results.
This is going to be a really tough challenge for me and to be honest I am dreading it so please help me conquer my cravings by sponsoring me.
Wish me luck!
