Fasting again...

I have decided to fast again for the next 21 days...

From April 30 through May 21 I will be fasting from social media and from sugar.

Weird combo, huh?

Social media, although fun and very inspirational, is also a time waster for me. I've found that on some days, I spend hours scrolling through Facebook and Instagram. Both on my personal pages and my SkinnyHollie pages. It's the first thing I do when I wake up in the morning! It's gotten out of hand.

So I will delete those apps and abstain for the next 21 days. And then hopefully I will be able to use them with some sort of sense.

I have also decided that in order to get some kind of sanity with my food, I have to kick the sugar habit again. I am simply lying to myself if I think I will ever have control of that addiction.

There is no moderation for me. Not now. Maybe not ever.

My birthday is May 26 and I am DETERMINED to get out of the 250's by then. I need to focus for the next 21 days, and I believe if I do so I will reach my goal.

So instead of spending time on social media, I will be at the gym or exercising. I will be able to read more and fill my brain with positive knowledge. I will be able to focus on all the things that have to be done at work for the end of the school year.

My last day of school will be the last day of this fast. I will be able to start my summer with a clean slate if I can stick to this fast.

And just to prove it's not about pure weight loss, I will not weigh myself during this time. I will weigh myself in the morning, and again on the morning of May 22. Not at all in between.

I believe that God can help me through this, but I must get my priorities straight. And make myself a priority, too. I know I can do this. I have to stop sabotaging my own efforts.

So.... you will definitely see more of me over the next three weeks. In my opinion, blogging is not the same as social media, so I will still be updating on here.
