You’ve Got a Friend in Me

Sugar Freedom Week 2 Day 5

I am so, so thankful that we were required to pair up with a Sugar Buddy for this challenge. Even though I completed the challenge last year as part of a group, I didn’t have an individual partner. It was wicked hard not being able to commiserate with someone; to encourage and be encouraged on a daily basis.

My Sugar Buddy for this year’s challenge, Heather, has been AWEsome. We’ve texted each other during weak moments, shared successes, and laughed a lot through the challenge thus far. And believe me, when you’re detoxing from sugar, laughing is hard to do sometimes! But we’ve managed to make it work. 🙂

I’m an accountability person. If I’m not able to check in with anyone in any area of my life (food, prayer, work, time management), I tend to slip up more often and retreat into my little shell of self-sufficiency. “I can do this on my own!” But that’s not the truth. We are beings created for community, and striving to achieve goals is a lot more bearable when you have someone to share the load.
