Laura, Kim, and Kristin are all going strong in their 30 days of health challenge. Laura has given up sugar, caffeine, and alcohol. Kim and Kristin have given up sugar and limited their amount of caffeine. All 3 are alive and well. There have been reports of crazy and vivid dreams happening from 3 participants which may be the side effect of kicking the sugar habit. Unlike what the project entailed, there will be no blogging or posting their feelings or findings because the other projects are taking precedent within Mayhem and there’s just not enough time to share.

Second, within a hectic MAYhem month we also need to take care of our bodies.
