Yesterday, I made a great dinner and we enjoyed it but we didn't stop there like we should have done. We overate, made ourselves sick AGAIN. Last night was awful and we were up most of the night. First off, everything was salty so we drank more and that meant bathroom trips and then more drinking. I was a mess getting up for good at 5AM. So today is back to normal but with one exception. I read on FB all about artifical sweetner and decided to try not to use it anymore. There are a few things that I want to finish before I totally go off it, like my biscottis that I just made with Splenda. This morning, I had coffee with no added sugar or sweetner at all. Yes, I put the flavored creamer in it but I usually add the pink pkg too. No more. I can see it's going to be tough getting used to but I really think I can do this. If not, at least I can cut down a lot. We'll see how it goes.
My husband wants to take a "diet break" from Dec 21, our Christmas party, to Jan 2nd and then start again. It would not change our meals but would add different snacks without guilt esp at night. So the more I thought about it, I do not rule what he does but for me, I think if I am careful, I can enjoy this and then pick up again after the new year. Sometimes, I think I am too strict and it is no good for me. Like my husband, I've been craving some things that I had put on my no no list. This will be a learning experience as to how much I already know, how I have changed and where I go from here.
