"Tame Your Sweet Tooth Challenge" Day 1

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

I joined a team - and joined the "challenge"...

I am giving up sweets this week - just to see IF I can manage to stay away from them... and see how it affects my weight - health - and mindset!!

Day 1 went fine... I didn't "crave" anything... I was even able to walk right by a tray of cookies a co-worker brought to work... AND walked right by the HUGE box of fancy frosted cookies that was delivered to work yesterday from a vendor!!

I admit to looking at them... all pretty and individually wrapped... and OMG There had to be 100 cookies in that box!! I am PROUD to admit to walking away!!

I am not sure it will be this "easy" all week... but I feel good about getting through Day 1!!

With this challenge I have created 4 goals for myself, for this week...

1.) Tracking... I need to get "back" to tracking... and my "excuse" for buying a Smart Phone was so I would have NO EXCUSE for not tracking - since I can track on the phone!

2.) To get 20 minutes of "exercise" every day - even if it is just using my exercise "ball" while watching TV... which IS what I did last night...

3.) Cut the sweets...

4.) To drink my 64 oz of water every day. I used to "strive" for 100 oz, and almost wonder if it was too much? So I am back to making my "sassy water"... and hoping it will act as my "anchor" as well as get my water, and IF it helps with the bloating and cramps I seem to get every day - then that's an added bonus!!

All in all Day 1 went great - felt good about myself when I went to bed... can't say as I have had THAT feeling very much in the past several weeks!

So I am back on track - feeling good... and ready to tackle another day!
