This is day 21 of the "Sweet Tooth Challenge". It's really getting tough now. The old "tapes" are starting to kick in and it is becoming harder and harder to drown them out. Usually when I reach a certain point where I've made significant progress and seem to be vanquishing those old bad habits, the "tapes" start:
"You never finish what you start"
"It's not going to work this time either"
"you're not strong enough" etc., etc., etc.
This is actually stressing me out. And when I get stressed I usually turn to food.
In addition my cravings for sweets are kicking in. I've been down this road so many times
before and I am so sick of this. However, I am not ready to wave the white flag. Giving up or giving in is not an option and I am determined to do whatever is necessary to stay on track.
Today is a bleak, rainy day (thanks to tropical storm Beryl) but I know If I go to the gym and workout, I will gather strength to fight the rest of the battle.
Wish me luck. I need your encouragement.
