SWEET TOOTH CHALLENGE DAY 25 - Heading into the home stretch!

Saturday, June 02, 2012

I am on Day 25 of the "TAME YOUR SWEET TOOTH CHALLENGE" heading into the homestretch. This is the most dangerous time. I have an uncanny way of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. But I keep telling myself, "Self, if you can make it 25 days, you can do 5 more." Just 5 more. And then what? Just keep it going - unofficially. Thank goodness it's Summer and I can indulge my "sweet tooth" with all the fresh fruits I want (within reason of course).

I still have not decided what to do with that unopened Easter candy in the fridge; must be getting kind of stale by now.

I think the most important thing I've learned so far is that it is easy to swap an addiction in one form for another form. That almost happened with the dried fruits.

It's good to know I can always repeat this challenge in the future if I need to. (and I probably will)

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

    I stopped by to see how you were doing. Sounds like things are going well? As far a the candy....can you just throw it out? Ihad some cookies in my cupboard. I had them there for a long time and knew if I opened them, I would eat them all. I ended up giving them to the food bank.

    Have a good week!!!
