I stopped by the grocery store this afternoon to quickly pick up a few items but mainly to pick up prescriptions in the store pharmacy. I managed to travel down the bakery aisle without buying anything other than half of a loaf of Marathon bread (it has various seeds, shredded carrot, pineapple, made with organic wheat flour, etc.)--it's SO good (If you have a Wegman's, check it out). I also meandered down the snack aisle without putting a single item in the cart. I was hungry at the time, and my blood sugar was dropping, so this would normally present me with a challenge.
I came home, took my blood sugar and enjoyed Asian Salad and a slice of the Marthon bread and a glass of half-caf iced tea with fresh lemon balm.
A week ago, I was in a constant state of craving sweet items, but I find that desire is fading. Dont get me wrong, I LOVE sweets and will probably always have to fight that battle, but I've noticed I don't crave them constantly like I did a week ago. Could it possibly be all of this healty food, water, exercise and sleep I'm showering upon myself? It's the only explanation I can come up with.
Bypassing my "red light" foods at the grocery store today, attention to portion size, all of these better decisions have provided me with such a sweet victory -- and I can' think of a better desert!
