taking the sweet tooth challenge!

Thursday, December 06, 2012

i took the sweet tooth quiz and i have situational sugar issues! not a shock for me.
when i am around baked goods i am pretty weak and then i crave them until i get almost sick.

i have went several years with it right out of my system. i haven't consumed soda in almost 20 yrs. broke that addiction so that is not an issue.
it's cookies, pie, cake.... they are the death of me.

i have been getting my sugar intake under control for the last 4 weeks and have done amazing. i have avoided them even when i made them for others in the house and didn't give in.
i know the control is paying off as i have shed 9 lbs so far, so yeah for me...

avoiding the kick off of sugar season (thanksgiving) this year was pretty easy as
1) i live abroad so no traditional thanksgiving food feast to partake in
2) i 'celebrated' alone (4th yr in a row. sad) as my husband was out of the country for work.

so november was fairly easy as there wasn't temptations around me.
going into the Christmas/new years sugar fest ...
i do 99% of the cooking and the traditional holiday sweets/cooking will be expected in the house.
so i decided to participate in the sweet tooth challenge i'm hoping i can learn some new skills i can use to keep my progress going and enjoy the holidays in a healthy mindful way.

healthy wishes to all!! xx tracie
