weekly sugar intake

Sunday, January 13, 2013

I know the sugar challenge said not to change my habits, but I am already changing all my habits so I am not going back to old ways. So this week I was paying attention to when my head/body wanted sugar or a sweet treat, and found that some of it is long held habits from childhood. I like a sweet end to my lunch but instead of the candy bar from the vending machine or whatever sugar was brought in by someone in the break-room I chose better. So I save my yogurt for "dessert" or some dried fruit and nuts, or fresh fruit, something that has natural healthy sugars.

My dinner post sweet is a little harder though. I want something as a treat...I have 'been good' or 'I deserve' mentality comes into my mind. I am working through a bible study on healthy relationships with food, so I usually try and read some of the that so I can remember that I actually "deserve" so much better than so sugar laden treat and the guilt that follows. I am learning that I can have something small, like a few cookies and feel satisfied with the sweet.

    I have always been a number one fan of Sweets! Ha!
    I am like you, in that I am using yogart and fruits to quench my sweet tooth. God is blessing and it is really working.
    That reminds me of something my grandson said a few days ago when I offered him dessert after his meal. He said, "No thanks, the sweet part of my stomach is full." Ha!
    Wouldn't it be cool to have a permanent full sugar spot! Oh well....
    Great blog! Enjoyed it! Keep it up!

    Good for you! I'm a carb addict myself and the more sweets I have, the more I want. When I cut them out of my diet, I go through withdrawal. I figure a little temporary headache and fatigue is a small price to pay for being healthier!
