My little BIG goal

Friday, March 01, 2013

My New Year's Resolution is to gain control over my sugar addiction. I have a monthly step-down plan and am on-target. Surprisingly enough, sweet drinks seem not to stimulate the addictive effect like sweet treats do. Therefore, I allow myself (at least for now) to have sweetened drinks at will. Now I cannot drink coffee unless it is sweetened and flavored so much you can barely tell there is coffee in it, and I have been in serious need of coffee lately.

I have today, tomorrow, and Sunday off work. I also have Tuesday off. My big goal for myself is to stay on-track with my sweets plan and to survive Monday without needing coffee. Tea is fine because I love it unsweetened. I believe I can get enough rest over the weekend to have the energy to face my Monday without a sugary caffeine buzz. It may seem little, but in many ways, it is a BIG goal.

    It's a great goal! Goals should be what is relative to our own lives, and what may seem like something easy or minor to one person can be huge to someone else! You're going after the things that really matter to you!
