So there's 2 things I've noticed:
A) My blogs are waaaay too focused on the bad things I do rather than the good things. I'm going to try and change that. I always tell people on their own blogs to just brush off bad days and move forward. Well it's time I listen to myself. I'm still going to confess here, because really you guys are the only ones that care lol. But I'm done beating myself up and acting like the world will end if I have an Oreo
2) Speaking of Oreos. The whole sweets thing isn't going as planned. And honestly I think it's because I am trying to cut out too much at once. Cutting out alcohol wasn't that big of deal. Never drank that much. Just wanted to see what effects it would have when I did cut back. Pop, same thing, I might work for a beverage company but I drink maybe 2-3 cans of Dr Pepper a week. And that usually accompanied a really salty snack. Sweets...my downfall. I just love dessert. Add all those three together, it was never going to turn out well, something was going to give. And to give myself kudos I lasted almost a good 3 weeks without much of anything in the dessert department. Just those few slip ups here and there. I kinda threw in the towel this week. But I learned something. Before I did admit to myself that I was not following my plan per say, when I was denying myself I ate less sweets. I know, I know that sounds weird, but hear my out. When I did "cheat" this week, I only ate one serving size of , let's say, Oreos. Before I would have gobbled up half the fricken bag. So mentally I have to think they are off limits and I will physically eat less than I normally would. I'm weird, no need to tell me that lol. So by the end of last night I had decided that I will continue with the pop and alcohol drought of 2013, but prep myself a little more before I quit cold turkey on the sweets again. It's all a learning process, and honestly I've learned more about myself since I took control of my health that ever before.
