Taming My Sweet Tooth
Monday, April 01, 2013
I don't actually have a sweet tooth.
Ice cream? Doesn't faze me.
Store-bought chocolate chip cookies? I'll pass.
Sugary cereal? Pshaw.
And so it goes...
So why am I taming my sweet tooth? Because I decided to do all the official SparkPeople eating challenges.
Why would I do that?
Because my diet sucks.
Anyway, I'm supposed to make a list of reasons that I want to cut back on the sugar. There are only a couple reasons...a few...but they're all kind of related.
I want to cut back on sugar because my diet sucks.
And because I want to lose some weight.
And because occasionally, I will eat something sweet, like chocolates or cookies or Jordan almonds or banana bread, and having one turns into 6 or 7. In those occasional moments, I do feel out of control.
And I forgot the others, but they were pretty vain and, like I said, related.
Anyway, I'm also supposed to keep track of my sugar cravings. I didn't really have any today. Well, that's not true. I wanted something sweet at around 2:30pm, but I didn't give in. However, I felt like it was deja vu, so I guess I do crave around that time. And if I do indulge, I may not stop. But today was okay.
I'll be interested in any insights I discover during the Tame My Sweet Tooth challenge. And maybe I'll do it again after I finish the other diet challenges, but switch it from "Sweet" tooth to my "Salt" tooth, because that's my weakness. Chips, pizza, French fries...once I pop, I can't stop.
