Today was one of those days where my sugar demons were taunting me. I did bring more than enough food to work so successfully resisted the urge to go out and buy a lunch... however, in the afternoon when I started to feel sleepy I did go to starbucks, with a treat receipt from someone in the office who wasn't going to use it, where I bought a grande iced nonfat no-whip mocha. I should have just gone for an iced latte, there was way too much chocolate syrup. While at starbucks I did think, do I want a cookie.... NO. When walking back to the office I passed another snacky place and thought, do I want a date or rice krispy square... NO. Back at home I reheated leftovers from last night and had been thinking about going to the grocery store to get specific ingredients to make cookies (I was thinking about oatmeal with butterscotch chip and maybe pecans, using whole wheat flour and subbing in apple sauce and nonfat greek yogurt for part of the sugar and butter)... but as I entered my daily food into the tracker and saw that I was a little over what I am aiming for... NO. Any remaining sugar cravings for the day will have to be taken care of by herbal tea. Take that, sugar demons!
