This Week...

Monday, September 09, 2013

I am challenging myself to no sugary sweets~not even the low-cal variety. For dessert, I will have a piece of fruit or a smoothie. I have been craving and giving into the cravings for sweets and it's taking a toll on the scale. It's time to be strong and have some self-control in this area.

On a positive note, I have 7 days of consistent exercise under my belt! I am excited to be making this a daily habit again. emoticon

Here's to a great week!

    Awesome! A lot of times, being very strict with yourself for a short amount of time (1 week, 2 weeks, 1 month, etc) can really help snap those cravings and, eventually lead you to a more controlled way of handling them - maybe 1 sweet a week after you've completed a successful term without any! I know you can do it! Maybe try protein shakes, too, as I use them in the AM and, it's flavored chocolate or vanilla so you get a feeling of yummyness, without overdoing it. And you can add fruit and such to it.

    I'm trying to get back on track, too. I've already nixed chocolate (I fell off that wagon 10 days ago -- temporarily!), ice cream, cookies. There are a few candies that I was allowing myself -- GONE for now. My husband is on strict orders to remind me that we have yogurt when I announce that I want something sweet.

We can do this --
