Started the Tame Your Sweet Tooth Challenge!

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

Just started this because my cravings for chocolate and other sweet things has been bad lately. To-do for week 1 is to keep track of what I eat and note cravings. Well, I had been keeping a running tab of all of this in an open "add a blog entry" window. I added to it throughout the day. Unfortunately, when I hit the post button just now, I got a "timed out" message and everything I had been typing all day disappeared into the ether. Sigh.

I'll just write a quick summary here instead. The only sweets I've had so far today are a few pieces of candied ginger. I was craving sweets after lunch, but fought through it. I had a small lunch today, so I kept getting hungry all afternoon, but I was craving something more substantial than sweets. I had a teaspoon of sugar in my morning coffee, and the teriyaki turkey jerky I snacked on had sugar as the second ingredient (yikes!), but that's not too bad.

Heading off now to meet DH and LO for dinner at a hot dog place -- it's a fundraiser for the Valley Moms Meetup I belong to, so I'm splurging on the calories and fat for a good cause :). I ate pretty healthy all day so far, so I'm not going to worry about it. My only worry is that DH will buy one of their yummy brownies and tempt me to share it with him. That's a little more splurging than I want to do today.

    LOVINGWOLF991 - my husband is the same way! And then he'll say something like, "it's not as good unless you share it with me." Sometimes I'll cave just to get him to stop, sometimes I just tell him that I'm trying to eat healthy and then he gives me a pouty face or complains that now he doesn't want it (good!--he shouldn't be eating it either, but he usually ends up finishing it anyway). What gets me most often is when he'll buy something and just leave it on the kitchen counter where I see it often, especially when I'm hungry and looking for something to eat.

    Sounds like your doing a lot better than me. And when my husband offers me stuff I tend to have a really hard time to resist. He ask's me the first time I say no than he re-asks me while he's eating it and I end up caving.. I told him not to do that but he keeps doing it.
I hope you have a stronger will than I do :)
