Tame Your Sweet Tooth - End of Week 1
Wednesday, October 02, 2013
On Day 3 (Fri night), we went to a friend's birthday party. Luckily, there was no cake. There were small bowls of different flavors of Hershey's Kisses. I limited myself to just three.
On Day 4 of Week 1, I came down with a cold. Being stuffed up helps with stopping cravings for sweets! I barely had any cravings for the rest of the week. I was doing great not eating sweets until last night when my husband plopped some See's candy in front of me. He had bought it a couple weeks ago and I guess he got tired of seeing it there. All that were left were a couple of things he bought for me (I didn't ask for them)--one of them was something he likes, too. I should have just said I'll get to them some other time, but he made comments about it's more fun to eat them together and I didn't want to deal with him being whiny. It was a small piece of chocolate, so I just ate it. I felt a little bad, but I was too tired to care much. I just had a serious craving for sweets, but I'm slogging through it. Only 30 minutes until I can go home.
Last night, I noticed DH had also bought himself some Hostess cupcakes and was munching on one. I REALLY wish he would eat healthier. He snacks very poorly and is always buying cookies or pie or something. I wish he would just eat a piece of fruit instead. He has a lot of extra weight and knows it, but he doesn't bother to put in real effort. He'll go off soda or sweets and eat healthy for a day or two, but never long-term. He only exercises sporadically. I worry about his health. So far, his vitals have been OK, but I still worry. And if I say anything, or even just suggest something healthier, he gets very defensive.
Since, I've barely been online until today and haven't even read what Week 2's goals are yet, I'm going to start Week 2 tomorrow (Thursday).
