Taming your sweet tooth challenge - Week 4; Day 1
Monday, December 09, 2013
Just now getting some traction after Thanksgiving...
I wasn't able to particularly prioritize avoiding sugar leading up to T-Day and after, but I'm ready to start again today:
1. Set your long-term sugar goals. It's unrealistic to think you'll never eat sugar again, so create your own plan for keeping the sweet stuff in your life—but within its place. Map out a plan for yourself going forward. Will you allow yourself a little sugar once a day? A larger dessert once per week? What forms of sugar? Share your plan with others for accountability.
> I really think I need to militantly exclude sugar from my life! I know this means setting myself up for failure...
2. Understand moderation. As it turns out, you can have your (small slice of) cake and eat it, too! Learn about how to moderate sugar moving forward.
> This is obviously the right approach, and certainly do-able on a case-by-case basis but the holidays are seriously impossible...
3. Continue to be mindful. Keep journaling your cravings and sugar intake as you see fit. Additionally, keep taking advantage of the Nutrition Tracker and your SparkFriends to keep you on track!
