That is awesome. I agree it is so hard not to buy treats because they are every where; even in places we do not normally expect to see such items. I remember the day I walked into an auto parts store and the first thing I saw was a rack of candy. Candy at the auto part store?

Wow, sounds like you're doing very well. That's nice and interesting that the green smoothies seem to diminish the cravings.



Keep it simple.

Hi every one! I hope you are all being successful in taming that sweet tooth. I am making progress but am finding I am still encountering some glitches in my plan to subdue that little monster.

I began to incorporate green smoothies into my diet these past few weeks and have noticed that my craving for sweets seem to be a lot less intense. Also I have been trying to eat more apples. An apple is a lot more satisfying than that bag of chips I was grabbing in the past.

Also, I find that I have a tendency to grab salty snacks when I am thirsty. So, now when I think I just gotta have that bag of chips, I am reaching for a glass of water instead. If I still want a crunchy, salty snack then I am popping pop corn instead. In doing so, I have control of the oil used and the amount of salt.

My half marathon race was a success by my being 5 minutes 24 seconds faster than my last years time and since I ran with the pacer I was able to run for 6 miles before I needed walk. Considering I walk/run I am proud of that accomplishment even though my legs were a bit sore for a couple of days after. But I am back at it and just signed up far a 10k trail run in hopes of beating my time from last year.

I hope you are all being successful and look forward to hearing about your progress.
