You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

I'm stocking up on fruit and at the first sign of a sweet, salt, or chocolate craving I'm going to eat a little fruit and then find something to do away from the kitchen and food.

I've definitely noticed some patterns during my first week of just taking notes about my sugar habits. It's always very difficult for me to stop eating sugar once I start. It's also obvious to me that my natural "trigger time" is in the evening. I think this is for two reasons. The first is that I naturally associate evening with dessert time, and I think it's been this way since I was a kid. The second reason is because of work, I think. I don't hate my job. But by the end of my shift, I'm tired and/or stressed, so I think I deserve a treat for getting through the day. I also have a definitive trigger sweet, and that's ice cream.

This week, along with cutting away any hidden sugars in my diet, I'm going to try a couple of tactics to help me through my cravings. If I'm able, I'm going to do some yoga when a craving hits me. If I'm in a situation where I can't (at work), I'll try to replace it with a healthier treat. I'm a big fan of fruit, and of nuts. So I'll have one of those two things on hand (within reason and in portioned bags, hopefully) to help me get through wanting something else.

I might also try to give myself some incentive to sticking with it. Maybe a dollar a day toward a larger goal, like a massage or a pedicure. We'll see.

Good luck, everyone! ^_^
