Last night, while cooking & baking Thanksgiving Dinner, I decided to chomp into a red velvet copcake. I ate 1 bite, quickly decided that it wasn't worth the fat/calories, and gave the rest to my hubby!
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.
in week one i got the result of "sugar cravings are out of control". redid the test today and got a result of "you are in control of your sugar cravings". woot! as i was answering the questions i realized there are a couple things i need to work on, but i'm very satisfied with my results. i think i can handle the holiday seasons without going on a non-stop sugar binge. that's so refreshing!
i have learned a lot during this challenge. the biggest thing is that soda is the gateway drug for the majority of my eating and drinking problems. within the first two days of this challenge i had less sugar cravings because i cut out soda. i would no longer crave sugar in the afternoons. i didn't have the desire to stop for a soda on the way to work. unless i was thirsty. i learned to have my water bottle available at all times. entering week 4 i have zero urge to drink soda. last week was tough due to tom cravings, but i did way better than the month before. i substituted (lots of mandarin oranges) and i let myself have a treat a couple times, but i stopped at one treat.
i have tried this challenge before and never succeeded. timing is everything. this was suggested to me by another user and i decided to give it another try. i am very happy i gave it another try and learned so much about myself and sugar. thanks sp, for the great challenge!
