no sweets update
Wednesday, February 17, 2010
I have been doing good w/ the no sweets at work and here's what I decided... I asked DH what I should give up for Lent and he suggested snacks at work since I had skipped the Munchkins Monday and the MASS QUANTITIES of crap on Fat Tues. (I took a picture bc it's so unbelievable and I will add it then.) I decided to just stick to my streak and had another successful day today. The OLD me would've pigged out on Fat Tues and "started fresh" Ash Wed but I didn't :) Progress people!!
Now I am not giving up sweets entirely bc I have tried it a MILLION times and it backfires in a major way (i.e. binging). So since work is the MAJOR place I eat sweets I figure I will start there. The other place I struggle w/ is my parents' house (Italian fam w/ a mom who loves to bake goodies!) which I visit every Sun for dinner. My dad is also trying to lose a few/cut sugar so I suggested that we split dessert on Sundays instead of each having our own which he agreed to.
I feel great about my decisions this week and want to ride this wave til I see results and BEYOND!!
