Brownies, cookies and Ice cream, Oh my!

Friday I joined the Tame Your Sweeet Tooth Spark team. I hope to learn more about curbing the craving for sweets and gain support from others with similar struggles.

Week 1 instructions are to monitor your sugar intake and view patterns.
- I already know I always want sweets in the afternoon and often after lunch or dinner.
-I also know I can avoid the sweets in the breakroom until I have a little then it's all I think about.
-Just read the marinade bottle i use for grilled chicken and you guessed it the 2nd ingredient corn syrup (a.k.a. sugar)
Will Keep an eye out for any other patterns I had not noticed before.

Another challege was to document why you wanted to decrease sugar intake.
So here it goes. I want to lose weight first of all and sweets are often my #1 self sabotage. Also diabetes runs in both mine and my husbands family and I don't want to set bad patterns in place for my kids to follow. Lastly when I overeat on sugary snacks or have a donut on an empty stomach I often feel sick. ( not just guilty but really I don't feel good.) Thats it! I don't view sugar as an evil, just wish that I could follow the example of the French where a little decadence goes a long way. ( at least that is what I read in a book once, I've never experienced that culture first hand and I'm sure the world is filled with sweet toothed people like myself.)

Well enjoy the rest of your Sunday. The weather here in Missouri is beautiful this afternoon. feels like spring is in the air. Gonna get out and enjoy it!
