Lowering the Threshold
Friday, August 24, 2012
If I am going to lower my sugar threshold, I will need to stop eating the following foods for a few weeks (deep breath):
graham crackers, waffles, chocolate chips, pudding, flavored yogurt, sweetened shredded coconut, hard candy, soy nut butter, jelly, jam, flavored water, and maple syrup. Aside from the sugary things I keep in my pantry, desserts are off limits, too.
Here are my calorie counts for the week (2,000 cal./day):
Sat., Aug. 18 – 1,769
Sun., Aug. 19 – 1,833
Mon., Aug. 20 – 1,665
Tues., Aug. 21 – 1,896
Wed., Aug. 22 – 2,037 (Staff picnic...only had one cookie. Not bad. : ))
Thurs., Aug. 23 – 1,882
Fri., Aug. 24 – 2,011
I'm back to school next week. We'll see if my eating habits suffer as I'm making the transition from stay at home mom to full time teacher. It usually takes my son and I a couple of weeks to acclimate to our new schedules.
Have a great week, all!
