The Sugar Report, Day 4

Sunday, February 03, 2013

Well, I did extremely well on sweets today! I was tempted - oh yes, I was tempted. Especially at Red Robin, which is full of My Favorite Things (milkshakes and sundaes and bottomless floats!). But, although I thought about it, I didn't indulge. Nor did I feel like I "had" to have any of these things. I simply thought of them as nice treats which I did not need to have today.

My one sweet indulgence came about 2 hours after lunch. I take a medicine that causes me to tend to not get hungry until my blood sugar drops. All of a sudden, I was feeling sick. I turned around, and the first thing I saw were a couple of Thin Mints. I grabbed 2 of them (not even a full serving!), and I felt better in minutes. I'm pretty excited that I didn't feel like I needed to eat a whole tube!

So, what I've learned this weekend is that exhaustion after spending the day with first graders is a big trigger. On weekends, when I have more energy, the temptation just isn't as strong. What I'm hoping to gain out of the Tame Your Sweet Tooth Challenge is a knowledge of how to handle those cravings on the work days.
