Beginning week three's challenge
Sunday, March 03, 2013
As I mentioned in my previous blog I've been doing pretty well over all. I've lost two pounds in the last two weeks. My Senior project & all that goes with it has kept me from having time to blog & post much, but it hasn't stopped me from accomplishing my small goals.
I have just completed week two of my "Taming Your Sweet Tooth" challenge. I have tracking when I have cravings, and how much sugar I'm consuming. Week three is going to take a lot more effort for some parts of it. One thing I'm supposed to do is clean out the cabinets of anything with added sugar in it. Since my brother & his girlfriend actually buy the groceries at our house, they would probably frown on me throwing their food away. However, the good new is that they neither one eat sugar either, so for the most part there really isn't any sugar induced food in our kitchen. f
I have decided that starting tomorrow, for every day I go without sugar I'm going to give myself $1, and after I have made it 5 days I'm going to use that money to buy a non-food reward. Then, I will start saving again, but the next time I have to make it 10 days. Then 30, 50, and 100. So, every time I'm going to wait a little longer for the reward, but the reward with be worth more each time. I am also going to allow myself one day each month as a freebie that doesn't count against me. That way if it's someone's birthday or my graduation I won't feel guilty about celebrating.
Week three is going to be more difficult, but I am completely confident I can do it!
