Taming your sweet tooth challenge - Week 2; Day 1

Tuesday, November 05, 2013

Okay! Embarking onto week 2...

Checked out the week 2 task list:

1. Find out where sugar may be hiding. You probably already know the most common sources of sugar (think cupcakes or cookies), but how well do you know the unexpected places sugar may be hiding?


2. Learn to spot sugar by other names. Sugar often likes to go incognito under multiple names on food labels. Take this quiz to see if you know some of its undercover aliases.


3. Start reducing your sugar intake. Pick three sources of sugar that you tend to reach for and take your first steps toward managing your cravings and cutting down on sugar from these foods this week. Tell us which triggers you plan to avoid here.

> IN PROGRESS - after meals is a huge temptation for me because for years I have included a sweet as my post-prandial treat. Instead of substituting the sweet for something else I have been committed to being really firm with myself and resolute.

I haven't yet figured out how to enjoy meals w. my husband without completely losing focus on my goals however... perhaps that will be a good situation to ask myself what alternatives exist if any.

4. Continue to be mindful. Keep tracking your food and blogging to measure your progress throughout the week.
