Tame Your Sweet Tooth 1/24 & 25

Sunday, January 25, 2015

Yesterday was awful. Bad enough that I didn't even bother logging in to Spark and messed up my 28 day streak. :-(

Having said that, I'm getting a LOT better, because yesterday would have been a very normal day, honestly. I did go overboard on the sugar, but that's because I'm addicted and I let myself have one. One is too many and a thousand is not enough. *sigh*

Yesterday: Breakfast was oatmeal with walnuts, raisins, apples, cinnamon, and a bit of maple syrup. Did honey an cream in my coffee. For lunch I had this mushroom/spinach omelet with 2 pieces of toast and breakfast potatoes; I did have jam on the toast. At a social gathering, I had some french bread with hummus which was super yummy, and 2 1/2 slices of a giant Snickers bar ( each of those was like a fun-size candy bar), along with 2 chocolate-chip cookies and a cookie's worth of cookie dough. *sigh*

Today, I had more oatmeal for breakfast, just powdered creamer in the coffee, some cheese and crackers as well as two bites of a church bar that I then gave to my husband when I remembered I can't HAVE those anymore. Ate a banana and a fried egg & cheese sandwich with a bit of ketchup (I know, more sugar there), and dinner was a quesadilla with sour cream and salsa.

Cravings have been pretty huge today, probably for emotional reasons (lots of homework, plus feelings of guilt and shame), or maybe in part because of my overindulgence yesterday.

    I have a problem with sugar cravings too. Eating more whole grains and cutting out refined sugars in bread, pasta, etc. really does work to cut sugar cravings all around. If I really want something sweet, I make a mug cake. It is a lot of work for one little cake so chances of overdoing it are pretty much nil.
