Tame Your Sweet Tooth Challenge
Friday, March 22, 2019
Doing this Tame Your Sweet Tooth Challenge and day 2, I'm supposed to journal on my cravings.
Now, I don't always have a sweet tooth. I can forgo cakes and cookies and sweets often. But it hits me really hard when I'm stressed or hungry (and especially both). Usually its all I can think of. Its all-consuming, particularly when I'm both hungry and stressed. Sometimes that hunger is after a meal, before my mind registers I'm full.
Often enough, with tracking (started and still doing MyFitnessPal in addition to here) I will convince myself that the treat is not within my goals and I don't need it. It'll work for simple situations. Or I'll tell myself I have to sacrifice a little at dinner tonight, but I can have one small piece of whatever it is and I'll make it fit in with my goals.
I want to be more aware of the amount of added sugar in some foods in the future so hopefully this will help kick my immediate cravings and help reduce sugar overall.
