21 day sugar craving challenge

Friday, October 02, 2015

Today I need to only eat 1 - 2 servings of added sugar.

Do any of you know how hard that is? I'm hormonal. I want chocolate. I want ice cream. I had some last night because...well...frankly it makes the tiredness and the aches just more bearable. Plus I want the chocolate.

I normally see the challenge tasks and can confidently click on "Yes, I did this thing!". Today I haven't done that for "only 1 - 2 servings of added sugar." Because I haven't decided if I'm getting Sweet Frog tonight.

It's not so much that I want someone to tell me "oh no you can do it! Don't give in". Or even "do what makes you happy!" I just need to vent.

I really did this to help me curb the baked goods cravings (which are mighty especially in the fall). And I HAVE made some progress. Instead of eating donuts one morning, I made myself dark chocolate oatmeal (yes, sugary but not NEARLY as bad for me as the donuts). I've been using lots of whole grains. I've been trying super hard to get my fiber intake up (harder than it looks).

But man...I love sweet stuff. I can usually sub in greek yogurt, but even that has some added sugar in it (chobani uses cane sugar juice). And I left my apple at home this morning, so I"m not sure if the raisins and apricots in the stew I had for lunch will do me.

I may have to call this evening how I feel and just know that it will be easier next week when the hormonal cravings for "chocolate me NOOOOOOW" are gone.
