Sugar, oh glorious sugar!
As much as I know it's bad for me, something draws me back to it - could it be the sweet taste of toffee or the insides of a Rolo that pull me in? Regardless, I need help! I couldn't be happier that I am no longer receiving tins of cookies on my desk or candy canes from unknown senders!
I have talked about my issues with sugar here on the blog off and on. I'd like to think that I'm not the only one struggling to tackle sweets and get them out of my diet as much as possible. Bueller...Bueller??
Are you like me?
I've decided to do a weekly post on Wednesdays called "Sugar Rehab" to help me get out of this 'rut' for 2013!
Here I'll talk about:
* Struggles for the week a.k.a. Tempting encounters
* Successes taming the sugar beast
* Plans to keep progress moving forward
I'm hoping things don't get as crazy as Celebrity Rehab though!
My goal is to create balance. There can be rare treats here and there...no one's going to sit in time-out for a mini Tootsie Roll once a month. Sweets are okay to an extent, it just depends on the sweet, IMO.
How was this week? Tough!
When it's close to 'that time of the month when the she-devil visits' things seem worse for me. I was very good with veggies and balancing our meals that we made at home and at out. However, my cravings have been worse. I've turned to my Butter Pecan froyo (gotta love Publix) when I need a spoonful to satisfy that monster. Honestly, besides a Rice Krispie treat at NYE, I wasn't too badly behaved! I do remember going to the pantry in search of the ever-elusive bar of chocolate that danced in my head only to find there was none there. If it's not near me, I won't eat it!
Want to join in this quest to successfully conquer Sugar Rehab with me? Come on, I need partners in crime! It sure would be nice to have company while I'm in the hole ;)
