Sugar cravings

Saturday, November 10, 2018

I Joined the 21 day tame your sweet tooth challenge. As part of it I am supposed to keep a journal about when I crave sweets. As it turns out I crave them A lot! I knew that, I actually love candy. I did find that I crave them more in the afternoon and in the evening after eating supper. I also love cookies and frosting (not really cake), pies, ice cream....

So what do you do when you have leftover Halloween candy in your house and you love candy? This year I bought a candy that I really don't care for, sugar babies. But I also bought twizzlers, individually wrapped which I do like.

I sent all the candy out to the deer hunting camp for the men to eat but the sugar babies came back and some of the twizzlers. I got asked how come there were no snickers bars? Ummm, because if I have those in the house they wouldn't make it out to the deer camp anyway. I brought the candy up to the library for the kids that come in. I didn't want to bring it up to the hospital because I work there...

When I lost weight before I was able to keep dove dark chocolate in the freezer and eat 1 promise a day (50 cals) for a treat. My resolve seems to be worse lately.

I am thinking of cutting out sugar all together to see if I can lose my cravings of it. I hope to blog about my efforts. At least writing it down may help me to see a pattern of behavior!

A note to self~ Be kind to yourself and to others.

    I tried cutting out sugar. Never lost my cravings. But I have cut back on my sweets. Tracking daily is helpful. Allowing 1 a day for a treat. Try it out. Log it in your nutrition.
    I bought no Halloween candy this year emoticon
