Sugar journal

Tuesday, September 22, 2015

So I just joined the 21 day tame your sweet tooth challenge and I'm supposed to be keeping track of my sugar habits. I think I'll write things down on my phone and post later but for now, I'm trying to satisfy a requirement.
Sugar is my downfall; it always has been. I have been known to down an entire pint of Ben and Jerry's in one sitting multiple times a week. Working out does help make it easier to say no, so I really need to spend more time with that. I'll be sure to post some real thoughts as I have them.

    I COMPLETELY understand the ice cream thing! That is my kryptonite. I will do the same thing with a bowl of ice cream that isn't a pint, but definitely is NOT the recommended serving of half a cup!! I wish you the best of luck with the sweet tooth challenge. They say once you can go three days without putting any unnatural sugar in your system that the cravings start going away dramatically so I hope you get there and things get easier for you. Keep your head up during those first few days though!!!

    Sugar is also my downfall. Even as a kid I would spend my entire allowance on candy. As an adult I have a drawer at work with sugary snacks. I cleared it out but I spend most of my day opening it hoping something magically appears!

    Writing down your cravings when you have them and how you feel at the time really helps. It opened my eyes to why I was eating so much sugar, and really helped me cut back. You can certainly do it!
