Ok so I started my “No Desserts Challenge” on the Wednesday before February started so I’m technically at 21 days here (saving I did my math correctly. 🙂 ) Got a head start, sucka fishes!
No soda was pretty easy for me. I knew desserts would be hard, which is mostly why I need this challenge. I need to learn better eating habits and self discipline which are skills that will transfer over into weightlifting.
I went to my friend’s house that first Saturday on “Cold Stone” night. They were looking forward to it all day and got the kids all excited about it. I felt “rude” not to have dessert… not a good way to start.
I have also had two chocolate cookies and a package of mini bundt cakes. With the bundt cakes, I had two of them and put the rest in the freezer so I wouldn’t eat them. “Frozen cake is terrible. No one eats frozen cake” I thought to myself. Then, I eventually tried another one. I thought, “Um. I was wrong. I think frozen cake might be even better!” Then I eventually finished off the mini cakes. All gone.
My name is Sarah and I’m a dessert addict.
I can’t be too upset with myself only because…usually in 22 days, I would have probably consumed 22 desserts. Instead, I have had about a handful. So, it has been really moderated.
Still, all the time, I want dessert. I am trying to give myself better alternatives. Using fruit as my main source of “sugar” when I want a sweet snack. I looked at a cupcake cookbook tonight and everything looked so good. Even the caramel ones… and I hate caramel (stupid caramel jerks.)
So I’m thinking I will give myself an additional two days at the end of my sentence to help make up for my eating of desserts.
This is what I feel like without eating desserts.
Ok. Just thought I’d share how much I’m struggling.
