I have to say, I am awfully fond of chocolate and sweets ;-) But to tell you the truth, I’m not really sure the feeling is mutual. In fact I know it’s not. I have even seriously considered putting this lifetime habit change off until later because I really want to eat chocolate whenever the mood strikes (haha is that not horrible!) But I figured, I might as well go ahead and just do it :) (Does this picture not look insanely yummy?!?! My mouth is watering right now!
So here’s what this is going to look like:
- Have only 1 dessert per week (and try and keep that to special occasions!)
- To have 1 small piece of chocolate to nibble on with my hot tea in the evenings. It is such a yummy treat!
So no more will I be munching on the cake in the kitchen whenever I am going by and no more snatching the snack sized candy bars a few at a time. I will just keep telling myself that I don’t really want it. (Do you think that will work?)
What I Drink Week 3 Check-In
So, week 3 of my challenge. I think overall I did fair. I had adjusted this habit to allow for one (occasionally two) sodas or sweet teas a week with a meal. This past week we had lunch with a sweet young lady from our church and I had an absolutely delicious (real) cherry coke with my Mexican. I have to say I enjoyed it immensely and I did not feel guilty at all. We went out another time this week with a family from the church to this really great steakhouse and I did get a sweet tea. This week was definitely an exception on the eating out – I rarely go out to eat! Maybe 2-3 times a month, let alone twice in one week! The hardest thing for me at this point is still drinking enough water. But I know me and my water bottle are going to become good friends :-)
