Yeah, so, day one of being sugar free was a flop. But, I'm not going to beat myself up over it. I'm going to learn from the experience and move forward. Actually, if I'm being honest with myself, most of the day was a huge success, it was just the end of the day that was a problem.
I craved sweets at various times throughout the day and I was able to satisfy my cravings with dried fruit.
After dinner, I so badly wanted to eat the double chocolate chip cookies that I baked for everyone else, but I resisted.
It wasn't until tonight at my PTA meeting that I caved. One of the other parents brought these incredible desserts for the group, and I felt bad saying no. She was so excited to feed us, and I felt so bad refusing. So, I ate some...and then I ate some more. I will say, it was worth it. These desserts were incredible! But, I still feel guilty. Although, now that I'm typing it out, I think I need to turn my thinking around. Sure...I gave in and ate some sugar at the end of the day, but I was able to successfully avoid it the rest of the day. For me, that is success. Today wasn't completely sugar-free, but it was better that it could have been.
And...tomorrow's a brand new day.
