I didn't even make it out of the gate!

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.


  1. I'm trying to reduce my sugar intake too. There is a blog I visit called Spoonful of Sugar Free. I've never tried any of the recipes but there are a lot of ideas to work with. Good luck!

    1. Thanks for the info! I'll definitely check the blog out. Good luck to you too!
