Day #4 of no sugar = not so bad, actually. I'm not automatically reaching for it and then remembering I'm not eating it.
Like yesterday, for instance, I saw a Mr. RPBC sticking out of the top of my daughter's Halloween candy bucket and I swear my mouth watered a bit and my hand twitched.
But I did NOT grab that tempting orange wrapper and rip it open to get at the sweet insides, and I did NOT plan how and where to hide the wrapper (under old chicken in the kitchen garbage can, she'll never look there!)
Instead, a little light blinked on in my brain, and my inside voice said "Oh. Dang. We're not eating sugar this week, are we?"
So, that's a good sign, right?
I did want chocolate today so I made something that tastes pretty good after 4 days of no sugar and I pretend it's pudding. Plain Greek yogurt (super thick!) coco powder, vanilla, and half a packet of Stevia powder (all natural sweetener, honey's okay too)all mixed together. Not bad.
Anyone else out there still working through No Sugar Week? Hang in there!
p.s To all the ladies who went to Footzone tonight: sorry I didn't make it. Kid stuff came up, and we just finished dinner at 7:05. Next time for sure, hope you had fun!
p.p.s. No, this isn't me, are you kidding? I was never that hot, or that young.
