Crazy Temptations are Making This Hard

I have done fairly well on this little no sugar challenge until today. I have felt cravings ALL day. Maybe spending half my day in a doctor's office again is starting to get to me. Then I stopped a Costco for some chicken but it felt like the whole store was one big chocolate covered something. But then it really hit when my neighbor brought over these huge gooey brownies with marshmallows and frosting. They looked divine and then I opened the bag and smelled them. Oh the torture. I went through the longest mental battle. I get a treat a week but I had decided that Sunday would be the day this week.

Oh. My. This is good for me. And I am just going to keep telling myself that.

I KNOW! I went to Costco today, too, and it was very painful. I have to admit, I feel better w/ less sugar in my life, though.

You are SO GOOD! You can do this. At this time in my life, I just couldn't. I'm not in the right frame of mind right now. Maybe as a New Years resolution. But one thing I did learn was that I am definitely addicted to sugar, and I need to do this sometime. I had serious cravings and withdrawal headaches (part of the reason I gave up so quickly). Good for you for sticking with it. I will pick this back up when I'm ready.

When I called and asked about freezing mint brownies that didn't help either. So sorry! You're awesome and inspirational in so many ways. You definitely can do hard things. Way to go!
