Thursday Thoughts, February 21st

Happy Thursday a/k/a Friday eve friends!  I hope everyone enjoyed the recipe yesterday.  It was really tasty and my family enjoyed it.  While I feel this week has been a little "off", I do feel like I'm making some progress.  Yes, tracking is happening which is a good thing.  However, I think my little lapses and letting myself have sugar over the weekend.  Also, because I was watching Jess, Jess and Brianna's live on YouTube when it was not live, I was reminded about what happens when I don't get enough water.  So, I've been really pushing that this week.  True Lime Black Cherry Limeade is a huge help in that regard.  It gives me a little flavor and helps me drink more.  I was finished with both bottles that I keep on my desk by 6:30 tonight.  I did splurge tonight and had a Starbucks coffee.  It is a treat for me and I rarely do it.  One big thing I noticed this week is the sugar cravings.  Oh my word!  It's like it just consumes my thoughts, but I am not giving in.  I tried a new tea today, but feel like the Tazo Dessert Delights, Glazed Lemon Loaf is a great choice for that.  It seems to help me get past the sugar cravings.  It always seems to be a bit of a process for me when I let myself have sugar to ween myself back off of it and not crave it.  Why do I do that to myself?  I don't know.  I guess growing up eating so much of it, it creeps back in and then I get myself in this vicious cycle.  I don't tend to binge on cookies and cakes, but those M&Ms or tiny pieces of chocolate get me almost every time!!  Does anyone have any suggestions to work through this?  I try not to have a lot of added sugar, but sometimes it happens.  Hope everyone has a great one!
