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!
