What I wanted was to get in the car and drive to Sweet Frog. It did cross my mind, but I didn't. I didn't eat the cookies, or the snickers either. And that Little Debbie oatmeal pie is still in the cabinet.
What I did do was take some deep breaths and reminded myself of the why. Why am I giving up sugar anyway? What's my own personal reason?
And this afternoon around 3pm when the cravings were more cravings and not just the stress, I had some apples with cheese and just a few pretzels. I still wanted something sweet so I ate some popcorn and a few grapes.
By dinner time, I was wanting carbs. So I had a baked potato with pepper jack cheese.
And I drank water throughout the day along with some peppermint tea.
Tomorrow, Lil Man and I plan to venture out for some last day before back-to-school fun. I know we'll be eating out for lunch, and the temptations will be everywhere.
It's been YEARS of trying to get past 3 days without having junk food sweets... But day 3 is complete... on to Day 4.
I am forever thankful for your support. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
