After reading Jodi’s recent blog post about her Feb challenge of going 30 days without sweets, I was game to put myself up to the same challenge.
Most of you may know that I have a pretty wicked sweet tooth. And as I’ve started to eat more clean (or make the best attempt possible), I’ve noticed the one thing holding me back is my sweet tooth. Some days my love for anything sweet takes over and it pretty much spoils a good day of good choices.
So, I am saying goodbye to those sweet treats I love for February and saying hello to more sweat in hopes to crush my sweet tooth.
Goodbye ice cream, candy (waves bye to sour patch kids, Twizzlers, Swedish fish), chocolate, sweet and tasty coffee-like beverages and cupcakes (it’s been real LaBella’s!)
Valentine's Day and the Panckzi Ball are gonna be challenging but I told Aaron he can get my fresh strawberries sans chocolate for V-Day, though he jokingly said he'd get me carrot sticks. Silly boy.
They say it takes 21 days to my something a habit. My goal for this 30-day challenge is to reduce my constant craving for sweets in hopes to help shrink my mid-section. I was able to quit soda ( I think I can count on one hand the number of times I have pop a year) almost 6 years now, so I think I can do this. Just need to have willpower and lots of it.
The 30 days starts today and goes through Feb 29 (since there are only 29 days in Feb, figured it be better to start the last day of January. I’m gonna need all the support I can get from everyone, so if I seem moody or grouchy, it’s probably because I’m going through sugar withdrawal.
Okay sweet tooth, I WILL conquer you! Be prepared to be squashed!
Anyone ever attempt to give up sweets/junk food? How did you battle your cravings without caving?
