I’ve mentioned before that I’ve been struggling with my motivation to workout. But unfortunately, that’s not all. Lately my eating habits have been really bad. While I usually do well on the weekends, I tend to snack mindlessly all day long when I’m at work. I’m basically eating my emotions, and even though I’m not an expert in nutrition, I’m sure this is not healthy. So I’ve decided to change my habits.
After some more poor food choices on Tuesday, I spontaneously decided to go on a No Sweets Challenge. This means no cookies, chocolate, desserts, or any other sweet treats. That also includes my beloved chocolate covered rice cakes and all home-made baked goods. I only make an exception for chocolate soy milk. This cocoa addicted girl can’t go completely cold turkey. Also, it’s all about “progress, not perfection”, right? 😉
Whenever my sugar cravings are getting unbearable, I have some fresh fruit, like an apple or a banana. Or said chocolate soy milk, but not more than one small box per day, and I will try to phase that out, too.
Honestly, this is HARD!! I don’t know how long I can keep this up, I’m just trying to stick with it as long as I can.
Dang, I so need a smoothie right now!
How do you deal with sugar cravings? Do you ignore them? Or do you give in sometimes?
