It’s been a week since I renewed my pledge to have no sweet treats, after a not-so-good weekend. I went without a single piece of chocolate for five days! On friday I had a few chunks of chocolate covered marzipan, and a small square of dark chocolate yesterday and today. I call that a success.
I realised that I can’t live without sweets forever, so I need to find an approach that works on a longer term. So this is my new strategy:
- No sweets at work. Only fruit and chocolate soy milk.
- Avoid processed foods. Home-made baked goods and dark chocolate are fine.
Quite a simple plan. But sometimes simple is better, right? No need to make life even more complicated.
Questions of the day: Could you live without chocolate? Or peanut butter, chips, cake? What’s your ‘food weakness’?
