We are SUPER excited, but that’s a whole other post. Good grief, I can’t wait!
Adam and I were talking about the cruise Monday morning, and I mentioned that I needed to get bikini body ready. We are really good about working out, but not so great on the diet portion. I really don’t think we eat too terrible and actually somewhat healthy, but it’s the sweets that have become a problem.
Adam had the idea that we cut out all sweets until the cruise. This was a little TOO steep for me. I can’t just go all cold turkey. I like to set realistic goals and that to me is not realistic. So we compromised and decided we could have one sweet a week.
So here we are on day 4 of no sweets – I’m DYING! I didn’t realize how much of a habit I had created. It’s not so bad during the day, because I usually never eat sweets, but it’s after dinner that really gets me. I’ve just gotten so used to having something sweet that I just CRAVE it (and that’s a problem!).
I’ve found the best method for me is to brush my teeth relatively soon after dinner. After I’ve brushed my teeth for the night, I don’t want to have to rebrush them, so the temptation is gone (but not necessarily the craving…).
I already told Adam that when we do finally have a sweet this week, it is going to be something REALLY good such as:
You know, just a few things I've been daydreaming about....
I can do this, I can do this, I can do this!
