I’m giving up sweets.
I’ve thought long and hard about this. Actually ever since I was diagnosed with PCOS September of last year I was really considering totally eliminating sugar out of my system. Unfortunately, for someone like me with a sweet tooth this turns out to be more challenging than I expected. SUPER CHALLENGING.
You see I love sweets. Not just love but love, love, love sweets. Before I started working out & being mindful of what I eat, I would have sweets everyday for every meal (and I do have at least 4 meals a day ha) Everyone who knows me can attest I cannot resist sweets. I can give up rice, junk food, fast food and bread (being second favorite) but not my sugar addiction. It’s the one thing I look forward to on weekends because I try to eat well-balanced, healthy meals the entire week. So it’s such a challenge knowing I cannot have any of my favorite cookies, ice cream, cupcake, chocolates & everything else that is basically sugar for thirty freaking days. Hahahuhu.To have discipline one must be able to practice the art of control. While I am naturally a control-freak, goal oriented, plan driven kind of person, I lack self-discipline in some aspects of my life, particularly when it comes to sugar intake. I’m on day 1 today and so far, so good. I’m kinda scared for the weekend because it’s those days that I usually indulge so let’s see how it goes. They say it takes 21 days to form a habit. So let’s see if after 30 days I have a better relationship with sweets. I’ll report to you guys what comes out of this challenge (with a positive mind that I’ll conquer it) on February 1, 2019. For now, you can follow me on my Instagram @gojackiego as I post stories on all the sweets I’ll just take a photo of and my journey of being sugar-free for 30 Days. You are welcome to join me? What would you be willing to give up for in order to be better? I’d love to know! Wish me luck!
