If you’re my friend on Facebook, you know about one small victory I’ve had this week.
I posted about how I typically cringe when I have to wear freshly washed clothing. Not because I hate the smell of my laundry detergent … I actually LOVE IT! Because I hate how my clothes seem to shrink in the dryer. I prefer my jeans after the first wearing…when they’re stretched out and comfy. However… I put my freshly laundered pants on and GUESS WHAT… they fit comfortably! SCORE!!!
Here’s another small victory for me this week:
Today was a co-worker’s 21st birthday. The ‘treat’ for the day was an Oreo Ice Cream log. **If you know me…at all… you know that my two most FAVORITE sweets are Oreos and Ice Cream… together?? Hallelujah!** They celebrated her birthday at 11am. I decided that if I was going to indulge, I would need to wait until after lunch. I wasn’t going to crash my blood sugar with a treat an hour before lunch.
Well, After lunch I wasn’t hungry for it. I decided to wait until after my M4 (or afternoon snack) of a Greek Yogurt. I have decided (upon finishing my yogurt) that I don’t even want the stupid Ice cream anymore… why? Because I know that it’s not going to taste as good as I’ve built it up in my head and I’m going to be disappointed.
So, essentially, I tricked myself into not wanting the ice cream… but I’m ok with that. I’m kicking these sugar cravings to the curb… for once and for all. I a in love right now with spicy teas. (Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger…. not red pepper!!!) and I add a little stevia to them. That’s all the sweetness my sweet tooth desires. Trickery, baby, trickery. 🙂
As a ‘reward’ for doing such a great job today. I think I might just try the blogilates ice cream sandwich recipe. I mean, It’s made of oats and bananas, how bad can it be? 🙂 Seems like a fitting dupe to my treat I passed up today. Here’s the LINK to the recipe for the ice cream sandwich.
