I am looking to make some changes in my diet. When I am pregnant I don’t want to eat anything. I eat to just to get by. As soon as I have the baby I have a great desire to eat! And eat I do! The number one thing I can not tolerate when pregnant is chocolate. It makes me soo sick. So as soon as Lil’Bean was born what did I turn to…. Chocolate!
In fact I had at least two chocolate milk shakes in the hospital after he was born. Then when I got home I started raiding the pantry. I had a stash of sweet things that had accumulated through the pregnancy.
When I am tired and the kids are crying and I start feeling stressed, I have been turning to sweets, mostly chocolate. It is making it really hard to loose any weight. I am pretty much feeling addicted to all things sweet. I give in often because I am tired most days and since I have two under two, there happens to be a lot of crying around the house throughout the day.
So…. Since I need to make some changes, I decided April is it. I want to curb my cravings and give my body a kick start to getting back into shape. So if this doesn’t help, I don’t know what will!
The challenge I am presenting to myself and all of you out in blog world (for accountability) is to not eat any sweets for the month of April. I mostly would like to focus on not eating candy and baked goods. I have given up sweets in the past and the first little while is the hardest. The main reason I am doing this is to just break the habit of grazing and craving sweets.
I have hypoglycemia and sugar and carbs are the worst thing I should be eating. I have learned how to manipulate my blood sugar enough to get by, but carbs make me moody and hold onto weight like it is doing me good.
So here we go… no more sweets for 30 days. I am going to miss eating sweets with Lil’Miss for her 2nd Birthday. We are also going out of town soon and the hotel we are staying at has fresh baked cookies each evening. Warm, delicious gooey chocolate chip cookies. No better time than now to kick the sweets habit. I told the hubs he doesn’t get to eat the delicious cookies around me!
So here we go!
Happy Self Restraint!
