One of my goals for the year is to go for a full month without sugar. That time is not now. But I am working on a dry-run.
I've always had a sweet tooth. I love cookies. I mean, I really love cookies. And I don't have any willpower. I wouldn't say I had any strange cravings when I was pregnant, I just wanted the things I always love more. So, I wanted more bagels, more burritos, more donuts, more cookies, more sweet treats.
Before I was tested for gestational diabetes, I asked my doctor if I could give myself gestational diabetes from eating too many cookies. It was a very real concern for me. Luckily, I passed my gestational diabetes test, and then I really embraced sugar full-on for the rest of my pregnancy. And pretty much every day since then.
So, now I am right in a full-on sugar addiction, and am trying to regain control. Not for the sake of my weight, or my teeth, but for general health.
So, Monday I had no sugar, and Tuesday I had no sugar... until I went to work event and there were cookies and I ate two. So, yesterday I had no sugar, and today (so far) no sugar. I'm not aiming for 30 days at this point. We're off a a mini vacation later this month to Savannah - and I'll be damned if I don't enjoy all the spoils of vacation while there. And then, L's birthday is next month and I'll be damned again if I don't eat cake and ice cream. But I figure I can try and go for a week or two without sugar, and see if my insanely powerful cravings dissipate. Wish me luck.
