As I’ve said before, I have a big sweet tooth. I love chocolate and candy and other sweets. I try to limit myself but truth is, I have a big stash of chocolate in my room for late night or even midday cravings and sometimes even morning cravings when I’m hungry before breakfast.
I don’t think sweets are evil, and I don’t think that they’re bad in moderation, but they were always there tempting me and made an easier choice than going and getting an apple or drinking more water.
My challenge this week was to figure out what is dragging me down. I immediately thought of my snack stash and I knew I needed to get rid of it. It was so tempting to keep a little bit of it back but the idea was to remove temptation, not only go halfway. I packed it all up into a box and took it down to my coworkers, who eagerly swarmed the goodies inside.
It’s much harder to snack on crap if I don’t have it around me. It was hard to let it go, but I know it’s worth it to remove the temptation and help me to choose better fuel for my body than sweets.
