Yes, I do consider it madness when I have decided to go without sweets at least for a week. Why would I do such a thing? Because my fondness for sweets have taken a turn for the worse. I bought 2 candy bars a couple days ago and ate both within the same hour. Daughter made chocolate sheet cake (awesome!) three times this past month and I KNOW I ate at least half of the cake each time. Something is wrong when you grab a fork and start shoveling every bit into your mouth. Oh, and I have recently discovered how awesome Tim Horton's glazed cinnamon rolls are first thing in the morning. Out of control I tell ya!
So, I have decided it is in my best interest to take control once again (did I ever have control??) and stop the madness I have created for myself.
It is not going to be easy. It is only 9am and I am craving a doughnut. Doesn't help when I see a Dunkin Doughnut's commercial every 5 minutes. Oh, and here is what I have to contend with in my house.
All I know is that the more sweets I eat, the more I crave them and the more I give in, the more I feel bad about myself when I do. I might have picked the wrong time to do this with Valentine's day coming up and oh...that nasty thing called a birthday. But then again, if I can conquer my sweet craving now, then I will feel like I really accomplished the mission set before me.
So, here I go. Wish me luck. I am setting a realistic goal of 1 week. Maybe after that I may not want sweets like I do now. I might just have to give in just a little for my birthday though.
