Well, as many of you know I posted a May Sugar Free Challenge a few weeks ago. What was I thinking? An entire month without sugar - from the girl who is addicted to sugar?
Anyway, I thought I would update you guys on my status. I really did well for the first two weeks. I didn't have a soda (regular or diet); not a cookie or a piece of candy.....nothing that was specifically "sugar" for two weeks. I was really pretty proud of myself for that. It took alot of willpower. I did have a few things along the way though that were still not great. For instance last weekend Jim and I went out to breakfast, and without thinking, I had ordered and was 3/4 done with my meal when I looked down and realized I had ordered pancakes. I went crap, PANCAKES....these are nothing but sugar. Oops. But at the same time I resisted Chips Ahoy cookies after my 5K race, birthday cake at work, more cake at work for a 1 year celebration, etc. I turned down things I loved and stuck with my challenge.
That all came crashing down on Friday. It had been a VERY STRESSFUL week at work, and then Friday at around 1 pm, I found out my Division had decided to do a complete Reorganization.....just 4 hours before our Budgets were due for next year (I'm responsible for the Budget for our Division). I was having a total panic attack. That meant alot of re-work and quick! It also meant alot of change for me.....as we are getting a new Associate Vice President and Vice President in our area. Anyway, all I could think about was I NEED CHOCOLATE. I gave in.....I marched myself downstairs and purchased a pack of M&Ms. Boo! I had lasted two weeks......and it all came crashing down in a few short minutes.
So, anyway, since it was my Anniversary on Saturday, I decided hey I had already broken the rules, might as well have a soda and some brownie Sundae! Argh.....I seriously have no will power. BUT, I am hitting the reset button and will see this thing out until the end of May (well May 27)! I could give up now and walk away defeated, but I'm not going to.....I'm just going to start over.
Have you ever been disappointed with yourself because you didn't see something through?
I know a few of you also decided to try the challenge with me.....how are you doing?
