No Candy Challenge
I had a great talk with my SIL today. She's one of my biggest supporters and can offer great advice on things that I might not see or realize on my own. She knows that I struggle with a sweet tooth. She suggested that instead of trying to cut out all sugar or make any drastic changes to what I eat, that I start off with simply not eating any candy for 2 weeks and to see how that goes.
So starting tomorrow (since yes, I had already eaten a piece of candy before I spoke with her this afternoon) I will challenge myself to not eat any candy (including chocolate) for the next 2 weeks. I've also challenged folks over at Tribesports to do the same. You are welcome to come and join us, just follow this link.
I know that I won't go out and buy myself candy, but I have very little will power if it's around. In just the last week I finished off both my Turkish Delight and all the wine gums that I got for Christmas. Lot's of people at the office keep candy dishes on their desk and I quickly lose track of how many times I scoop one up as I walk by. So this will definitely be a challenge for me. I'm feeling up to the task though!
