#70 Go one week without sweets
I don't make New Year's Resolutions, but I was determined with this new year to change my eating habits (including more than the issues I have with sweets). I wanted to do more clean eating and try to get more vegetables on our families plates and less processed food. I also gave up fast food (which is easy except for Chick-fil-A) for the month. I'm hoping to retrain my body so that it likes vegetables and wants sweets in smaller amounts. When all of that is said and done, I gave up all sweets for one week from January 6th - January 12th. Each day got a little bit easier than the day before. The first Sunday, I wanted to gnaw off my own arm, but by the following Sunday, I had a little bit of chocolate and I didn't eat the entire thing. I consider that a success. As I reintroduce sugar into my diet, I am hoping to only have a tiny bit and not even every day.
Don't panic- I will NEVER be the girl who goes without dessert. Life is too short. Speaking of that, I know I need to get on the ball about scheduling another one of my 101 things, because Dante's Down the Hatch is going to be closing in 2013 and I do NOT want to miss out on chocolate fondue.
