And so far? I've done really well. I didn't even add in alternatives to sugar until about two weeks ago. And even now, it's not like I eat them every day.
The flour? Except for a one time oopsimstarvingijustateapieceofleftoverpizza mistake, I've been right on.
But I failed to take in to consideration that my birthday will happen this week. And my little guy will turn two just one day later.
So this begs the question.
Do I allow myself a sweet treat on my birthday?
You see, the whole reason that I did this was to prove to myself that I was the one with the control, not the food. And "they" always say that once you don't eat sugar you don't crave it anymore. Well, "they" are big fat liars. I want sugar every.single.day. I have turned down cupcakes, and cookies, and ice cream, and muffins, and breads on so many occasions over the past couple of weeks. And I have never caved in (even when those Girl Scouts shove a box of cookies in my face on every grocery store visit).
So have I proven my self control enough to indulge?
Or would you consider it cheating?
