Sunset Eat Fresh Day 3: Let’s talk about last night

January 8, 2014 | By | Comments (2)


Alternate titles: Wake me up when it’s Friday. Does dark chocolate really count? Whose idea was this? 

Who: Joanna Linberg, home editor
I’m giving up: Alcohol, red meat, refined and natural sugars, caffeine
My biggest challenge today: Faltering willpower. Low energy. A shattering realization of how messed up my relationship with sugar is.
My biggest temptation to cheat: Yesterday felt easy. I went home, roasted broccoli and salmon for dinner, and then it started. I couldn’t stay settled on the couch. I did some drive-by browsing of the refrigerator. I ate a few pickles. I got a glass of water. Something didn’t feel right. Then I realized: Dinner didn’t feel over to me because I hadn’t had something sweet. Once I realized that, it was worse. At one point I gripped my husband’s arm and cried, “Chocolate! My kingdom for some chocolate!”
Coping mechanisms: I went to bed early.
I feel: Kind of surprised by how distracted I felt without dessert and hoping tonight isn’t so bad. I have no game plan if it is.

Is it any surprise I’m already planning some post-challenge weekend baking? The chocolate cookies pictured above are topping my list. (photo: Peden & Munk)

    If you don’t relish the thought of hustling to a workplace every day, there’s never been a better time to work from home. Start earning with Google. Just work for few hours and have more time with friends and family. I earn up to $500 per week. Its actually the nicest job Ive had. Blog link http://Buzz95.coM
