No sweets for lent....ahhh!!
Friday, February 24, 2012
It's day two of lent and I am already dying without sugar! I should preface this with the fact that I eat sweets daily. Not that I'm necessarily hungry, but by night time I will eat anything candy coated and I will eat it ALL. Last year I gave up chocolate for lent and was so proud of myself and I felt better too. For some reason knowing I have 40 days to do something gives me motivation. I want to prove to myself and everyone who thinks it would be too hard to give up that it's totally doable if you put your mind to it! I'm hoping it also helps lose some weight.
I already had my first dream last night. I was at the end cap of candy in a store and my friend was saying she wasn't going to by any candy because I'd eat it and I just kept shouting "I can't! I can't eat it!" I know the craving will wear off eventually and I think I'm feeling a little better and healthier in general. I can't be sure though so I figured I' d blog about it. At least this way I can let out my frustrations so my friends and family don't think I'm making too big of a deal by not eating sweets.
So..my mood right now? I can't stop thinking about sugar and all the things I will miss. I don't think it's really hit me yet that I won't have any sweets but it's hard remembering when it's all around you. Then I keep telling myself it will be worth it! Okay goodnight!
