This was difficult because last weekend I attended a fall party that was hosted by my aunt and uncle. At the party there were bowls that were full of leftover Halloween candy. These buckets had all of my favorites from FULL size bags of M&Ms (my absolute favorite), Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Twizzlers, and Milky Way bars. It was especially hard to say no to my 5-year-old cousin when he insisted that everybody eat some candy! Deep down I really wanted to say "yes" and dig right in!
I think after a few days of not eating extra sugary or dessert-like foods that you hit a point where it is all you want to eat. I have been trying to resist my urges by chewing gum, eating fruit, or drinking flavored water. Even though I occasionally crave sweets, I have been feeling better overall since I haven't ate them.
These easy part of this challenge for me has been getting 5 workouts in and including at least three 30 minute cardio sessions a week.
