Easter Candy Dilemma
Updated: Apr 17
Easter Sunday wasn't exactly traditional this year for any of us.
That doesn't mean that we didn't enjoy an Easter egg hunt at the house, leading to a drawer full of an excessive amount of candy.
Most of the time, I have a really hard time denying my sweet tooth. Especially when the sugar is plentiful in the house.
Difficult or not, I need to do a better job exercising discipline.
My waistline depends on it.
Today, I ate too much candy and too many Oreos. While I haven't gained any unwanted weight since the worldwide lock down, it isn't because I've been eating healthy. I've been aware of my calorie intake, often sacrificing a healthy meal because I consumed too many Resses, or Oreos, or a Pint of Ben and Jerry's.
So I'm going on a Sugar Fast.
That's hard to write considering the abundance of goodies we have stashed in the house, and my undying love for most things sweet. It will be a real test of self-control.
No cookies, no candy, no ice cream for the next week, at least.
It is certainly easier to accomplish feats like this when the thing I'm trying to avoid isn't readily available, but I don't really have that option right now.
However, I've discovered that when I write about something, I do a much better job at following through.
So here goes.
Wish me luck.
