Every time I open my pantry I think I want a cookie.
I don’t always get a cookie…most of the time I don’t…but because they are there I think I want one.
When I open my fridge I don’t think, yup I want an egg.
Funny how our brains are drawn to sugar.
I’m not in to all or nothing challenges or big sweeping promises that you can’t keep. But… I 100% plan to all but eliminate refined sugar after Christmas Day. In fact I am looking forward to it.
For me eliminating it means removing it from my house. My house is my sanctuary and I don’t feel like utilizing willpower every time I open the pantry. That is exhausting.
But….2 cookies are not a good breakfast, healthy snack or even a useful treat before bed. They aren’t a good before bed treat, because I generally feel unsatisfied after a cookie or two. It’s like a threw it down the abyss of nothingness. I could eat 20 more if you let me.
Is this tiny baby growing inside me a cookie monster or are you struggling with sugar too? Let me know!!!
P.S. I am headed to a cookie decorating party this morning with friends 🤦🏻♀️.
