Today temptation was everywhere I went. Of course, I did go to the supermarket and to a cafe so I only have myself to blame.
It’s funny, but I didn’t actually crave delicious sweet stuff until I saw it. D and I stopped at a cafe today for lunch, and it was filled with cakes, slices and muffins. All the sort of things I would normally eat. As soon as I laid eyes on a cream doughnut, I wanted it sooo badly. Then I saw they had milkshakes on the menu, and I wanted that too.
D and I (probably out of rebellion) had a pie and hot chips. Although, having chips without tomato sauce just felt WRONG.
I said to D “We’ll just have to go European and learn to dip our chips in mayonnaise”. D looked at me and said “We have mayo at home…” So great was our need to dip our chips in something, we hopped in the car to go home!
Tonight we went to a friend’s leaving party, which was wonderfully retro fondue. Lots of bread and cheese, and we managed to resist dipping our strawberries in the chocolate fondue. Afterwards we were all a bit hungry and had to stop off for a burger to get some protein.
So I may be giving up sugar to improve my health, but today was a totally unhealthy day in terms of almost everything I ate. Barring some raspberries.
However, I just realised that I did manage to go from 2pm to 7pm without having a snack. Which trust me, almost never happens!
Anyway, the moral of my story is…shop for groceries online? I don’t know. I think while I am withdrawing I will limit my cafe-going as much as possible. If I don’t see it, I don’t want it.
