Gnome winers on Day 55 of 172 of giving up sweets
- No whining.
- No being sad that I can’t have any.
- No saying no but wishing it could be yes.
- No double minded ways.
- Yes being glad to be free from addiction.
- Yes not being consumed by something.
- Yes to healthy eating.
Yesterday, because it was Christmas, I tried to test myself by planning ahead to eat just a tiny sliver of cake but it didn’t taste good when I took only a tiny nibble. Have I gotten incredibly picky? I enjoyed the sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts I roasted as part of our Christmas dinner. Fact is the cake was just way too sweet.
As the 55 days have passed by, I’ve considered many times switching to non whole grain breads and pasta. Reason why? Research is telling me that there are foods and drink that go quickly to sugar in your body. Here is the list I’ve made thus far. Of course sweets is still on the top.
