Day 17: no sugary snacks

Thursday, February 20, 2020

I can feel the resilience muscle slipping a little bit. Had lunch with my husband and we shared a tart afterwards - I'm noticing a trending theme of desserts with my husband here!! I think I need to work out responses to help me be a bit more resilient in that area.

Desserts are interesting, because I was not raised in a family that had dessert for dinner, but my husband was. So when he cooks, there is always dessert, but when I cook there isn't! Most of the time I cook, so most of the time we are a dessert-free home.

Largely it was a good day. I am surprised at how I have adapted to not having sweet snacks at work. And when I went to bed last night, I didn't even think about wanting to have a chocolate before bed.

I also want to add that this difference is affecting my son, too. When I was giving myself sweet treats, I was sharing them with him. My reduction in sugar is not only for me, but to try and get a healthier attitude across to my son. I think this is a strong motivation for me, now. Realising how my bad habit influences him.

    Once again, excellent observations here, woman!

    Do you notice any behavioral difference in your son?

    I know one of our nieces absolutely cannot do sugar without it impacting her behavior.

    Family is definitely a big influence. My spouse is big on salty snacks. Which is one of frankly several things I struggle with. But she’s also cool with steaming up some veggies and putting a tasty spice on them.
