Does anyone else remember this episode of Punky Brewster? Punky starts hanging out with the ‘cool crowd’ and they offer her drugs, but she turns them down because she has Punky Power!
Ok, I’m done with the Punky Brewster references. I promise.
Tonight’s dinner was a delicious mix of protein-packed foods. I had an open-faced tuna melt sandwich (with celery mixed in) on a piece of whole wheat bread.
On the side, I had some buffalo tofu and roasted brussels sprouts.
Dinner also included a bowl of baked beans. I forgot how delicious they are!
I ate dinner pretty early in the evening, so a few hours later, I was hungry again. I made myself a mug of tea and piece of bread with peanut butter spread on top. I also had a salted chocolate-covered caramel. Mmm!
Regarding the comments on my previous post: While I appreciate the ‘tough love’ given by a number of people, I want everyone to know that if it was easy for me to say no to sweets, I would do it. Unfortunately, it’s just not that simple for me.
I’m trying my best and what you see on my blog is actually quite a bit better than how I typically deal with desserts. Usually, I eat them until they are gone! I should probably just throw away all of the Christmas candy in the house, but I’d rather learn how to deal with my cravings when I have them around. My goal is to enjoy small treats everyday, but with control and in moderation.
This evening, my blog buddy, Caitlin, offered me some advice for taming my sweet tooth, which I am going to try tomorrow. My problem is once I start eating sweets, I just can’t stop. I’m not sure going ‘cold turkey’ is the answer for me (I don’t want to do it and it would make me a miserable person), so I’m trying to find a balance that works best for me. I think Caitlin’s advice might just work.
With that said, see you tomorrow for a little experiment!
