Oh my goodness! You wouldn't believe it....
monster cookies yesterday. I LOVE these things, but I didn't eat any at all--not even the dough, which honestly, is much more of a temptation than the baked results. I haven't made them in a very long time. The high schoolers had finished their finals, so I thought it might be a nice, surprising after-school snack for them.
So, there are my sugar-filled temptations. Day one of the 8 week challenge, and that was what fell in front of my salivating mouth. Believe me, normally I would have eaten some of all of these and not even thought twice about it. I, my dear friends, am a sugar ADDICT!
This is one of the reasons I'm even doing this challenge. I eat anything that's quick or sugar-filled. Usually anything sugar-filled is quick.
But, I'll have you know, I succeeded. I was able to say no to ALL of it.
I have chosen Saturday as my sugar day. I have tucked a little baggie of cookie dough, two monster cookies, the caramel (not sure that'll be after having been frozen), a piece of pie, and two striped cookies into the space on the back of the top shelf of the kitchen freezer. Tomorrow's the day! I'm going to be BUZZING midday. No doubt.
For now, I'm doing great with everything else. Took a hike up Cooper Mountain this morning. It's a grading day, so the kids are out of school. I left the olders with the youngers and took off. What I didn't know is that if you hike and follow the path straight up the hill from my house, you end up in someone's backyard. DARN! I was sad to see the trail end. It's a gorgeous day, so it was all wonderful.
Water is my biggest challenge at this point. I felt so good this morning when I woke, though. I can't remember the last time I woke and felt rested and energetic. Could the results be so quick, or could it just be that the sun is out and the birds are singing and spring is coming?
