Yummy, Toothpaste..??..

I truly can't get over how quickly time is passing by. Another weekend is upon me!! Wow!! I had a great week! I know that some of my strength comes from all the support and encouragement I've received from all of my friends, family and new friends that I'm making as I go through this journey. Thanks for that!!

Okay, so last night was tough. Friday night, after I put the baby down, I was just sitting the past (not that long ago), this is when I would have a nice glass of wine or a cold Heineken and/or something sweet and yummy!! I just couldn't get it off my mind. To make things worse, I was going through the stack of weekly retail flyers. Seeing that Christmas is around the corner, all the flyers look amazing (food wise, I mean). You would not believe how long I stared at the dessert section of the M&M Foods flyer!! It was nuts!! All the chocolates and cheescakes and was crazy. If I had anything sweet in the kitchen last night, I'm not sure I would have been able to resist, actually I KNOW I wouldn't be able to resist. That's why it's so important to get all the bad stuff out of the house!!

Anyway, it got so bad (the cravings) that the only thing I could think of is to go brush my teeth, AGAIN!!!!!!! That toothpaste tasted soooooooo good!! LOL!! Who would have thought that I'd be looking to Colgate and Crest for that sweet satisfaction. Well, at least my teeth will be fabulous!! :)) Anyway, I decided that my best bet at that point would be to chug a glass of water and go to bed...which I did!!

Well, today is a new day, I'm off to do my cardio. I've got a busy weekend ahead, with cleaning, last minute shopping, wrapping and getting ready for Christmas. I'm doing Christmas dinner this year and our family starts arriving next week!! That's my biggest worry, Christmas dinner!!! I'll probably need a month's supply of Colgate total for that night!!! ;) I plan to speak to my trainer to see if I could cheat a little. Personally, I don't think I could nor do I think I should but I just need to hear it lol!! Oh it's going to be hard, but since I'm cooking, I will be able to make something suitable for myself without affecting the others. I HOPE!!!

Have a great weekend guys....I'm really pushing through as I want to maintain my momentum and have a good weigh-in on Wednesday!!

I use to brush my teeth just to taste the toothpaste and maybe get rid of my cravings too.. ! I've been there and it did work! I also use to eat alot of sugar free gum and drink alot of diet and crystal light. This was before I new artificial sweeteners in high consumption was not healthy for you. In moderation, you can still have 1 glass of crystal light or a diet pop.. it won't kill you.

Keep going strong Joania. I right there cheering you on...! Enjoy your holidays. Merry Christmas, Happy New Year to you and your family !
