Hi Amanda! I'll join you in this challenge, as sweets are my achilles heel as well. It wasn't that hard cutting out bad fats (except for cheese. It was **** giving up my fatty, awesome, salty cheese), but sweets is a whole new ballgame.
I'm a chocoholic. I love chocolate: chocolate bars, chocolate chips, chocolate muffins, chocolate cookies, hot chocolates... And it seems I'm always surrounded by it. There is literally a world-reknown German chocolate maker in the building where I work. I have to walk by their store every day to get in and out of my office building. Oh god, the smell of freshly-made chocolate is always in the foyer. It's a dieter's nightmare! (but a chocoholic's dream). If that wasn't enough, the girls at the office keep a big bowl of mini chocolates or chocolate bars at reception. So if I manage to resist the chocolate store at the entrance of the building, I'm assaulted by more chocolate at the entrance of my office.
As you can image, it'll be hard for me to resist. But I'm determined to have no sweets for two weeks. I figure that, if I can go without for that long, the cravings should lessen afterwards... right? Right?
Oh! And what is it with Dr Pepper? I was never a big pop fan myself, but my boyfriend is totally addicted to Dr Pepper. Drinks it all the time. ALL THE TIME. He has it with breakfast instead of coffee for crying out loud! I wonder what they put in there to make people like it so much...
