Did you get a fair bit of chocolate or candy for Christmas? Did you also supply with buying a little bit extra for yourself? How much of that have you got left in your pantry right now?
The first step of the No Sweets For Six Weeks challenge is to get rid of any temptations you have at home. Because you know what; if it’s there, you will eat it! You know what they say, out of sight… Chocolate is not the first thing you want to see when you open up your fridge in a weak moment. So, give it away, donate it to charity or feed it to the pigs (they might not even eat it).
Remember that your ‘Sweet’ is the food or drink you always snack on. You can also choose to cut out all junk food completely or cut sugar completely. Make the challenge work for you. For a better you.
If you are choosing to give up alcohol as your ‘sweet’ and have an extensive wine cellar, you might want to keep it though. Maybe lock the door? Or get a guard dog?
Anyway, my point is, if you have temptations lying around the house and if you keep buying more once they are eaten, you will eat them. To set yourself up for success, get rid of everything you are choosing to give up for the challenge. If your better half is half the problem, then get rid of him/her too……joking. But you should have a chat about it and ensure your partner is supportive of you and maybe even get them to join in?!
Now, get to the kitchen and get rid of any leftovers you may have before Monday when the challenge start (oh, and don’t buy more on the weekend…). Very excited to get everyone started on Monday!!
Awesome Ashild, xoxo
