Down with the sugar!

I admit it.  I am addicted to sugar and fat.  Specifically, peanut butter, chocolate, and ice cream.  Now, I have refused to give anything up for Lent this year because I want to use the excuse that I can't eat this or that, blah, blah blah.... but I've noticed, when I eat the good protein options laid out for me by my physician, the food usually stays down when chewed well.  These food items include:  sausage from red beans sans rice no sauce, hard boiled eggs with salt, pepper, Olive Oil Mayo and Mustard with WW crackers or Nut crackers (half a serving, mind you like 8 crackers), the veggies, chicken and broth from Campbell's chunky soup sans noodles, and other sources of meat and cheese and veggie minimal carb diet.

But I've been bad.  Ice cream, made brownies last night that are not even that good that I need to throw out NOW (I put extra chocolate chips and marshmallows in them - too sweet for my tastes), and while I'm sure most people would like them, I am not that big a fan of brownies anyway.  Jonathan didn't want them because he's not a huge fan of sweets anyway... though I have found a weakness of his - Heath Bar Breyer's Ice Cream.

I digress.  I am admitting I still eat bad at times.  I had a Reese's peanut butter heart I bought a few days ago from the Valentine's clearance and I have another that I am promptly feeling compelled to throw away.... Along with all the other sugar and junk food in the house.  I am going to have to change the way I cook for Jonathan.  Though, I have realized that he is happy with oatmeal most of the time.  I can't eat oatmeal, but I can eat Campbell's chunky soup, eggs, and soft veggies.  I don't need sugar.  I love butter.  But I can give her up too if necessary.  I need to refocus.  I need to work out.  These last 40 pounds are not going to come off without a fight.  So, I must fight the temptations and do what I know I need to do in order to make this happen.  The summer is calling and I want to get outdoors and make the most of it.
