No Crap Challenge: Undone by pumpkin bread

It's been a week since my last post. I apologize. When I'm under a book deadline all my time gets budgeted to that first

I thought I would take a minute to update you on week three of how the no crap challenge is going. Or isn't.
I was doing great, feeling really good, actually lost about four pounds. Then disaster struck.

I was at kneaders having some chicken noodle soup with the family. They have a sample basket. This time it held slices of pumpkin bread. I love pumpkin bread! So, unthinking, I grabbed a slice and ate it. Did not even consider the sugar content. After a few weeks of no sugar I had completely curbed my cravings. After one itty bitty slice of the sweet bread, the cravings came back with gusto.

I want to shove everything in my mouth. It's terrible. I'm using my will power, but it's not easy or fun. But more interesting, I thought, was how that little bit of sugar ignited cravings.

Think about it. If you start your day with a sugary cereal or syrup on pancakes, are you dooming yourself to want more sugar for the rest of the day?

Food for thought.
