So today was my first day back at uni after committing to going sugar free. It was also the first time I went food shopping.
Let me tell you something, if you had asked me a week ago whether the biscuit aisle was hard to ignore, I’d have said ‘Um…no?’ And looked at you as if you were slightly crazy. But today! Oh Lordy – I can honestly say I’ve never noticed the sheer variety of yummy sugary discs on offer. The only defence I could come up with was to walk down that particular aisle at break neck speed with eyes firmly locked to the front.
And that was not my only brush with temptation today. Meeting a friend for coffee introduced me to the fact that the campus coffee shop has seriously stepped up its cake game recently. I mean, are you kidding me?!
Nevertheless, I stayed strong (if having a slice of pizza instead of cake counts as staying strong…?)
Temptation: 0 Will-power: 1
Until next time,
