bake me a cake as fast as you can…

My efforts to remain sugar-free at work is going fairly well. I confess now that I had a moment of weakness one day,  however I was pleased with my choice of sweetness – yoghurt covered apricots – I mean they just scream healthy but a little bit naughty don’t they.

Other than that though, it’s been a good experience so far.

I am missing my raspberry yoghurt at lunch time though (yes I am a creature of habit and used to have one every lunch time) but they did have to go when the second ingredient list was flaming sugar.

Why, I ask you when raspberries are already sweet enough?

When I started this latest health craze I told myself it was be at work only but it has crept in to my ‘other’ life as well.

When I’m at home I’m now not bothered about having something sweet after dinner which is what used to be the case and when do get the urge, which has only happended twice, I’ve been having some mixed berries which I heat up in the microwave (Mr T finds that a bit odd) and have it with some greek yogurt, that doesn’t have sugar added.

Now, I’ll be the first to declare that I did attend a friends baby shower today where I enjoyed a delightful cupcake. But the good thing is I just had one and was able to pass on the chocolate brownie despite them looking incredible.

Last weekend while I was away at a hotel, I happily ate dessert but I didn’t feel like a big sugary failure, I enjoyed the sweetness of my mini blueberry cheesecake and left it as that.

So apart from those two situations, the general urge to stick my head in a red velvet cake with thick cream cheese frosting has disappeared.

I did do ‘slight’ jump for joy when Mr T received these for his birthday.

hot chocolate sugar free

It’s chocolate but it’s 100% cacao with no added sugar. Result!

It tastes a little of mud.

I’ll be honest, I didn’t love it and maybe that was a good thing as now I’ve kinda lost interest.

  1. Well done Jess! I gave up sugar last August and have had a few relapses but on the whole feel much more energetic, have lost weight, can think a whole lot clearer and don’t have a need to snack in between meals. Now the only problem is when I do eat it I get a headache, but sometimes a piece of choclate to so worth it!!
