Nice! Good work!
I had one minor sweet thing because it would be a loss to not taste it. Anyhow, I have tasted it now and it was indeed good, now back to normal routines.
Day 0 again... It's holiday season here and I've been eating some junk last few days, it has to stop.
now seriously! 30 days without sweets. Maybe 60, maybe 90. But 30 days minimum. Daily recommitments. I say NO to myself and to everyone else. If I'm behind this 100% every day, I can easily stick to it. Urges for sweets are never as strong as those for porn.
27/90. When the rest of the family eat sweets, I eat eggs.
I just started the no caffeine challenge, come and join me!
That's great but I don't drink coffee at all
On day 4
A little breakthrough
Made some priceless decisions
I would be happy to hear them.
Yesterday I was on wedding and ate some cake, which I didn't even enjoyed... Day 1 again
Thank you! It's just that every day urges appear or I'm tempted by other ppl.
With porn you have this heavy dopamine and adrenaline rush, so no wonder there's craving. But with sweets often I don't even enjoy them. As @Future role model hinted at, there's some cake and you think you ought eat it (bc everyone does) or you think it would be super tasty and in the end it's just a bunch of cream and sugar.
I'm not against the pleasure and community, btw. I just want a little more control and to be able to choose what I consume.
So these strict 30 days is a must.
5/30 nearly finished!
For me, sweets has never been a problem to stay away from, so doing this challenge wasn't actually hard. Nevertheless, when I started the challenge I was consuming a lot of sweets even in the weekdays, so it did indeed do a big change.
Now I just started the no caffeine challenge and this is a completely different level of challenge for me. I really love coffee and I got so stressed about the fact I was going to stop with coffee I even had headache when I woke up the next morning, that usually never happens. Only two days has passed and it feels like a huge sacrifice but at the same time I realise my body felt very stressed with all the caffeine in the body. Now it starts to get used to the new levels of stress, adrenaline and cortisol... with no doubt this is the right thing for me to do right now.
Today we are going to celebrate my wife's brother who turns 30 and since I have chosen to also stay away from alcohol during this 90-day period, I have bought some non-alcoholic bears for me.
Yesterday I had some thought of eating junk again, but I controlled myself.
I start to miss a few things here: coffee, beer, crisps, ...
Everything is about self control.
34/90. Thinking about David Goggins when he did a 135 mile run or so and didn’t have any milestones anywhere near and the goal felt incomprehensible far away. What did he do? He kept fighting. He never gave up.
I snapped. Totally. Day 0 again
What has happened?
First I give in at work, fairly stressed out, and I ate some sweets. After work I decided I could have some sweets again. Bought chocolate and ate it at home together with a black tea.
What then happened or why is hard to understand for me now. I got extremely active, kinda manic and didn't sleep during the night. I did a lot of sport even still in the morning. At noon I had to go to work again where tiredness set in. So in the evening I was extremely tired, worn out and also depressed. The only right thing to do was to get a good amount of sleep but I thought I had to watch porn. I downloaded one video and watch it in bed but it didn't turn me on. I MO'd nevertheless and fell asleep.
Now I'm back to normal and I'll continue fasting.
But I think my sweet tooth isn't changing that fast and it's better to give myself a break now and then and have a little chocolate or cake and peace of mind as long as I don't leave the road so to speak (as I just did)
