Sweet Tooth Struggles

Another day of my IPPE is officially over! I only have one more day left of waking up at 5:30 every morning and taking that darn shuttle to and from the hospital every day :)

It has been a really great three weeks at Spectrum and I have definately learned a lot, but I am more than ready for a break. I went straight from finals to this IPPE and I am literally exhausted. My body needs a rest!

Sweet tooth

For the past couple weeks, my sweet tooth has seriously been out of control. I wrote last week about the amazing ice cream that I had been eating at the hospital, but that's not the only sweet treat I've been craving lately! While I have stayed true to my promise to myself of only getting ice cream one day this week (tomorrow!!) I've been cheating by getting other desserts through out the week. In addition to that, last night my roommate went to work in the kitchen baking some yummy treats and I'm pretty sure you all know where this is going...

She made a batch of brownies to take to work with her but for some reason, they really stuck to the pan.(We still don't know why, anyone else know? They had sticky caramel in them, but she sprayed the pan really well!) She salvaged a few good ones to take in, but guess who dove head first into the remnants?

I have no willpower

She also made about three dozen cookies using a recipe from her middle school teacher. I'm not sure what they're called, but they've got peanut butter, butterscotch chips, chocolate chips and oatmeal in them. People, it doesn't get much better than that.

Obviously, this excessive sugar consumption is not exactly helpful with my weight loss. One of the biggest reasons why I get frustrated with myself about this is because I am tired of posting bad weigh-ins! I haven't lost any weight in a long time, and this probably sounds stupid but I sort of have this fear that people will stop reading my blog if keep getting off track like this. After all, this is supposed to be a weight loss blog, not a junk food blog (or a Pizza Hut blog for that matter).

I love me some pizza!

I'm going to cut myself off now before I start getting too whiney on ya. I just wanted to get this off my chest, and I feel much butter now. This goes back to the whole trying to keep my blog positive thing; I know I wouldn't want to read a blog full of frustration and negativity. I'm really trying to work on that for you guys, please don't leave me yet!

I'm off to tackle my to-do list for the night, I'll see ya tomorrow :)

Are you turned off by blogs that constantly talk about frustration and struggles?

I'm almost positive I've asked this before, but how do you deal with an obnoxious sweet tooth?!
