This one is a toughie. I'd like to say I rounded up the offending suspects laying about the house and tossed them, but I didn't. Worry not! the sugary treats are no longer a problem, they've been duly consumed.
To be most successful at this endeavour, I'll need to limit my intake as much as possible. For that to be true I need to recognize the things I indulge in.
Once a day: A sweet latte, approx 2 teaspoons of sugar
Twice a week: Blended Ice Moroccan Mint Bubble milk tea
Three times a week: raisin roll from bakery
Karak (concentrated dose of spicy chai with sugar)
I went through our records for the year till date. Unfortunately, Deliveroo and Uber have earned a handsome sum from us. Amazon was a close second. But let's shift our focus back to sugar, it's a dangerous thing to overload one's habit inquisition process.
I know the need for coffee is psychological in nature. I myself had never drank coffee until I was in my late 20s. I won't focus on it now, two teaspoons is a lot lower than the daily limit of 9 teaspoons or 37 grams.
Eliminating the rest requires I replace them with things equally convenient, portable, and satisfying.
At the moment my only quick and relatively easy on the body snack is bran flakes with low fat milk.
I welcome your suggestions for easy to eat, low in sugar, portable food / drink items.
I think I'll be sporting my first ever 6 pack by my 36th bday. This is your chance to get your piece of history.
I shared this with my wife and her first instinct was to stifle laughter. Challenge accepted.
p.s. she also gave me a hug of encouragement.
