I NEED SUGAR!!!!!! Should I cave?

I've made it an entire week without sugar. (Well...without dessert, anyway). Our weekend has been FULL of family parties. And I have resisted the temptations. At a pre-wedding "money-tree-dinner" for my husband's cousin last night, I spoon fed Danish Dessert to my baby. I inhaled it, but differently than I normally would have. I really just smelled it. I wanted it. I resisted.

Tonight, the my-side-of-the-family party had plates full of cookies, cherry bars, and more yummy goodness. My mouth watered. I got a second helping of spinach salad, and pretended the dried cranberries were just as satisfying as that cookie would have been. They were really good, but not exactly "cookie good". But somehow I resisted. We left. And my first weekend? A success. Woo hoo!

I was feeling pretty proud of myself. We got home, and as luck would have it, the doorbell rang. One of my favorite neighbors brought us a plate of yummy, gooey, warm, homemade cinnamon rolls.

And there they still sit. On the counter, calling to me.

And I REALLY want one! Should I change my commitment to ONCE a week? Or should I hold strong through the month of February? I don't want to be such a "spur-of-the-moment-snacker." That's the reason for the sugar plan my indulgences...and to really enjoy them. I'm pretty sure I would really enjoy a cinnamon roll, though. Should I give in?

I'll let you know what happens...

You and my brother Nate have more will power than anyone else I know so maybe you could pull of the once a week thing! I on the other hand have found that my once a week "free day" has been turning into entire "free weekends" so I personally wouldn't recommend it, BUT like I say...YOU have a TON of will power that seems to be non-exsistent in me:)!!! Good Luck!
