Sometimes I wonder if I'm doing my math right.
And then I wonder if I'm just doing better than I think I am.
I am still consuming more sugar than I want to be. Having a cup of cookie dough ice cream gives me 30g, or 7.5 tsp. That's a lot of sugar, but I could eat quite a lot of ice cream before maxing out my goal of 19tsp from the past week.
July 19: 50g--12.5tsp
July 20: 29g--7.25tsp
July 21: 75g--18.75tsp
July 22: 54.6g--13.65tsp (Should actually be higher cause I didn't measure all the snitches of frosting I tasted as I tried to make it.)
July 23: 75.6g--18.91tsp (Rough day. Potluck desserts. But I only took one brownie!)
July 24: 52.6g--13.15tsp
July 25: 19g--4.75tsp
Hooray! I met my first goal! I'm sure I'm missing something, somewhere and that my measurements are imperfect, but I am not stressing about that. I'm just doing the best I can. And cutting back to just 19tsp really wasn't that difficult. I was still putting a lot in my mouth.
As for my second goal of measuring my son's intake--I didn't do so well. I did it for one day, but found it pretty difficult to keep up with his continual snacking and meals. So I'm going to reformulate a plan for that little one.
I would love, love, love to hear about your sugar-intake goal, see your numbers in writing, and read a little bit about meeting/not-meeting your goal.
Starting today my goal is to eat no more than 15tsp of added sugar. Babysteps. I'll do my next report on Wednesday, Aug 3.
