    Christmas Choccie Challenge!

    Hi everyone!

    I was just pondering how many choccie sweets I am likely to consume from now til 1st Jan, from all the tins of Celebrations, boxes of Roses etc that will cross my path. I am not a huge choccie eater normally, but could absent-mindedly plough through a pile of Roses in front of the tv.

    So, I've decided to challenge myself to not have any. Hear me out...

    1) I will allow myself a chocolcate based dessert after my dinner

    2) I won't have any from a tin/box/individually wrapped container... so basically if it's not at dinner time I am not eating it.

    From past experience, I know that having an allowance of chocolate within my daily syns just won't cut it (I'm an all or nothing girl), so I'm actually happier to avoid them.


    To stick to it, I'm challenging myself to post an update here every day or so.

    I love this!

    I've set myself a similar challenge, no individually wrapped sweeties or anything and certainly nothing I don't know the syn value of.

    I've got my hot chocolates or little popping candy freddo bars (less syns than normal ones) for if I want a chocolate fix, like I would any other time of the year.

    Hoping to stay totally on track, this is my first SW christmas and I dont want to waste all of the effort I've put in so far.x.x.

    Today I was offered some Roses, and now i've decided not to have them I wasn't bothered. Easier to say no I think, when you don't have to think about it

    And so it begins! A lot of social stuff over the next 2 weeks, before I even get near my Christmas dinner

    Last night I avoided Roses and home made rocky road.

    Tonight I've dinner in my cousin's, not sure what is on the menu, but hopefully no sweets!

    Well done on your challenge hope it works! I am lucky that we don't have any around the house, my kiddies are grown up and husband doesn't like sweets anyway but unfortunately we always get given some, best think is to offer them to every one else on the big day then get them to take them home with them! Then they are out of harms way!

    Thanks Polyanna- funnily enough the stuff in my own house doesn't really bother me, I know it's there but I've loads of other free food in too. It's more when I am out and about, visiting family etc, that the ninja chocolate makes an appearance!

    Last night, didn't have any dessert or chocolate biscuits on offer at my cousin's. Had some wine though! But wine doesn't count

    Friday and Saturday, chocolate free, although can't say the same for vino and crisps! Have a huge box of Celebrations here, and still not pushed about having any of them. If I could show the same will power over crisps I'd be flying

    Last night I was at my dad's, and on offer were M&S chocolate biscuits- the nice ones with each biccie foil-wrapped. Stuck to my coffee and didn't have any.

    Not really bothered that I am off chocolate, but it's making me realise how much of it I'd have eaten!

    Challenge update!
    I didn't have any chocolates or bars at all over Christmas. Apart from one chocolate biscuit, I've had no chocolate at all. Very happy, think I'll continue on for January.

    I didnt have any sweets or chocolates, I had half a tree decoration that my daughter literally stuffed in my mouth and a lavender shortbread biscuit that my cousin made especially for me and I have been dying to try it for aaaaages.

    I have a new found love for alpen light bars and scan bran cakes too haha

    Quite proud, not going to say Ill keep it up completely throughout january but it will definitely make me think twice before reaching for the sweetie tin.
