approaching two months of no desserts

I honestly didn't know if I could get through 28 days. I purposely chose February to start this self challenge because is the shortest month. I thought it would be easier on me, plus without Jerry home there is no one to give me chocolates for Valentines day, so I didn't have to worry about that.(a first where Jerry not being home actually worked in my favor) Another thing I did was, I didn't tell too many people I wasn't eating desserts. I notice (and please tell me if this happens to you) whenever I tell a few people of something I might be trying to stay away from, its seem they then make it their personal goal to break me. It's kinda funny and kinda crazy all rolled into one. So the first few weeks when it was hardest I didn't tell many people. Then as the weeks went by and the cravings started to subside, I didn't care either way. I initially made February my goal. Well, February 28 came and went, but instead of indulging in amazing creamy chocolate, or a sprinkles cupcake, I decided to do something else....keep it going. It's now March 26 and still no desserts. I went to subway today, ordered my sandwich and at the end when I would be normally be tempted to have a cookie and then give into my craving, I didn't do it and I didn't think twice. When I got in the car, I was so proud of myself. I am trying to convince myself to add soda in April. I have a few days to officially decide. (I like to start challenges in the beginning of the month, its makes it easier to keep track) But so far about two months ain't bad in my book.
sidenote::two blocks away from my office and right in front of the new target they put in downtown LA, which I probably visit twice a week now, they did this...
sprinkles downtown I just try and run by and ignore, like ... what sprinkles?! haha
