Sounds familiar...although if you haven't already, I'd look into intermittent fasting as an approach. Easily allows you to have some sweets even on a diet.
If you've been eating enough, trying 225 sounds like a good idea. If you successfully completed one set of 225, there is no reason other than mental or technique stuff for you to fail the first rep of the second set.
