It’s Time for a Change

We’re more than halfway through the year. I’ve had a lot of major life events happen, and not all of them for the better.

I’m thinking it’s time for a change.

Big ones. Small ones. Ones that are making me excited to think of all the new possibilities they’ll represent, and some that are making me utterly cringe (but I’m going to attempt anyway, because I know I need to do it).

So, first up on my list of major life overhauls I’m going to attempt?

I’m going to stop eating sugar.


Yeah, and really for the next 21 days.

I’m addicted to the stuff. I know it. So for the next 3 weeks (until the end of July, really), I’m going to try to go cold turkey. Ish. I’m still letting myself have a few teaspoons in my coffee. And tea. And like, if my cereal has some sugar in it, I’m not going to freak out.

But I’m not going to go buy the “sugary” cereals. Nor am I going to buy, bake, consume, or otherwise participate in cookies, pies, cakes, and any other pretty obvious desert/junk food.

(Oh god this is gonna suck).

I’m gonna do it. For three weeks. 21 days. I’ve got a calendar to count down the days and everything. (And boy, am I counting down already). Hopefully after this sorta sugar-free detox, I won’t be craving it half as much as I do now. And that, overall, will be better for me in the long run.

Oh, and the second thing I’m working on? Revising this website. I’ll probably be making a lot of visual changes to it over the weekend, so I apologize in advance for the mess. I think I can get it all hammered out by this time next week, though.

Yeah. Sugar, and website changes. Yes, I think I can do this.

(Oh god, I want a cookie).
