Update on the War on Sugar

It’s Thursday. I have officially survived a week without sugar. And in that week, I have learned quite a few things about myself.

For one, I was (am?) definitely addicted to sugar. The first couple of days I was utterly restless. I couldn’t get to sleep—tossing and turning for most of the night. On Day Three, I actually thought I would kill someone if it got me a bag of M&Ms. And I’m not talking about a momentary flash of mild musing—I’m talking full on, several hours sitting on my couch, planning how to hide a body and how utterly sweet that first bit of chocolate would be.

It was right about then that I realized my problem was more severe that I first considered.

But, I’m doing better now. I still get cravings (like woah, do I get cravings) but they don’t last half an afternoon. They’re… momentary now. And easy to ignore or subvert.

I’m finding I’m drinking a lot more water and eating a lot more fruit, now. And really, I guess that’s a really good thing. Healthy.

I still want a goddamned candy bar, though.

Anyway! You may have noticed the new layout that went up yesterday. I like it. I think I’ll keep it. 😀 Let me know if anything appears wonky with it, and I’ll try to troubleshoot.
