Today is going pretty well. It’s day 2 in the “no sugar” thing. It’s not a diet… it’s just something that I felt I needed to do. Sugar pretty much makes me crazy… it makes my normal mood swings irrational and stupid.
I think I might have an issue this afternoon, because I’m at work. Around 2:30 or so.. the floor starts to get warm and my desire to sleep gets strong. We’ll see how I do. I had to throw all of my mints away today… I’m not as sad about it as I sound. I think I might miss chocolate. I’m definitely not saying this is going to be easy – but I’m willing to struggle. I have done this before… I just need to get past the first week. After that, it’ll be smooth sailing.
The last time I quit sugar was Christmas Eve of 1999. My mom spent an entire month baking for Christmas and I didn’t even have one tiny little sample. I quit caffeine a couple of weeks ago, which wasn’t that bad. We’ll just see how it goes. It may be all in my head, but I feel different today.
