I decided to give up sugar. The refined stuff, not what's naturally found in fruit and such. And what did I decide to make this weekend? M & M cookies for my kids. Yeah, it wasn't tempting at all ...
Anyway, while they're at school, I'm doing my best to stay away from the cabinet the cookies are in. You see, I have an issue with sweets. I know I shouldn't have them and six years ago when I was sick, I was detoxed from the power it had over me. I wish I would have never taken that single bite that brought me back down the path of sweets. I'm not the type of person who can have one and be good. My mom frustrates me because she just doesn't understand. I have so much control in so much of my life that this one piece of me has me beyond angry with myself.
So, I decided to give up cold turkey and it's going to be like running a gauntlet with the holidays, but I know I can do it.
I'm not giving them up because I'm tired of my weight, but because I'm tired of the power it seems to have over me. So, wish me the best of luck.
Coffee is the next thing to go, even though I only have a single cup in the mornings when I go to write.
That's it for today. This Friday I'll be putting together November's What Brooke Read!
Have a wonderful week.
