So, this one time about 4 weeks ago i attempted to give up sugar. I mean not really ALL sugar- just baked goods and candy. Because baked goods and candy was making up exactly 110% of my daily diet. I was promised that after a few days i wouldn’t even miss the added sugar- that i’d feel awesome about my decision and life would be super. i was doing swimmingly , and felt like i was looking younger and tighter than I’ve felt in like oh around 2 year and 9 months. but sometimes when i start “cheating” it turns into a downward spiral out of control. and that’s exactly what happened.
issue one. its the most wonderful time of the year for any candy lover. EASTER CANDY TIME. i swear this time of year is the best for all things chocolate eggs, solid chocolate giant bunnies, jelly beans, more red jelly beans, and sugar coated marshmellows.
issue two. pesky wonderful girl scouts. those sweet faced cookie monsters HAVE to be supported. its un-american to say no when a neighbor comes by with a puppy dog face and then you somehow end up with no less than SIX boxes of cookies.
issue three. lex’s birthday. which definitely involved more than one baked good celebration. i mean she had a party AND a birthday. who am i to not party hardy with my two year old when she’s demanding cake and cake pops? it would be downright rude and unmotherly.
i keep promising myself that tomorrow will be the day to re-set the sugar clock and start again. . . but everydamnday those girl scout cookies demand to be eaten. . . for breakfast.
