i have not had any sugar!
can you believe it?!
well neither can i!
i DID eat some cookies, though. our friends, the norgren's, came over for dinner sunday and leslie brought gluten-free cookies for dessert (so thoughtful of her to consider my high maintenance needs!). they were sweetened with honey instead of sugar, though, so that doesn't count, does it?
and guess what else! this morning i woke up before my alarm, opened up the blinds to let the sun shine in, got dressed and ready for the day, made our bed, made the boy's beds, made coffee, made breakfast, served breakfast, cleaned up breakfast, unloaded, reloaded and started the dishwasher, pulled the laundry out of the dryer, put the wet laundry in, refilled the washer with another load, walked harrison to his carpool pickup location, played with graham, drove graham to school, caught up on a couple phone calls and emails, folded and put away the laundry that came out of the dryer and, now, am blogging.
so, basically, what i'm thinking is I SHOULD HAVE GIVEN UP SUGAR A LONG TIME AGO!
i don't even know who i am anymore!
i feel like all those whole30, paleo-loving people who have given up all manner of foods and come out screaming about how awesome they feel. have you heard or read about that food trend? the thing i don't understand is isn't "paleo" just a new way of saying "atkins"? they may not be completely the same, but they are essentially the same. it seems to me paleo is the organic, unrefined, unprocessed version of atkins. but take out the dairy and add in some fruit. or something like that.
in any event, i don't see myself becoming a cavewoman. well, actually, i did become a cavewoman once, but i don't see myself eating like someone from the paleolithic age. at least not this week.
this new found zest for life might be due to my break up with sugar. or it might be due to the lengthening of daylight hours and nearness of spring. or it might be due to just getting back to who i was before the great depression of january 2013 took over my body. whatever the case, i like it. and i do so hope to maintain it.
it's refreshing to actually enjoy life again.
even if it's a sugar-free one!
