8/3/11: Day 31
I made an interesting observation today...All of my problems are based on fear and dwelling on the past (trying to figure out what I need to learn from it so I can learn it and not repeat it). Many also seem to whittle themselves down to pride o... Read more
8/2/11: Day 30!!!
Yippee!!!!!! I've made it 30 days with no sugar, artificial sweetener or soda!
I found some ice cream today that I thought I'd try made from coconut milk with organic agave syrup. It was pretty good! Of course I had to go for the chocolate ... Read more

Yippeee!!!! Internet's back up!!! I could've just blogged from my iphone, but it would've taken me forever to get it typed in.
Still doing well with the no sugar, no sweetener, no soda...amazing. Stayed away from the jellybeans today and t... Read more

(the advantages of cutting from one doc to another...esp. when internet was down due to a fried modem)
Somewhat restless, definitely irritable, and definitely discontent. PMS-ing probably, but I am just in a foul mood. Want to blame my othe... Read more

I made it another day! Yippeeee!!! It's getting easier doing without sugar.
So, in terms of the goals I set for myself to do get my backside in gear, I actually got up this morning and hit the treadmill for 30 min. I still dinked around ... Read more

Still no sugar, no sugar substitute, no soda.
Confession: I am lazy. I would much rather sit around and play on the computer than actually get up and exercise, work on my garden or stuff around the house (especially if it’s hot outside), ... Read more
7/25/11: Day 22
The cravings are beginning to subside. I'm realizing that I will likely have to bring my own snacks to any birthday gatherings and if I want certain sauces I'll have to probably make them myself....might not be a bad idea.
I've got someon... Read more
7/23/11: Day 20
I can't believe I actually said "no" to an ice-cream sandwich today! One of the docs brought some by for us and I was fortunately up in the ICU and didn't even get near them. When the charge nurse told me about it, I just asked her if she'd li... Read more
7/22/11: Day 19
I really need to quit waiting till so late to blog...I feel too rushed as I'm usually a couple hours later than I'd like getting to bed...go figure. Still working on that thing called time management.

For the first time since at least 2000, I am finally below 175 lbs!!!! I'm still sugar, sugar substitute and soda free. I do need to start paying better attention to food labels, though. My peanut butter's got sugar in it! I had bought it pr... Read more

17 days with no sugar, artificial sweetener, or soda. Still having some cravings, but not as frequently. Since I've got a very prolific roma tomato plant, I managed to make several pints of tomato-basil sauce and put it in the freezer. We also... Read more

Still sugar and soda free...yippee!
Work wasn't very stressful today, but I am still beat. I wonder if has anything to do with falling asleep in the recliner the past couple nights. I did at least make it up in time to get on the treadmil... Read more
7/17/11: Day 14
Two weeks w/o sugar, artificial sweeteners or sodas. Yippeee!
Expectations = future resentments. Rather than go into details, I just need to sit back, take a deep breath, and let it go. I have noticed that the higher my expectations, the ... Read more

No sweets, no soda, no temptation...progress!
Interesting topic tonight came up...sugar as a useful tool for people trying to give up alcohol. Yeah....right. Sugar has been harder for me to give up than alcohol ever was!

I managed to avoid the cookies today!!!!! A whole plateful of them were sitting in the back of the classroom all day and I stuck with my pita bread, hummus, and cantaloupe; my coffee, water, and some of the 100% fruit juices that were on the ot... Read more
