In our very neolithic world things like ice-cream and freshly baked bread and cherry soda pop are just so dang good that after several months of going without them I broke down and went sugar-nutso :(
They say it takes 21 days to form a new habit but when it comes to me and food that's hog-wash! I could avoid sugar completely for years and still jump right back on that train at a moment's notice. And I have. Again and again which is why I have so many different sizes of clothing in my closet.... ugh!
Unfortunately, I'm at the point where the "fat clothes" are too snug. Plus my joints are aching, I don't feel very good and I've been experiencing depression again - largely due to junk food overload. Did you know too much sugar and simple carbohydrates can lead to depression? Well it can so if you're depressed try eliminating it for a bit and see if you don't feel better.
Ok the corn and rice don't count (but they were soooo good), but the ox-tails (yes, I said ox-tails) and salad certainly do. And I had plenty of each too!
So I'm back on it as of yesterday! Sugar be damned... I'm not eating anything sweeter than a carrot for the next month! Can I do it? Let you know around July 4th or so.
