Sugarless Day #2

Breakfast was a struggle!!!! Did you know there are NO cereals that don't have sugar in them??? Of course, I'm going for refined sugar, but still. . .even Fiber One, seemingly the healthiest one out there (or at least the one who most promises to clean out your bowels) has sugar as its #2 ingredient. I settled on Raisin Bran which had sugar listed further down the list than any other cereal. And then I piled raisins on there because they're SO sweet but NO sugar! They're oh-nat-ur-al.

Lost 2 pounds from yesterday! Well, if this continues, I will cease to exist by Easter! Does it really make that big of a difference? Could be the massive quantities of water that I'm now drinking.

In class I had to pass up Oreos and Oreo balls - the biggest winner from our class' bake sale several weeks back. Oh man. . .that was not fun. I actually sat on my hands and told the girl passing them out to get out of my peripheral vision! :D

The rest of the day wasn't too bad as I was at school or the Memorial Coliseum watching Jon's kids at Wrestling State. I did have a sip or two of Glucose which was pretty good. And since Glucose is already in my body, it was totally OK to drink. Although I was a little nervous about tasting it because I had a horrible experience the first time I drank Glucose during the Eugene Marathon: they didn't dilute it properly and I spent the next 2 miles trying not to throw it up.

Tonight I ate about 8 cuties - you know, those mini-oranges. That wasn't the greatest idea because of the whole being allergic to citric fruit thing, but the need for sweet was so great that I just started eating and couldn't stop. I couldn't even have hot chocolate and it was snowing out for pete's sake!!! It's a cruel, cruel world. Oh wait. I did this to myself. Never mind.

40 Sugarless Days

Well, that time is upon is: good ol' Lent. Looks like I'll be saying good-bye to refined sugar for a little over a month. I believe this is the 3rd year and hopefully it will be easier the third time around.

Here are my observations from Day #1:

*Woke up this morning and saw a Coffee Rio wrapper on the kitchen counter. That's just mean!

*Had to actually eat breakfast and not just rely on good ol' Fiber One Bars.

*Coffee sucks - at least at home. No more Hazelnut creamer. Straight up 1% milk instead. . .note to self: get half and half at store! At least I still have my Splenda!!!!

*Over at Jon's, I actually reached out and grabbed a homemade Valentine's Day cookie only before realizing I wasn't allowed to have anymore this year.

The Worst Commercial In The World
