it's the end of the world as i know it.

i'd like to take care of five items of business, please.

a-hem:

1. wowsers. thank you SO much for all of your comments about my new 'do. it was like year-book day receiving all of your lovely notes (minus the "call me" and "stay cool" and "U R HOT" messages). made my lil heart swell. how did i get so lucky to have all of you in my life?

2. it's March 30th. THE END OF MARCH. what happened to March?

3. i reeeealllllyyyy realllllyyyy despise April Fool's day. so please...pretty please with a cherry on top...don't try and trick me on Wednesday.

4. last week was teacher appreciation week. being a teacher is awesome, but being a teacher during teacher appreciation week is THE BOMB. lots of sweet notes, flowers, little surprises, yummy food.....and lots of treats. which leads me to #5

5. i'm laying off the sugar till Easters. really. i am. my poor lil Abs are in there somewhere...hiding behind all the sugar and junk i keep consuming. and while i'd like to blame it on the nursing, M and i made a deal last night: no sugar till Easter. i mean that's only two weeks. right? i can do it. so, this morning, i put away all my delicious treats in this little box:


and now i need to find a really high place to hide it.

my question: how do you convince yourself to lay off sugar? it's so hard. and addicting.

i got some of this sugar-free gum:


which hopefully will help.....because i'm already craving sugar and salivating over it and it's only 9:34 am. i reallllllly want some of those cadbury eggs.

BUT NO.
even though it's the end of the world as i know it, i won't back down.

maybe after one bite.
of one little egg.

i need therapy.
s.o.s.

its so hard to go off sugar. i haven't had junk food since March 8! i made a deal with josh that we would go off for one month. i thought by now, i wouldn't crave it, but i still do. i eat lots more fruit now, trying to crave the sugar-tooth i have! good luck to you and mike!!

I have to hide the speckled jelly beans very high up where I would need a step ladder to get to them. Then when I want one I remember that it requires more effort than I want to put into it to get one little jelly bean. I guess I could not buy them but what's the fun in that?!
Good luck with your no sugar till easter. Oh and April Fools day is on Wednesday.....

My " Cut Back on Treats story":
So I love Jelly Beans... among many, many other treats, as you know. One time I decided that I would put my jelly Bellies in a special jar... a kindness jar I called it... I would let myself have a jelly belly if I did something good and kind! Let me tell something to you! ( Happy Feet)
I was getting FAT on kindness!I found myself doing good thing for the wrong reasons~ JELLY BELLIEs!!! Know why theuy call them jelly bellies! Think about it! Didn't work. The thing that works best, is NOT to have them, even hidden ... because I always find them, no matter how high.... in a weak moment of desperation!
I went to the Gym today.... and I am certain their mirrors make me look way fatter than I am! Hugh! I need some jelly Bellies!
See YA!
Love YA!

Amy said...

i'm addicted. seriously. I LOVE candy. I try very hard to steer clear of the candy isle during any trip to the store... but it is not easy. Good luck!

Oh, and I hate April Fool's day too- no fun!
