I'm self-diagnosing but I am pretty sure that I am a sugar addict.
Admitting is the first step, right?
So after Sunday's post and some more soul searching, I've decided to bite the bullet and enter sugar detox. I've been researching and picking people's brains (smart people with varying views) about it. This week, each day, I've tried to make smart choices. Maybe for the first time in my life I am not seeking perfection, rather I just want to do better.
I know I can do better.
This got me thinking: Why is it that offices are a breeding ground for crap food? It's like we all want to bring in the candy, the cupcakes, the cookies, and homemade breads so it gives us permission to over-indulge. The other day it was a co-worker's birthday and someone brought in cupcakes though the package called them "fun cakes." It was 3:30pm and I was craving a pick me up and those stupid fun cakes were taunting me. Instead of eating one (because really, they didn't look that great and frankly, if they aren't Cupcake Royale cupcakes, forget it) I emailed my friend berating the offending cupcakes and bemoaning their hold over me.
I've had a headache since yesterday but I haven't felt as hungry. I feel full before I've eaten my entire lunch. This could very well be the first step I've been looking for. Too bad I timed it with my PMS. Awesome fun for everyone within a mile of me. I've told my co-workers I'll stick a warning label on when it gets really bad.
"Ah Sugar, oh honey, honey. . .you were my candy, girl and you've got me wanting you."
