31 days sans le sucre (without sugar).

So, It's either day 4 or 5 that I've gone without "sugar". I allow turbinado sugar in my tea and brown sugar in my oatmeal. Those are the exceptions. I'm not eating sugar in general like in sweet cereals (aaaahhhh--- cinnamon toast crunch), ice-cream, brownies, cakes, pastries, sodas etc. And here's the biggie chocolate. For some reason it's been surprisingly "easy". I really felt like God wanted me to fast from sugar until my birthday and I started May 3rd. So I guess it's day 5! Yippee. I might allow myself a special treat on Mother's Day... that's still up in the air. I'm not feeling legalistic about it. I'm just excited that I'm training myself, disciplining myself to abstain.

I am proud of you, that would be hard to do. I did it a few years ago (for about 10 days) and it MAJORLY curbed my sweet tooth for a while, I guess I really should do that again ...
