No Sugar: Week 3

Just want to give you all a little update on how I'm surviving the sugar cravings as I go into week three of my goal to stay away from sugary sweets for 45 days...

Yesterday, JE, my bloggy-mate/co-worker, brought Berger cookies into the office. If you're wondering what a Berger cookie is...

Yep, that's a big ol' slab of chocolate on top there.
I think there's about twice as much chocolate as there is cookie.

These are locally made here in Bawlmer (Baltimore to you non-local folk)... don't be fooled they're not that fabulous, unless you really are trying to achieve death by chocolate. In my opinion these cookies are over the top sweet. On top of the Berger cookies another co-worker brought in...

Erm, wasn't Christmas almost a month ago?

There's also two bags full of miniature chocolates lying around. At any given moment there are 4 different areas of temptation in my office: File drawer near my desk, supply closet, kitchen, co-workers ledge.

But wait there's more...... Every month a cake is brought into the office to celebrate just happens to be here today...

Best birthday cake ever!

Anyway, so with all that temptation at my finger tips... have I caved???


I haven't been tempted to touch a single bite... it's kinda like being a married woman... I'm married to my new diet. I can look but I can't touch ;)

Let me put this into visuals you, my fellow fangirls, can all understand...

repeat with me now ladies.... you can LOOK at that delicious tasty treat:

Look at this GQ motha-trucker

But don't TOUCH...
Naughty, naughty!

Just once more ladies so that you don't forget.... Look

at the sexual white chocolate

at the goodies

But don't TOUCH!!

Even if it's so very tempting... especially when the goodies look like they want you to take them to bed (chocolate + bed = messy sheets... and you really don't want to ruin your 500 thread counts, do ya?)

I'm totally with you on this - I started a post FOREVER ago that was all about the trails and tribulations of dieting and food and crap like that but although it is turning into a short(-ish) novel, it still isn't anywhere near postable. {{{sigh}}} anyway, JJ told me that you were tweeting the other day about a "Fit For Forks" idea you had (I hope it was you anyway - lol) and i think IT'S TIME. (and not time to have ckae wither - lol).

I was planning on linking up to you because you've done such an awesome job here and documenting your progress and stuff - will definitely keep you posted and if you have any ideas in particular please let me know! email me or something because work sucks nuts this week and i am having a hard time doing anything but non-Twi stuff (boooo!!).

: )

veri-word = "ingst" - it's like blogger knows shit...

The "fit for forks" idea was Lisa's :) I showed her this post she said she needed to get her butt in gear for forks and I said I'd be happy to provide tips and advice :) And I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to help you with something for twitarded!!

I'm not sure if I can go to forks yet, this year is wedding year!! 2 cousins and 2 friends all in sept, oct and nov! So we'll see how that goes :)

(I don't have a veri word.. what gives)
