I made it all of ten days without sugar in any form before my brain started trying to knock me off the wagon (it was a really good try, frighteningly). It cooked up this charming little scene:

My family and I all wake up on the morning of a holiday—or maybe just the weekend of someone's birthday—and have a breakfast of tea, bacon, and grain-free scones sweetened with maple syrup. The sun is streaming in through the windows, the kitchen is sparkling clean (plus we got some little ruffly curtains for it that are fluttering in the breeze), and everyone is abnormally vibrant. We all sit around the table, and I take off the yellow apron I also do not actually own, and we cheerfully have piles of bacon but just two scones each, appreciating them for the rare and special treat that they are.

See? my brain said. That would be perfectly healthy and really lovely. And it couldn't happen without your Good Friend sugar!

I hope 355 more days will cure me of such fantasies, but right now I am weak and the above scenario is getting penciled in for January 1, 2014.


  1. Such a beautiful fantasy...I hope it comes to pass.

    I wish you success in your challenge ahead.

    Remember "Be transformed by the renewal of your mind" (Rom 12:2)

    AND..."nobody's perfect"..."place yourself lovingly in the hands of the Father".Forgive yourself if you fall short of your goal; but don't let that stop you from getting back into your healthy mindset.

  2. They must have been forced to face several uncomfortable issues as far as
    the use of their i - Phone is concerned. , the Samsung Galaxy S
    came in one available option, which also became a huge hit.
    It is priced at around $399 with a 2 year contract and $599 without one.

  3. Standard & Poor saw fit to downgrade Ford's corporate credit rating to CC in March. Of course, it isn't just books that
    you're going to put on a color e-reader tablet. One important feature of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus White Smartphone is its camera of 5 Mega Pixel.

  4. Google TV is an application available on select Sony high definition televisions, Blu-ray
    Disc players and Logitech's Revue. There are Blu-ray home theater systems which have the capability to stream Netflix, Pandora, You - Tube, or other media applications, Apple TV and Roku XD is technology that basically gives you the option to not have to pay for a Blu-ray player. The speed of our broadband lines also remains unknown for the perfect enjoyment of movies in our tests with an average of clogged lines playback was smooth but the start time of the film was not at all constant, reaching even to few minutes.

  5. Such addition shall greatly improve specific location detection
    typically, in addition to detecting location distance relative to other objects.
    Another deal offering LCD as gift item covers a tariff offering.
