The Ultimate Challenge

So what do you think of the new layout? I think it's just like my sister's, Marisa's, but oh well. Great minds think alike, eh?

Our little household is going to be radically changed in the next month or so. Jonas, Mandi, and I are not allowing ourselves to eat desserts for the next month. We are also challenging ourselves to get out of bed earlier so we can exercise a little bit more. Crazy, you say? You'd be right, but I am excited! If I've not yet alluded to my trial with sugar, best not get me started now. To put it succinctly, I've been trying to "quit" sugar for three or four years now, with no success. I'm a binge sugar addict: I can control myself for a week or so, but then I just eat and eat and eat sweets. I keep eating them despite my headache and general ill-feeling. I've tried reading about how bad sugar is for me, but to no avail. Apparently, knowing the bad consequences is not a strong enough deterrent because I don't get really overweight. Sigh. But! I have my family support, we are in it together, and I am eager to be better.

Supposedly, day four and week two are the hard spots. I'll let you know how things are going.

Hey, nice template! Good luck on the sugar thing. I don't even attempt it, because I know I couldn't/wouldn't want to. I just like to eat sweets!

Now I'm so confused! Who's blog am I reading?? I thought you were already DOING the no sugar thing. Didn't you last 6 weeks or so last time? Good luck in your endeavor! I will not bring you any sweets if we move there.

Oh yes, your confusion is quite understandable, Amy. This is probably the dozenth time that I've attempted such a thing.

And Marisa, Jonas doesn't like our colors. He said, "You made us pink?" with a tone of disgust and disbelief. So we'll be changing again soon.

I am so laughing right now. Do you need my S ring again? Good luck. I am just sad that I am not near you to try to quit with you again. How many times did we try? like 50 k-bye
