Sugar - free

After eating (literally shovelling) fluffy bright green mint cream into my mouth ( middle of a mint ripple mud cake mmmmmmm) I actually thought what on earth am I doing? Are my sugar cravings leading me so astray that the thought of eating green cream is actually inviting??? Ofcourse, in total impulsive fashion I thought I would go totally sugar-free. Rid my body of such impurities! Anyone who knows me realises that this is quite a challenge. No more sugary tea. No more soft drink. No more raiding my diabetic husbands hypo stash of chocolate bars. Oh my - no more chocolate bars.No more chocolate royals. I will stop now otherwise we will be here for days.I am now 10 days sugar-free....... and it hhuuurrtttssss. Yes,it is really hurting my feelings.
However,strange things are happening. My headaches have settled down considerably. I am sleeping better and have more energy. My peepers are open BEFORE the alarm - even before the kids. My mood is a little lighter and I seem to be constantly smiling at strangers.
Bizarre.
I am now a believer.
Give it a try

My slump in motivation is now a distant memory and have been working on some new cards so here is a peak.



Stay tuned - more in my bag of goodies

okay maybe the sweet thing is working for you - but I agree with Ms Lamden - go without tea?! not ready to take the sugar free to such extremes :) the new card looks great.

Have cut out my killer python and coles chocolate chip biscuit habit and it is hurting my feelings I can tell you.

Love the cards.

It's interesting to see just how pervasive virtual memory has become in our every day lives. It's like everywhere I turn, I see something with a card slot or USB jack, haha. I guess it makes sense though, considering how much cheaper memory has become as of late...

Gahhhhh... I shouldn't be complaining. I can't get by a day without my R4 / R4i!
