i quit sugar one year ago

Halloween, in five days, is the Super Bowl of candy sales and consumption. Photo: the first thing you see entering our local grocery store, yesterday.

i quit sugar one year ago.

The freedom from the pull to eat sugary sweets is liberating, joyful, and revealing.

When i pass on sweets in public, and people ask why, the explanation often reveals the elephant in the room – generally speaking, many Americans are addicted to sugar.

Futile is a powerful word

biking near Disney World
Yesterday morning. We rode seven miles after jogging two mailboxes.

When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.   – conventional thinking

Not gonna lie, chocolate is wonderful.

A glass of red or white wine can be too.

You’re going to have to discover and decide if you can handle an occasional treat or if you are addicted.

Big difference.

i know.

Addicted to alcohol.

This stinks because occasional wine could be lovely, but i’ll never have that luxury again.

And by the way, i love the confidence my victory brings.

Chocolate? Not addicted to it, but could become addicted.

Futile is a powerful word.

Be careful what wisdom you embrace.

Some wisdom is really a clever excuse to cave.

A quick photo on New Years Eve from the TV.

 

“I can’t”.

What’s the most common excuse we tell ourselves and hear others say?

By chance, circumstances from a recent 10-day trip dramatically reduced the coffee and soda consumption.

With the help of a few doses of ibuprofen for headaches, have cleared the hurdles. Coffee and soda free is so amazingly liberating.

Have been drinking one to two gallons of water a day for a decade or longer. On top of coffee and a diet coke. Thank goodness for indoor plumbing.

Be well.

It’s your responsibility.

Knowing this is not enough.

Bonus Run Or Addiction?

Not Truckers Country, Runners Country.

The way things worked out yesterday – impacting today – means I get to run this morning, making it three days of running in the past seven instead of two.

Bonus or addiction?
