The First Day of Sugar

By | September 8, 2011

Everyone in Blogland and beyond is talking about the first day of school. And yah, I suppose that’s exciting. But you know what? I have something more exciting for you.

The first day of SUGAR. As in unapologetic white sugar, naked white flour, and delightfully shameless chocolate.

It was everything I hoped it would be–and more.

Oh wait. I didn’t explain why this was the “First” day of having sugar.

Ahem. Let this be a testament to my humility as a blogger. I could have exploited this whole endeavor, acted all vegan on you–made you feel guilty for eating your cupcakes.

But no. Instead, I kept my trap shut.

Ok, this had NOTHING to do with humility–it was largely based on me thinking that it’s a boring thing to talk about AND not wanting to admit to failure.

Because going off sugar is as boring as it is challenging.

It was awful. But I did it for three weeks. I may have slipped up one or two times, but that’s about it.

Last night, I hung out with my bestie (who took up this whole no-sugar thing with me) and we INDULGED.

At first, we kinda screwed up the cookie dough. It had been a little too long, and apparently, we were rusty.

I almost had a fit. Almost.

And I looked like a troll…Or that’s what Emily and David said when I took this picture. I didn’t know how else to express my joy.

Em managed to express her joy in a more seemly fashion.

So, why no sugar? Eh…I don’t know that I’m ready to go into that. Sorry, folks. One of these days, if you’re lucky, I’ll totally bore you with the details.
