I’m an Addict.

So I thought I’d start out with a major flashback and make you laugh:

Ok, but seriously. This serves a purpose in today’s post. I think I’m a sugar addict. My evidence?

Here’s the Wikipedia definition:

a perceived difficulty controlling intake of sweet foods or beverages.

Here’s what I ate yesterday:

Breakfast- bowl of Cascadian Farm Kids Cinnamon Crunch

Snack- another bowl of the same stuff

Lunch- PB & J, cantaloupe

Snack- yet another bowl of sugary goodness

Dinner- Chicken, noodle, and veggie casserole

Dessert- Chocolate and Butterfinger ice cream

Here’s what I ate today:

Breakfast- bowl of goodness, cantaloupe

Lunch- PB & J, raspberries

Snack- Hansen’s Cherry Vanilla Creme Natural Cane Soda, cheese

And I’m considering an extra bowl of ice cream today, just because it sounds so good.

Even with this evidence, you cannot even begin to fathom the amount of sugar I have ingested in the last year. Chocolate, taffy, cereals, you name it. I don’t think I’ve gone a day without copious amounts of sugar in a year, at least.  I am addicted.

I went through years in college when I didn’t eat sugar at all except on holidays. It was so easy! Why is it that now that I’m home all the time and I’m a mom, it’s so much easier to just indulge. It’s not like someone else buys the groceries in my household! Nope, that’s all me!

Anyone else have the same problem?

    One word: NACHOS! I can’t help myself. When John is gone, I eat nachos like they are going out of style. Although I have also been known to eat a lot of Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pies.

    Also, I totally forgot that Mandy Moore used to be blonde.

      I know! I had no recollection of what she looked like prior to Princess Diaries. This video makes me laugh because she looks twelve. Wasn’t she close to twelve then, anyway?

    I have this problem! I make myself feel better about munching on brownies everyday by making them with applesauce or black beans. But even though I health them up it doesn’t lessen the amount of sugar I am eating everyday. I won’t even get started on the dwindling bag of “potty training” M & Ms…

      Ha! I love it, Courteney! Josh must be like, “Hey, does he really go this much? Is that healthy?!”
