the prestige of isolated words  
Bullet points in ten words or less.

  • Work, work, work. Sleep. Work, work, work. Sleep. Rewind, replay.
  • Why am I not writing J/V?! See above.
  • Adderall: jury still out, but I'm focused and working hard.
  • I'm on a sugar fast. Sugar sobriety! Three days now.
  • Gelato, ginger cookies, candy, chocolate-chip muffins. Not! See above.
  • I watched Independence Day. I cried.
  • Shooting baskets: still the best thing ever.

    The sugar fast might really help you. I don't obsess about it, but I found that when I stopped eating so much sugar, I stopped craving so much sugar, and it became self-fulfillingly cool.

    Yes! I am already experiencing this. It gives me hope of cutting the stuff back longer than my experimental week. The first few days--and actually, still--it was seriously like trying not to drink. The reflex to grab something sugary was *that* strong. An intense physical and psychological imperative. But that's getting better. I actually thought of doing it because of the drinking thing--I thought, well if I can stop drinking, then stopping the river of sugar into my body would be pretty much the same thing, so maybe I *can* do it. We'll see how it goes. :)

    *nod* I remember that craving. For me, it's mainly chocolate that works my sweet tooth, and I find most commercially available chocolate too sweet now. I remain stuck on Scharffenberger's 70% bittersweet bars, though. Expensive! But delish.

    Still, I feel better about just having one of those a week rather than the massive intake of soda, sugared coffee, sweet cereals, and the like that I used to have.

    In this, as in all things, I cheer you on.

    I have a thing lately for nonpareils--I've rediscovered them. They're so freaking *good*. At least with sugar, unlike with alcohol, I don't have to go completely cold-turkey. I hope. *g*

    In this, as in all things, I cheer you on.

    *hugs* Thank you, sweetie.

    Nah, not cold turkey. At least, not for any length of time. It works itself out, after a while.
