No Sweets or Soda, Day One

My friend Sarah is having fun WITHOUT sweets, for 30 days. Even though this could turn into that scene in Trainspotting with the creepy ceiling baby, I have decided to join her in her efforts. It's always good to do something like this when you're friends are involved, and I don't want to become her Sugar Friend who she feels like she has to avoid, the way alkies avoid their Party Friend, or songs written by Van Morrison. I am not your Brown-Eyed Girl, Sarah. Except that I am. I so, totally am.

Day one was easy. I started Blind School, as you know, and when I start a new day somewhere, I am usually so nervous that I feel too throw-uppy to eat. Done. I'm going to go pass out now.

You're welcome Sarah. I am the wind beneath your wings.

I think this is a grand idea and really wish I could commit ... not quite. I will commit to no soda before yoga as it has me trying to navigate to the restroom in the middle of yoga class -- too tricky with a guide dog. Glad day one went well.

I am glad to hear you made it through your first day. And without sugar? Hmmm. You are insane.
For days 3-5, tell Eric to sleep with one eye open.

You really are (the wind beneath my wings) & (my brown eyed girl).

Thank you for joining me in my quest to stop being addicted to sugar.

Good luck this week and if Blind School starts kicking your cus, find a vending machine and go crazy. I won't mind.

What a good friend you are! Good luck at your first day of school!

omg- remember in "Friends" when Joey stops eating meat because Phoebe starts eating it when she was pregnant. Well I have totally been eating sweets and drinking soda since you have stopped. I never drink soda anymore and hardly eat junk food so its like I have taken over what you used you eat. sort of balancing out the universe. ;)

I wrote that as I drink a cherry pepsi while eating a bag of cheez-its and eyeing my two candy bars that I just bought.

You know how you feel when you ask someone if they saw that episode of "____" last night and they reply that they don't watch tv? That's how I feel right now. I am not giving up tv. I am also not giving up soda. And despite me wanting to be happy for you all, I am like Satan, hoping you fail so we can be miserable together. That's right, I said SATAN. So maybe you should stay away from me and my refrigerator full of disgustingly delicious soda.
