Today I Wanted....No, NEEDED Chocolate.

I am not eating sugar for 2 months.  I've never done this before.  Today was day three.  Ok.  Clarification:  I'm not eating treats and sweets and cakes, cookies, candies, etc. with sugar in them.  Ketchup and peanut butter have sugar in them, for crying out loud.



Today was sooooooooooooooooooooooo stressful and I kept almost heading for the pantry to snarf some Easter candy.  All. Day. Long.  And then it hit me, I usually medicate my stress with sugar!  It was so rough to not be able to calm myself with a nice, delicious peanut butter cup.  **sigh**

Why was my day stressful?  Well, it started out with going to bed too late and getting up too early.  Then Ash bawled all through breakfast because Britt got to say the blessing over the food.  And no, she didn't want to say a second prayer.  She wanted to give the ONLY prayer.  Then right after they were done eating, Ash flooded our downstairs bathroom.  Too much toilet paper.  It scared her to death and she sobbed (loudly) with fright.  Now she's afraid of that toilet and wants to use mine all the time.  The clogged toilet was not hard to fix.  But the floor was a bit of work.  Then....right after that?  Ash fell down the stairs.  She wasn't seriously hurt, but it did add insult to injury.  Not her best morning.  And Elle only took cat naps all day.  And Britt would NOT stop screaming.  She screamed when she was excited.  She screamed when she was mad.  She screamed when she thought Ash might take her toy (even if Ash was thinking no such thing).  **pulling out my hair**  Gotta take the bad with the good, right?  Or something like that.  I just thanked Heavenly Father for this day because it will help me appreciate tomorrow all that much more, because it WILL be better.  **said through gritted teeth**

It will definitely be better because honestly, how could it NOT be? But girl, let yourself have some chocolate in the meantime!

I'm sorry you had a rough day! Chocolate makes everything better - that's why I have about a pound of it everyday! LOL! I'm not even kidding...

I wish I was your neighbor and that you hadn't made the "no sugar" pledge because I'd bring chocolate over and give you a hug.

Crazy day over. New day coming. :)

I used to have those chocolate days. Now I don't...no, now I can't eat sugar so I can't do candy bars.

Sounds like you had a really rough day. Hope tomorrow is a better day for you.

What a rough day you had! I would not have survived without chocolates on a bad day so you are much, much more stronger and keep it up! You gotta win your weight loss challenge.

MOTHERHOOD! It's a blessing and stressful all in 1!

Oh yes I remember the stage Britt is in now. Isaak was the same way. He still is sort of, but not as bad. He wanted to do everything. When he couldn't do it, Mica tried to help, Isaak went in hysteria because Mica was doing it and not me. Then Isaak would scream cry when I was in the kitchen. I thought Mica really did some damage. NOPE, Isaak just wanted my attention. Poor Mica probably got scolded and it was all my fault for not witnessing before scolding.

As far as chocolate goes, I want it, no need it to. It's like it's owed to me because I have to put up with this or that. LOL
