Day two without tv and sugar... Two observations:
1. It is really quiet after the girls go to bed
2. Now that I've committed to not eating sugar it is everywhere I turn.
Yesterday I ran to the grocery store to grab some quick lunch itmes for Nora. And I turn around and am staring at Jelly Belly's. Only my absolute favorite candy in the whole world. And looking at this photo makes my mouth water.
Throughout the day as Georgia goes potty, she gets potty treats - our potty treats are M&M's. Normally, I do not crave these things - I've turned into a dark chocolate girl. But now that I can't have them, they look extremely appealing.
And then there is my evening treat. For many months I have ended the night with an ice cream sandwich. Aldi has a version of the Skinny Cow sandwiches that are the same number of points, but different and better flavors. My favorite was the Orange Dream - Orange sherbet, Vanilla ice cream swirl between two vanilla wafer cookies. Mmmm. No more ice cream sandwiches for me, though. These might be the most difficult thing for me to give up - not necessarily the ice cream sandwich itself, just the nightly ritual. And we still have a package of them in the freezer that Cornbread is going to have to eat on his own (out of my presence:)
