I know I say this a lot, but I need to give up sugar. It’s not a weight loss thing–I keep getting some bad stomachaches when I have too much sugar, and I’ve also noticed that my energy levels have been really low these days. I’m hoping that a sugar fast will help, and hopefully one day I’ll be able to have small amounts again.
So far, I’m just trying to get through a whole day without it. This morning, before I threw out my jar of cookie butter, I had a nice big spoonful of it. And while I was at my parents’ over the weekend, I just had to indulge in a yummy Toasted Almond bar.
It ain’t easy. I crave sugar like you wouldn’t believe, and I get really cranky without it. At least I’m not throwing temper tantrums or anything–yet. Heck, I’m this close to stopping this post for a quick ice cream run. It’s taking all my willpower to keep writing.
Anyway, let’s change the subject for a bit. I’ve been a big thredUP fan for a while now, so imagine my surprise when they wanted to work with me! They carry a giant selection of pre-loved clothes at good, good discounts, so it’s kind of like thrift shopping online for brands I actually like. I got to pick out some cute end-of-summer/fall clothes, and I’ll be revealing those in the next few posts. First up are these Forever 21 shorts–I haven’t seen mint green, high-waisted shorts anywhere else before, so I was excited to scoop up this pair!
