Posts Tagged ‘Meringue’

I admit I have been BAD.  Today seemed like license to kill day in terms of eat-all-the-sugar-you-want because tomorrow dawns early.   Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday and like almost every year, I decide to give up all kinds of things mainly based in sugar.  Some years it’s ice cream, some years it’s chocolate and this year I’m shooting for the moon.  It’s got to be sugar this year for sure.  Because sugar is bringing on some addictive-like behaviors in me.  Not to mention a total loss of self-discipline and more importantly total disregard for the action/reaction results!  Sugar in, hips out. 

So like any true junkie about to attempt to go straight, I have over-indulged in chocolate and sugar for the last two days.  I didn’t start out with that intention, but things sure did escalate quickly into maniacal sugar begets sugar syndrome that every diet book warns you about.  

Last night, my Mah Jongg group met at my house and JUST to be nice (to whom I wonder) I decided to buy some dark chocolate-covered cranberries(well they sounded healthy) and overly-dyed red meringue.  Other than one bite someone else took I believe I ate the entire meringue!  Again, it was only egg whites AND sugar, lots of it.  What was left of those two treats were finished off by me tonight.  And you know sugar takes many forms; I had a huge bowl of pasta tonight with two meatballs and big slice of Tuscan bread and butter.  I know, I know, it sounds like a person on a suicide mission and there you see that is junkie behavior.  

SO tomorrow I have got to go cold turkey on sugar and most carbs.  If for no other reason than health.  Everyone in family has or had diabetes and many died from it.  My own sugar level is getting close to borderline and so I’m going to try and focus on that factor alone and as a side bennie lose some weight along the way.  

Wish me luck and strength and strong will and conviction and maybe I’ll make it not to Easter, but rather one day at a time.
