I started my 28 Day Sugar Detox today. As soon as I woke up, I headed to the grocery store to buy new foods to replace my old sugary snacks. After I got home, I made this video about it.

As soon as I was done, I felt so sad. I hadn’t eaten anything all day in anticipation of creating my first healthy meal. Faced with the task of actually having to stand in the damn kitchen and put together a meal instead of just pouring a bowl of CoCo Puffs and being satisfied immediately really annoyed me.
But I did it. I created a damn SALAD for my main meal of the day and made a turkey burger, very thin, to go with it. The foot satisfied my hunger but my sadness didn’t go away. I kept thinking about those CoCo Puffs in the cabinet and how I have a half gallon of milk left and all I have to do is just eat it and be happy and no one will ever know.
But I didn’t. I grabbed my bottle of Peanuts and watched a movie with my roommates. AFter the movie I realized that I have a headache. I still have this same headache and I am so tired. So tired. And it’s not even my bedtime. I have a ton of work to do right now, all of my stories were approved by my editor and I’ve been doing the preliminary research for them, but my heart is not in it.
And I’m not a big eater. It’s just- I usually just eat what I want and I think the whole issue of not being able to do that bothers me.
I am on a sugar detox. But I want some Cheetos. Not just ANY Cheetos, the Cheddar Jalapenos Cheetos! They’re so good! Is there sugar in Cheetos? Let me check. Be right back.
Oh. It says Less than 1 gram per bag. Is that bad?
Is it cheating if I eat a few? AM I supposed to stop cold turkey in one day? That’s not healthy.
I am going to eat these Cheetos and then eat the damn oatmeal before I go to bed in a few hours.
I feel irritated and sad.
