Yes. I did it. I gave in to the Inside-Out Junior Mints  mentioned the other day. I ate is as "stress candy" (yes, I actually feel visceral relief upon eating candy when stressed) after hearing of the sudden death a young friend of my family. I held off most of the day, but I finally gave in and ate the entire gigantic box. I'm not proud of it, but not I'm going lie to you or beat myself up, either.

Right now the snow falling is of such a size (minuscule), such a perfect density, and of such directional aim (straight down) that it looks exactly like someone is sprinkling powdered sugar over my entire neighborhood. As I've said before, I love snow! I'll try to focus on that instead of my rampant desire for sugar (no doubt from yesterday's slip; now I have to train my taste buds all over again) and my accompanying vociferous Chew (they go hand in hand you know)!

I've heard that it takes about three days to overcome a physical craving for sugar, and that's about right in my experience. Mental and emotional craving is another thing altogether. I figure if I can conquer the former, the latter two will fall in line (hopefully).

It's been a good day despite the whining annoyances of sugar. I haven't much felt like hanging out with God lately, hence the absence of "yes" responses to the God time question in my daily food postings. I usually talk with Him, pray to Him, and praise Him throughout the day, so we're still connecting, just not in so straightforward a way as usual.

I wish I had something Earth-shattering to say to you today, but sometimes "meh" is as good as it gets, LOL :-)

Have a good night!
