On Self-deprivation

Okay, that title sounded way more serious than the post that follows, but anyway.

So, I decided that after 3 weeks of no meat, I would start back on it. Honestly, it has not been any practice of will to refrain from eating meat. I never even missed it; therefore I just didn't feel the need to continue to experiment any longer. Maybe if I would have gone completely vegan, it would have been different. I know prolonged, if I would have gone 2 or more months without meat, I may have started to miss it, but 1 month (or 3 weeks) wasn't really long enough to make a difference.

So, I switched things up a bit. Starting this past Monday, I am not eating any sugary snacks or desserts until May 29, a little under 3 weeks. I admit this is more of a weight-loss thing, but will also be a major test of will for me. I love my sweets- I think that was why the meatless things wasn't that big of a deal; I was able to console myself with twinkies.

Anyway, I have done well with one slip up though. Yesterday, I was digging through my purse and I found a single sort of gray in color and crusty in texture skittle at the bottom of my purse. I was desperate. And weak. And I felt sick afterward.

This is kind of sad--a crusty, almost unrecognizable Skittle.

I'm not sure if you meant it was sad that a Skittle lost its skittle-ness or that I actually ate it. But I suppose both those facts are pretty sad!

Yes, both are. I hope your sugar cravings are subsiding by now.
