A Few Things On My Mind...

* Why can't I kick my sugar habit? It is like poison to my body, makes me cranky, unable to sleep and I believe is the culprit for my debilitating migraines. It seems like the logical thing to do right? Well I successfully cut it out for a month or so when I was following the Primal Blueprint which is much like the Paleo Plan. If you are not familiar with this concept of living you basically cut out all man made processed foods and try to eat like cavemen did before agriculture and the like.

I felt better, slept like a babe and had a reduction in headaches but as soon as a tiny bit of sugar crossed the threshold of my mouth I was hooked again! I can't just have a little bit... once I have a taste I am going back for sweets until bed time then the guilt sets in. I need to do something different I need to remember that after the sugar withdrawal I will FEEL so much better.

I wish I was one of those people who didn't care for sweets, or baking...how can I get my baking fix without partaking in even a taste? I know a taste is ok for some but it's a slippery slope for me...

Well today is a new day and I'm going to try my darnedest to keep the sugar to an absolute minimum! I didn't even use splenda in my coffee this morning...yay for small victories!

* Where has my motivation gone? I have tons and tons to do both domestically and for Cookie Louise Pleaze and all I want to do is lay on the couch and watch my DVR...SAD! While the spring cleaning bug seems to be biting everyone else I just feel well...meh. As far as CLP goes I would really love to make some new things for my shop, do a few ReStyles I have in the works, complete my Pay It Forward 2011 gifts and work on the two wedding orders I have and I have only spent an hour or two total this week. Inspiration please come back I miss you terribly!

Sorry for the rant but thanks for listening, if you have any tips or advice I would love to hear it!

  1. Girl, I'm with you. I'm COMPLETELY unmotivated in the worst way. The second I get free time I head straight to my couch to watch Project Runway in my pj's. What do we do?! The weird thing is I've seen a lot of people around the blogosphere feeling the same way.

    Maybe we all meed to band together and do some guest posting or something....something that will inspire us and help us all get out of our ruts!
