Just For Fun

Okay, so I am trying to wean myself from eating sugar. Let me just say that not only do I have a terrible pounding headache, but I also am a little on the irritable side. I have decided that I do not want to be addicted to sugar anymore, so I will have to deal with the ugly side effects for a few days I suppose. It has been a really busy day and I havent really had time to collect my thoughts BUT I did get this email survey from a friend yesterday and I thought it might be fun to post my answers here so those of you who read my blog can get to know a little more about me. If any of you want to do the same, I would love to read your answers.

bethanne, i think if someone took sugar away from me well, it would not be pretty. i wish you much success. my husband and i took a challenge from a ministry we love to go on what they called a daniel fast this last january for 30 days. nothing white or any meat. this was an eye opener to our eating habits. i thought it would be easy but it wasn't. the only thing that i still do is buy whole wheat pasta.

i love your list. i never put ranch on green beans. sounds worth a try. i need to get out my crock, i don't use it much.


ps i married a red head. he turned auburn with age, still love him tho.
