Uh, I have to fess up. I ate some sugar. I'm on day 5 of my 7 day no-sugar-week. At least I made it from Monday through Friday, which is a work week, after all, even though I told Lori that I intended to make it for a FULL week, as in 7 days. As in Sunday to Sunday. Or at least Saturday night 'til 11:59 p.m.
Here's what happened: my daughter picked out some of those dark chocolate JoJo cookies at Trader Joe's, and after we got home and I unpacked all the groceries and fed the kids and the man, I ate one.
I knew I should have said no to buying them in the first place, but at the store, they were all packaged up in secure plastic. The kind of plastic that you can't rip apart with your teeth. The kind of plastic that you have to cut open with scissors. I didn't have scissor in my purse, so they weren't so tempting at the store.
I briefly thought about pretending they have cane sugar only or something so it didn't count, but the minute I start lying to my loyal readers is a bad minute that will make me feel worse in the long run.
And, for the record? Yum. That cookie was good.
