Sugarbuzzed


Sugarbuzzed. Isn't that a GREAT word!
 Sug... are...Bzzzzz...Ddd
Seriously, clench your teeth and say it out loud. I'll wait.
See, how cool is that? It makes your teeth vibrate! How many other words can claim that fame.

I've been over indulging in the sweets for some time now. I quit smoking in July and rewarded myself with daily doses of fresh lemon curd. Then came the halloween candy, Thanksgiving pies and Christmas. Sheesh, I still have a hidden stash of treats left over from Santa.

  Before I end up hurting myself, I've decided to really pay attention to my intake.  I've been off the hard stuff for a few days. And just so I don't feel deprived, I'm going to treat myself to sugar only Saturdays.

Eventually, I'm going to make special treats on Saturday.  Make the most of my special day with cakes, tarts, cookies to share with the kids and not squander it on a  box of Jr. Mints. Until then I 'm working my way through a dresser (don't give away my hinging spot) full of marzipan and Nutella.

I've already had a piece, or two, today. Can you tell?

Lemon curd... now you're talking my language. I like the idea of having a splurge day. Quitting smoking is huge so good for you. The rest will come!
