Almost every day, it seems, we're getting something sugary to satisfy this temptation. One quick look at my eating habits, and one thing jumps out: I eat too much sugar. (I eat too much salt too, but that's another topic for another day.) Most of my sugar intake is in the form of candy and desserts. But I also eat fruit, and there's sugar in almost everything we buy from the store.
Sugar has always been difficult for me to resist. Even if I do say no, it's not hard to twist my arm and get me to relent. I need to toughen up. I don't need to say no every time, but I don't need to be eating something sugary every day either.
I saw some video by some science guy about how the human body digests sugar exactly like it digests alcohol, which I guess is appropriate for Team Booze Hounds.
I wish I could say I got in some good mileage over the weekend, but it wasn't to be. Perhaps I'll be able to say that this week.
UPDATE: The Oatmeal might refer to my struggle as the fighting off "The Blerch."
