and attempt to give up sugar at least for a little while
Which unfortunately includes my new found love: chocolate chip ice cream
On the bright side there is no vo cake to tempt me.
I will however need to keep it quiet.
I mentioned it a couple of weeks ago to Michael and he threatened to kick me out.
You see he remembers about a year when the doctor advised me to go off sugar (even fruit juice) how terrible it was or rather i was. I have a fond memory of him getting up at about 2am and rushing to the kitchen to make me banana on toast (the only form is sugar i was allowed) in the hopes of um settling me.
I remember shaking, and maybe some slight irritability.
I also remember that it was pretty bloody hard.
Its the closest to a drug addiction i will ever come.
Ok everything is looking relatively positive for the moment.
So in hopes of capturing the moment i figure i will write about it.
Now nothing major has happened but its the little things like:
I have lunch plans tomorrow with my new veg friends who promise to show me another health food store (a rarity here)
I'm going to a concert tomorrow night (don't really know much about it but still...)
I made this really yummy dinner: i found a new comfort food: peanut pasta.
I was reminded of how amazing of a friend Michael is (big hugs tend to do that).
Erin has internet again: it kind of reminded me that everyone is not that far away. (now if only i could convince more friends to have blogs)
I'm going to Shenzhen (across the border) on sun again and i might even have female company this time. At the very least i won't have a vegetarian bashing like last time (someone trying to start an argument with me about how boring, unhealthy blah blah vegetarianism is).
I printed out a gorgeous photo of my little sis.
I'm so in love with the views out my window.
I continued reading this great book (don't know why i stopped).
I finally drafted a letter (i'm contacting some companies here to find out which products are suitable for vegans on behalf of one of a veg organisation here)
I finally sent a postcard to a friend and birthday card to my grandmother.
The apartment is clean, and has been for a few days straight.
Maybe thats it clean room clean mind...
It might also have something to do with the fact that i might be coming home for xmas (yippppay)
