Sugar Wars: Two Weeks & Counting  

All I want out of life is a plate of chocolate chip peanut butter cookies.

I don’t even *like* chocolate chip peanut butter cookies. I find them a perpetual disappointment. But I desperately want some.

This isn’t getting any easier. It’s not actually that it’s hard, it’s that it makes me grumpy, at least in part because I find baking soothing and these troubled times we’re living in require some real fucking soothment. But I’ve met me, and if I bake cookies, there’s no way I’ll stop eating at two. So, fuck.

I’ve lost another couple pounds, which, rather than being an inspiration, is more of a “WELL SEE THIS ISN’T THAT GODDAMN HARD I COULD JUST HAVE SOME GODDAMN COOKIES IT’D BE FINE” and it makes me cranky to know that isn’t true.

(Sorry, I’m in a terrible mood. The government’s a time bomb and I hate the world right now and I want some goddamn cookies.)

I do not want cookies, but I wanted to let you know I'm on the Sugar Wars wagon (if for entirely different reasons).

I have discovered that TEA, DAMMIT, in the quantity I've been imbibing, has a laxative effect. Ugh. I would kill for an iced raspberry mocha, and I don't even like coffee drinks that much.

You deserve a new coping mechanism for when the world is terrible, especially if the peanut butter chocolate chip cookies would be a disappointment anyway. E-books? Yarn? Fancy cheeses? (Hey, dairy is kind of good for you... calcium, protein, etc.) Baking yeast breads instead of cookies? Long, involved process, the results of which smell fantastic and are less dire on your blood sugar.

It's sad that the Sugar Wars wagon ipso facto doesn't have cookies.
