No S?

Since I renamed this blog and stated I had a new direction, you all have just heard of more English stuff. After all, I've been accepted to present at a conference! English stuff is still really exciting!

Okay, so basically today I have something health related to talk about. Mostly because I overindulged at work today on leftover treats, and now I'm sitting here with an unhappy stomach because my body does not handle sugar well. Oh no, it does not. I feel off, slightly nauseated, and just sorta droopy. And yet, I love the stuff and struggle to stay away from it, especially in my food-obsessed workplace (offices are crazy about food, and not good food either!)

A few months ago, Donna introduced me to the charming No S Diet. I say charming because it's so simple and so straightforward. Full of common sense ideas: eating less will help you lose weight. Eating fewer sweets will help you lose weight (or keep from gaining weight). What? So simple? I love the idea and am glad that he's so honest about it.

Well, I think I'm ready to take on part of the No S Diet--No sweets/sugar. (I'm personally a fan of eating small snacks between meals because I tend to eat smaller meals). I'm publicly declaring this because maybe it'll help me stick with it. I've done it once before and was amazed at how well I felt and how easy it was to control my appetite and not feel ravenous before every meal.

I'll even occasionally report to you all to let you know how I'm doing--but not daily or anything. Because really--then when would I talk about all my cool English stuff?

Does this mean you can't eat apples? :(

Hell no...just desserts and the like. Fruits are perfectly fine because they are yummy and nutritious.

Oh, God. You and Donna are making me feel horrible. I want to lose weight, but I don't know if I can do it the No S way. I could give up soda easily enough, but no sweets? No, I just don't think I can do it. I love myself too much.

However, good luck with your venture and the conference! I'm excited for you!
