Truth!!!! I am faced with a real dilemma! I went through my pantry, freezer, and refrigerator! I try not to be wasteful; however, as I took inventory, I realized I truly have a “sugar” problem! In my refrigerator, I had almost a full gallon of peach lemonade and three six packs of 16.9 ounces of Pepsi. I also have plenty of water.
In my pantry, I won’t even begin to list the sugar filled items; but based on the refrigerator, I will allow you to imagine my pantry (at least three packs of peeps reside there)! I love orange slices (not the fruit ones), circus peanuts (not the roasted or boiled ones, although I love those, too), and various chocolates! I suppose one would say I am a junk food addict!
The freezer is a whole subject of its own. Ice cream, oh my goodness! It looks as if they announced a coming shortage of snicker ice cream bars and nutty buddies! A 10 layer chocolate layer cake greets me each time I lift the freezer lid. I am sure if I searched further, I would find many other sugary items.
Now, for the dilemma! After reading several articles about the effect of sugar on my body, I have decided I need to eliminate sugar from my diet. Since I don’t want to be wasteful, I am sure it will take me years to eat my stockpile because I don’t want to poison someone else’s body. However, I don’t want to continue poisoning my body either! Do I eat my sugary bounty or do I wait until the expiration date and discard my spoils?
All this thinking about what to do about my dirty little habit has made me hungry. I think I will get a Pepsi, a package of Peeps, and a nutty buddy and consider my options a little longer.
Until next time, Hester
