Ecstasy is a glassful of tea and a piece of sugar in the mouth. ~ Alexander Pushkin

It has been two days with no sugar. No cakes, no brownies, no cookies, no white or wheat bread (had rye bread with no sugar in it last night), etc. Who knew it would be this hard to not eat sugar.

I am craving a cuppa tea and pain au chocolat. I think the whole reason I am having these horrible, horrible cravings is because I am not allowed to have them.

I have been asked to make a few St. Patrick's Day cookie bouquets with my Irish shortbread cookies. I got this recipe from Mrs. Burns (she is the mum of a very good friend) when I was in Ireland. It is seriously the best cookie in the world. How am I suppose to make these and not eat one? I have no self control.

I feel like an epic failure today. I had a Diet Coke with lunch. This might be my true addiction. Last Autumn I went 6 months without Diet Coke. The first couple of weeks were the hardest and then I didn't miss it. I just need start again tomorrow.

I am definitely sick of being the "fat one" among my friends. Ugh.

That is enough of my feeling sorry for myself. Well, at least for today.

It should get easier this month. I am not baking anything for 2 months! We are moving the weekend of Agnes' birthday so I don't even need to make a birthday cake right away. That should definitely help!
