Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #574 - Soda Sugar Comparison

Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #574 - Soda Sugar Comparison

Hey Mom,

Permanent link to this comic: http://xkcd.com/1793/

I am trying to give up sugar. I am. Really.

I have been off the sugar soda band wagon for some time.

In my hey day, I was up to SEVEN cans/bottles of Pepsi a day. I now have none each day, and I rarely splurge on some soda. I drink ginger ale from time to time as part of a mixed drink, but again, infrequently.

I know people who have given up sugar. My friend Chris did this last year, and my sister just decided to go off it.

I am making progress, but I am not off it. I am using reduced sugar or no added sugar almond/coconut milk in my morning coffee. I do have a granola bar every morning loaded with sugar (like eating two cookies my wife says - 11g sugar) and occasionally sweet and salty bar (7g sugar). But beyond those things, I try not to have sweets in the house too often or at all. I try to "treat" myself to a Butterfinger or a donut very infrequently. There was some Christmas candy, but that's mostly gone. I do like dark chocolate (11g sugar per third), but I eat it over four days or more and not every day of those four. So, I am reducing, but I can reduce more. I have cereal a few times a week in which a include a sprinkle of Cap'n Crunch (I KNOW!). We buy the real sugar dressings and ketchup.

I am not where I want to be yet, but the reducing is a work in progress and there is progress.

Anyway, it's been a while since I posted an xkcd comic.

I liked this one.

Here's the "see also" noted in the above comic.

Reflect and connect.

Have someone give you a kiss, and tell you that I love you.

I miss you so very much, Mom.

Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.

NOTE on time: When I post late, I had been posting at 7:10 a.m. because Google is on Pacific Time, and so this is really 10:10 EDT. However, it still shows up on the blog in Pacific time. So, I am going to start posting at 10:10 a.m. Pacific time, intending this to be 10:10 Eastern time. I know this only matters to me, and to you, Mom. But I am not going back and changing all the 7:10 a.m. times. But I will run this note for a while. Mom, you know that I am posting at 10:10 a.m. often because this is the time of your death.
