FLARE Dare: Nancy Won Gives Up Sugar, Day 9

I've survived nine whole days of no sugar, and while it was definitely tough at times (the churro was a low point), I've made progress.

I’ve survived nine whole days of no sugar, and while it was definitely tough at times (the churro was a low point), I’ve made progress. Case in point: I breeze through the day without a single sugar craving. In fact, when a coworker who had supposedly forgotten about my challenge brings me a gift of Maynards Linkz—our office’s current candy obsession—I, all cool-as-a-cucumber, set the bag aside with a sticky note marked: “Day 11.” By 5 p.m., another coworker spots the unopened bag and asks incredulously: “How can you have that on your desk and not eat it!?!?” An excellent question, considering a week ago I would have demolished the entire thing. In one sitting. By myself. This whole impulse control thing is new and I’m kind of liking it.

Day 9 state of mind: Who am I?!
