Full Disclosure

This is a blog about our journey. And if you're reading this, you're part of it too.

Chick-Fil-A has half-price shakes every weekday.
Sonic has 2-for-1 floats after 8 p.m.
Dairy Queen has a Nutter Butter Blizzard this month.
I have a recipe for Peanut Butter Stuffed Hot Fudge Cupcakes burning a hole in my Recipes folder.

I've been a tad-bit angry today.


Because for the last four days, we've been on a restrictive fungus-eliminating diet.

The only sweet things we can have are green apples, lemons and berries.

Four days people.

With apples and berries.

We've had so many lemons.

In desperation, I even created a raspberry lemon concoction that we mixed with sparkling water. 

It actually wasn't that bad.

Don't get me wrong. 

Those fruits are good.

Just not as the only option for two weeks.

Supposedly, after two weeks, we'd either feel so good we wouldn't want to go back to eating the way we did or we probably weren't needing the diet that badly.

So today, at four days in, I was at the grocery store looking for fish for dinner tonight.

I was trying to source out the best option taking into account mercury, toxicity, etc.

I walked down the cookie aisle.

I almost cried.


Soft Batch.

I could eat a whole package on my way to the fish department.

People do that, right?

I wanted to grab a spoon and eat what looked like a container of whipped cream.

Then I left the grocery store and drove past a donut shop.

I thought about going in and buying a whole bag.

Just for me.

Of glazed.

And cake.

And chocolate.

Maybe some sprinkles.

I think I'm having an issue.

So, four days in, we're caving.

We don't do restrictive diets well.

To be fair to the diet, we have noticed some improvements with how our sinuses and skin feel, so it's not all bad.

But we figured we'd try going back to normal for a few days, see how we do and then get back on it if we start feeling badly again.

At least then we'll know we legitimately have to say no to the sugary goodness that we miss so much.

To top it off, I didn't get the fish thing figured out, so we're going out for dinner too.

Today is either a complete food fail or a complete food win, depending on how you look at it.

Berries vs. Blizzards. 

Maybe next time, berries.
