My Body is My Own

At work this afternoon, when my energy and focus were flagging, I realized I needed a little pick-me-up. So I ran out to the car to get my fix…and pulled out, wait for it, a bag of stale jelly beans. From the hot glove compartment. Admit it, you are so jealous. Ok, it may not have been the ideal pre-workout snack, but it sure did get me good and sugared up. And then sick to my stomach. I quickly set said bag aside. But what I didn’t do? Throw it away. Maybe tomorrow.

    were they at least jelly belly flavored jelly beans? …once i ate a stale bag of raisinets (the aftermath was not pretty). sugar is really a drug… to make us stoop to such levels.

  2. Sigh. Not even. I hate to admit it…but they were just some crappy jelly beans that I found at Walgreen’s, that happened to be vegan (and 50% off after Easter). Must. Resist.

    If I’m going to consume extraneous sugar it should at least be good quality chocolate or something.

  4. Always! But with the help (moral support) of a caring co-worker, I threw those stale jelly beans in the trash yesterday.
