Who invented sugar?

OK...I've had it.

Who is the idiot who figured out how to turn a harmless crop like sugar cane into this product that totally consumes me? Please, if he is dead, somebody revive him/her so I can kill them again.

I get up and go to the gym and workout. Good Boy! I had a banana to start the day off. Get the fructose in your body. You don't want to fire up this fabulous machine without some fuel, now do we? It's a kick butt workout. Interval training on the elyptical (sic) machine. Core work with weights, leg workouts, curls, cable flys...all leading to two rounds of lunges followed by cleans.

Then I come home. My grandson commits the crime of leaving an open bag of M&Ms on the kitchen counter. Dastardly child! How dare he?

Many people hear voices....not me....I hear food. The bag screams for me to come over...which I oblige. I take a handful and thrust them into my mouth before I realize what is happening.......

AGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. I've fallen again. I am left to feel good that I didn't finish off the bag. I guess progress comes in small increments.

Maybe some day I'll be a strong enough individual to say NO!.....

We can alway dream, can't we?

Take care.

Who invented sugar?

Well Unitas the good news is if you so choose you could walk to the birthplace of this dastardly invention called Chocolate.  It was made originally by the Mayan civilizations of South America approximately in the 500 BC . However the Cocoa bean was first grown about 1500 BC by various Indian tribes in and around the area generally know as Mexico!

Chocolate is a serious addition and should carry a government health warning....but why blame yourself when there are others you can blame...the all American way right!!!

Well JellyDonut...

One hour a day with Tae Bo and a 1200-1500 calorie diet for the past year.  And yes, I do allow myself some room to cheat...because if I didn't, I wouldn't have been like Unitas being able to stop...that whole bag would be gone.

50lbs and still losing....

We are going to have to talk about that diet!  Were you cursed by a gypsy as in Stephen King's book / movie Thinner?  South Beach?   Disease?  Overworked?  Too much time on the computer you forget to eat?  Spill the beans Mom.  This time of the year in cold Cleveland, I'm headed in the other direction and need help!

Never happen, you like chocolate too much...look on the bright side, at least it's been proven chocolate helps prevent cancer.

Actually, want to know a little tip....you can still have them, instead of buying the one big bag of m&m's buy the bag with the individual packets...that way it helps with the temptation....

50lbs and still losing....

Who invented sugar?

I'm the same way. It's not the fast-food that gets me, it's the candy. Maybe some day my teeth will fall out and I'll go on a diet. At least you worked out beforehand. That's better than I can say, for the past few months anyway.

Now excuse me while go eat some spoonfuls of Kool-aid mix (the kind with sugar already in it).
