All of us are getting older. I am certainly not as far down my path as some, and I hope I have a really long time left, but sometimes I feel a difference. Today I had an audition early and got pretty sweaty at the lengthy dance call. I had the rest of the day off, so I decided to treat myself to lunch and a movie. I got a burger for lunch and a treat at the movie and pretty much destroyed my budget for the day, but I was okay with that because I had not used any of my discretionary points for the week. What I was not OK with was the way it made me feel. I was a bit sodden down after lunch, but the treat destroyed me. I got chocolate covered almonds as a decent choice (but it was still candy). I thought I was doing ok but by the time they hit my system I could barely see straight. I had the whole shebang: Headache, rushing pulse, and I felt antsy. It is official: I cannot do sugar anymore. When I was younger, as I am sure was true for most of you, I could put back just about anything. Now I feel worse after eating too much sugar than after drinking a bit too much. It is a little odd because candy and sweets have been such a big roadblock for me. I guess this is just another little bit of incentive to be smart about it.
