No Sugar – Day 1

Home made mayo

Today I have embarked upon a challenge of sorts. Having infiltrated what I can only surmise is a cult called CrossFit (k-ros-ph-it) I have been challenged to give up sugar as a right of passage. I will be keeping this journal to document my experience and findings. If I happen to pass away or slip into madness, maybe this will stand as a warning at the gate. Do not pass through here stay on your white horse named Glucose and ride back to The Land of Pancakedom. If I survive, I will have gained valuable knowledge of this organization.

I also made a terrible discovery my mayo has soybean oil in it; no sugar but soybean oil. If I am to complete the rites of passage, I must relinquish my mayo. This is not good. I will have to create some mayo in the lab tonight. I wonder if my children will be interested in participating.

The Mayo creation went well. Though I have quite a way to go before I can make Mayo that is as fluffy as what you buy at the store.

I will be using several metrics to rate my experience.

  • Sugar Amount (this will be the grams of sugar I consumed that day.)
  • Mental State (one to two words describing my current state.)
  • Current Weight
  • Any withdrawal symptoms
