Sugar Experiment

I’m currently trying to figure out why I’m so tired all the time.

My normal sleeping hours are from 10 PM – 5 AM. However, I’ve been to bed earlier all week. Usually I’m able to get right out of bed in the morning with no problems. Lately, I wake up and have to force myself out of bed. I’ve also been falling asleep soon after laying down, which is not normal for me at all (though I do like it).

So, for the experimentation of it, I thought I’d not have any sugar today. None at all.

That lasted until 7:30 AM when I had 3 Girl Scout cookies (Tagalongs). :sigh:

However, that’s not really what I meant when I told myself I wouldn’t have sugar. I meant no jelly beans or tea with sugar; I have both at the house. I meant no Swedish fish or soda at work. I meant no PBJ for lunch. And, I meant none of any of those consumables when I get home tonight, either. I want to see if it might make a difference for the better. Maybe I can skip the sugar highs followed by sugar lows. We’ll see, I guess. Maybe I’m just still sick.

I know those Girl Scout cookies had sugar in them. What cookie doesn’t? I’m still not going to count them, though.

    Or you could be just getting older. But eliminate the sugar first!

    I don’t think it’s a getting older thing. I was able to stay up later last night and wake up a bit easier this morning. And that was without completely cutting out the sugar. I still need to do that some day.

    There are other factors, too, that keep this from being a well controlled test. Like the fact that I’ve been sick for 3 weeks now.

    It would be difficult to eliminate the getting older factor of the test. 🙂
    Keep up the cutting out sugar though, it can only help you in many ways.

    I want to be thoroughly scientific, so I shall dispense of getting older while the experiment is running.
