Solingen day 5: you should see the other guy. & feeding my haribo addiction

sorry, no real fighting actually happened.  JB just broke up a double play like a champ yesterday. 
He’s all fine and dandy like nothing happened.  I’d milk it.  😉
All JB wants to know is:
how do you feel about his beard?

Yours truly has a problem … more of a newfound addiction.  to sugar.
I never had too much of a sweet tooth.  Most of my life it just wasn’t around.  i even drink unsweetened iced tea most of the time (and i’ve done time in the real south).  This was all true until JB introduced me to Magnum ice cream bars and heather introduced me to HARIBO.  Well Solingen is the place where my beloved little sugared bears come to life so naturally a trip to the factory could not be passed up.    As exhibited by the above scary picture I am in a state of pure bliss/ sugar rush given to me by the ridiculous amount of free sugared samples.  
In all fairness to myself, and because I am normally an obsessively healthy person … the big bag is gifts, the small bag is mine.  Just do not leave me alone with either or i may show up to Cami’s bach party in miami with said spare tire.

I’m going to have to go on detox … any help on how to detox from sugar is appreciated.  🙂

On the baseball note:
JB’s team beat the Portuguese today!
The finals are tomorrow against GERMANY.

Hope you all have the happiest weekend!!

    my sugar addiction remedy is .. eat so much sugar that you feel sick. then don't all yourself to eat any candy, ice cream, gummy bears or drink mocha coffee, sweat tea or soda for an entire week (no cheating). however if you feel like you are about to cheat – then grab some fresh fruit to munch on. after the detox week, you won't crave those sweet sugary items as much. ps. tell JB congrats on being a rockstar and good luck this weekend.

    I cannot support your detox. However I will support MORE SUGAR. I am such a dessert person, cake for breakfast? Absolutely!

    Sorry! No advise on the sugar. But I will tell you, I too never had a sugar addiction until I was around 25 years old…I'm 29 and still have it! It's stronger than ever too. I feel like I can't go an entire day with sugar. Good luck with yours tho! Haha!

    Definitely a fan of the beard since Reed has had one for the past 2 years!! Grow it out. Also, I love a good juicing detox. Use fresh fruit to fight the sugar cravings and juice as much veggies as you want. I guarantee you won't be craving any sweets after a week. I went 3 months without sugar once (well I did use brown cane sugar, but it has a fraction of the sweetness of white sugar), best thing I ever did. Your body will thank you.

    P.S. you could NEVER have said spare tire! Just not possible – am sure you could eat whatever you wanted for the rest of your life and still look amazeballs!
