Changes to MOL in 2017

For a while I've been wondering what to do with this blog while also writing over at ChicagoNow (although I haven't posted there in a while either).  I've decided for now that this will be more of the archive of my personal life, as much as i feel shareable on the internet.  To that end, I'll probably write shorter but more frequent stream of conscious posts to capture something that is going on at the moment for posterity sake.

I am also probably going to split Two for Tuesday posts into separate posts instead of one post with two primary subjects.  Or not.

Precise number of crackers permitted

I'm attempting a Sugar Detox this week.  I'm weary of New Year's resolutions and goals that set one up to fail but  I figure even I can pull something like this off if it is only 3 days.   I decided to start today because that frees me up for the weekend.  Your body doesn't know the difference between 71 and 72 hours, and the only reason it is three days is because you need some measurable.  Although I suspect that is also the average time it takes to get all the sugar out if there is any science behind this one.  So I figured I'd start when I woke up today and when I wake up on Friday it's back to normal.  The hardest part will be not having an alcoholic beverage before bedtime.

If this is successful, I may make it a monthly thing, or I can try to expand it to 4 days, or do it every week.  Will just have to see how it goes.

Comments Encouraged! And the nice thing about this blog is that I rarely get spam so don't need to moderate the comments.

I've set the comments up to allow anonymous users -- but I'd love it if you "signed" your comments (as some of my readers have done) just so you have an identity of sorts.
