Adventures in Dieting: The Last Cheat Day

A few days ago, it was about one month since I had eaten any sugar!

I was curious to see what sugar would do once re-ingested, since it had been so long.

So I had a cheat “evening” as I call it because I was only eating a cake + ice cream.

Before eating the sugar, I was feeling absolutely fantastic. The sugar was eaten last Friday night, and I had just completed one of the hardest work week’s in a while.

Experiencing Extreme Choice Fatigue & Culture Shock

Today was grocery-shopping day in Cyprus. I grabbed my wallet, walked to the store, and…

WOW. TOO MANY DECISIONS!

The store was huge! It was like a small Walmart which, in Europe, is huge.

First Impressions of Cyprus

Just last night I landed in Pafos, Cyprus, and I’ve spent my first day exploring & preparing for my extended stay here.

I’ve met locals, tried some local cuisine, and even went to the beach! Here’s what I think so far…

I’m Now Bulgarian

First I must mention just how “Bulgarian” I’ve become. I’ve adopted so many traditions of Bulgaria’s culture that it’s a culture shock coming here!
