Wow, it has been forever!

I am so sorry I have neglected this blog!  It really is a terrible thing to do.  If I don't take care of it, well then no one will read it!

So a quick update is in order.

Life has been interesting.  The sun!  Now, I know technically the sun shines all day almost every where at least most of the time.  Of course when there is rain, it isn't shining.  But, that is NOT what I am meaning.  When the sun is 'up' for 23 hours, you have no night!  I miss the stars, seriously I miss them.  While we don't have a full 24 hours of daylight, it is pretty darn close and even though the sun 'sets' the light is always there.  22 hours of full sun and 2 hours of twilight.  Interesting indeed.  Although, I have to say sleeping is not as difficult as I thought it would be.

The kids are out of school.  Which means my nerves are SHOT!  Dealing with the shenanigans of my 12 and 8 year old sons.  FUn and crazy at the same time.  The 8 year old has been banned from the microwave after setting some chicken on fire.

Food.  Yeah, how has that been going? Well, honestly not great.  I had a few 'treats' during Easter and it was bad for a while afterwards.  The last week or so I have put on my big girl pants and put my foot down with myself.  Time to get real.  I am lucky I didn't gain a lot of weight.  Actually I am 153 pounds as of this morning, so my lowest weight yet.  I'll take it.

I had been eating some grains again, and that has been nixed.  Sunday was my last indulgence, no more!

I need to get on here and report back, it will help me keep it real.

I was a member of SparkPeople for many years, technically I still am, but recently I have not felt the SP love.  They are over bearing and quite frankly WRONG.  I was tired of subjecting myself to their tyranny.  I will occasionally go back and read my SparkMail, but other than that I have stayed away.  They banned one of my friends, and I think that was the last straw.  That and the really pushy, and often flat out rude/disrespectful staff was enough to make me say, 'no more.'

I have NOT been posting on most of my other support forums either.  I am trying to ease back in because I feel like it is a vicious cycle.  Eat bad, don't post.  No support (reading posts by others, etc.)/feel justified to eat bad.  Not good logic, but seems to be true for me.

I really want to get back to food blogging.  Of course that means I have to get back to cooking, hopefully I will feel up to it soon.

Sort of off topic, but my daughters have an unnatural love of mayonnaise, it is really kind of gross!

I'm so glad that you started blogging again. Thanks for visiting my blog! I am pretty much done with SP, too. Although I haven't gotten kicked out yet, I am now subject to a completely different set of rules than others. If I am going to watch anything carefully, I would rather it be my food intake, not my posts.
