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 shines...all....day....long! 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!
