Can I tell you what I love?

I love what I just did.  Want to know what I just did? Sure ya do!

I just pulled out an onion and some garlic, sauted it, pulled out a bunch of veggies from the fridge, chopped them up and threw them in the pan.  Whipped up a quick batch of couscous and threw it all together! Voila! A dinner you can feel good about. 

Ask me what I had for breakfast, go ahead, ask.  A donought.  Maybe even two.  I didn't count, I was to ashamed. 

I'm not consistent people. Consistent is not my middle name. I so wish it was.  Life would be easier, right? I wouldn't know, cause it's not.

Peace  Love and Consistency

Need. More. Vegetables.

I typically need to be in the mood to bust out one of these blogs. 

If I'm not, it will just suck and you will regret reading it. 

I have also found that after all of these hundreds and hundreds of people (ok, like 5) told me that they like reading my blog and I'm a good writer, I got stage fright.  Or blog fright.  What? People are acctually reading this?  Not just my mom and my best friends? (ok, they were counted in the 5) Real people, people.  I felt pressure to be good.  How silly is that.  Anybody remember Hee Haw Hayride? Yeah, that killed me everytime I had to be on stage.  Unless I'm a couple of drinks in, center stage is not my place. It's taking me a while to try to forget anyone ever said anything and just get back to writing for myself, thinking that no one is reading.  Kind of like dance like no one is watching, but writing and reading.  So, there you go, I think I'm off to a good start.

I have still been dragging with the whole eating thing.  Still not cheating on vegan (besides the pizza, but I told you, so it's not cheating right?), however, I have been cheating with sugar on all things good.  For instance, after Squish was born, we slept on the couch for about the first month because this was the only way he would sleep for any length of time (in my arms).  As we now know, this whole sleep thing wouldn't be resolved for some time.  Anyway, I'm digressing on my digression.  Every night after we put Ms. Moo down for bed, Mr.AP  and I would sit on the couch, I would feed Squish, he would fall asleep, and we would watch shows: Chuck, CSI, Numbers, Survivor, Biggest Loser, ect.  Chuck is the one that really stands out to me for some reason.  During this time, I would have made a batch of my favorite snack (or sometimes Mr. AP would): Cheerios, marshmallows and chocolate chips.  Yep, so good people.  Anyway, I've been making this for the last week or so (vegan chocolate chips of course).  And boy do I feel it.  I'm bloated, tired, headache, but I can't stop people!!! 

When I first started this whole thing, I was shocked and surprised at how I wasn't craving all the things I used to crave (mostly all things chocolate covered in sugar covered in chocolate).  I really truely didn't.  They could even be in the house and I was not tempted to eat them.  Now, after this whole stomach thing, I am craving all things naughty!  All the time.  I'm not sure why.  Therefore, I have not been eating as much good for me stuff as I should be, thus, I feel crappy.

I believe I need to get back into my books and try more things.  I know I promised an Alicia post about the Kind Diet, but I honestly haven't tried anything from it yet.  I 've read it, but it's a little bit more hard core than Skinny Bitch and requires ingredients that can not be found at Freddy's.  This is an excuse, isn't it.  Ok, ok, I'll try harder and be better.  I NEED to.  Everyone suffers from this sugar crazed lady, even you.  Yep, this post was written under the influence.  I'm sorry.  The first step is admitting you have a problem, right?  What's the next one....???

Peace, Love and sugar.  I mean vegetables!
