Okay, okay! :)

So it has been brought to my attention that I need to get a new post up (ahem, Shauna) and yes, it is true, I do. Sorry for the abrupt blog-stoppage! I have been struggling, truth be told. I have been SO HUNGRY! Like, all the time. I'm not talking about just mentally wanting to just munch on something out of boredom or emotional stuff, no, this is an actual deep HUNGER. I just always feel famished, even right after a good meal. I have no idea where it is coming from, but wow have I been bad.

Yesterday alone could have made me gain a couple of pounds. Really! Lets see, I had waffles with syrup for breakfast (we were out of milk for cereal), a pretty decent lunch, and then it went really off the rails. It was the first beautiful day in ages, sunny and around 68 degrees. I talked Hubs into taking a half day off of work to enjoy the weather with us. Of course, we stopped at the newly-opened ice cream stand down the road. I started out good and didn't order anything...and then Hubs offered a taste of his vanilla ice cream mixed with Reese's cups. OH MY WORD. Utterly delicious. I ate at least half of it for him! (How nice of me to help HIM lose weight, right? LoL)

Then we cooked out for dinner and simply put, I made a huge pig of myself. Everything was so good! Sigh. I even went back for seconds of the mac and cheese. If I'm being really honest, I'd have had thirds too, if there were any left! :)

So yeah. Not good around here when it comes to eating. Working out? Yep. I'm being very faithful with workouts, actually. But I'm still not losing weight because all of the stinking food I'm eating is killing me on the scale!

On a more personal note, I've also been struggling with the disaster in Japan. Crying about it a lot. My heart is just SO broken for the people there! And of course, I start wrestling with God over the whole thing immediately...but I'm actually starting to feel peace about everything, in a way. My Bible study has been EXCELLENT during this time of my life (Beth Moore, Breaking Free) and although I'm down to the last two weeks, I've already decided to start it all over when I'm done. There has just been some seriously life-changing stuff in there that I'm trying to make sure sticks with me. Maybe I'll blog some of it the second time around.

So anyway, that's what has been keeping me away. Shoveling massive amounts of food down my throat while grieving for thousands of strangers, I'm just a hoot, right? Well, I'm also watching a ton of college basketball. Gotta do something while I'm shoving food in my face. ;-)


  1. LOL! I went through that hunger a couple of weeks ago. Still not sure what caused it. I thought for sure I would gain 20 pounds. Guess what. Not a one. Maybe my body (and yours) just needed it for some reason. :)

    Oh, the disaster in Japan! So sad... Just keep remembering that God does not cause these things. "Therefore, you men of heart, listen to me. Far be it from the [true] God to act wickedly, And the Almighty to act unjustly!" (Job 34:10) God has to allow Satan to rule this world for a time in order to prove that he, God, has the right to rule, and that man cannot do it apart from him. (1 John 5:19; Gen 3:2-5; Proverbs 27:11; Jeremiah 10:23) Soon, God will use Jesus to put an end to all this suffering. (1 John 3:8) Then we will be able to have real peace. (Psalm 37:10, 11, 27)

    Please keep blogging about how you feel and let us encourage you. You help us a lot; let us help you! :) (((Hugs)))

  2. Wow, I can't believe you called me out like that, Miss! Gave away my secret identity and everything... If I get stalkers, I blame you.
