I'm BAAAAAACK. I know...oh and as promised, Krystal, this post is for you my homie.
This is what I did today. Down the road from me about a mile is this fantastic Winchestershire apple tree. wait, is Winchestershire a real apple name or something my dad made up? Hold on. I'll ask the Google gods...
Yeah. He was just naming them something romantic so we would eat them. Okay...I'll call them Heirloom apples, since they are most likely a leftover from a homestead located there at some point in time. Anyhow, its fantastic and since my own apple trees are a bit manic depressive this year (my greening had an unfortunate suicide attempt last summer and is still in ICU), I'm needing to shop in the ditches for my apples. Okay, so I go to pick these fantastic apples (did I mention how fantastic they were?) and came home, peeled 2 and put them in the blender with some bee balm and a tablespoon of honey. YAY! It was good and aside from the honey (my hippie princess friend lost all her honey bees to mice last winter), it was free and organic!!!
1 Tablespoon honey = 64 calories
2 small wild apples = 120 calories
1 bee balm blossom = 0 calories
My carnivore hubby will be having pork chops slow cooked in this apple sauce. We will see how well it goes over with him. He tolerates my ditch cuisine pretty well. If its good, maybe he won't freak out too much when I tell him I REALLY want to take that online holistic healing class this winter...its ONLY $1600.00. That is less than the roof is going to cost. If things get too ugly, I can bring up the air conditioning reclaim machine thing he spent most of last year paying for.
I owe my soul to the Snap-On guy by the way. It was the only way I could keep my first born without having to guess his name.
So, as discussed in group-omg I'm almost done!!!-I need to focus on eating little tiny bits several times a day instead of waiting until I am hypoglycemic before I eat something. Also, my water intake is pitiful. While I can honestly say I have thrown soda out the virtual window of my uber-healthy temple, coffee is my love. Oh I love coffee. My only saving grace is the fact that I am a hard-core coffee snob that will only partake in 1 or 2 cups per day IF it is decent. I am not an off-the-wal-mart-shelf coffee drinker. If I wanted to drink pissy mud, I would harvest it for free from the cow yard. No, I pay for super fresh coffee that has never seen the inside of a freezer or the inside of a supermarket for that matter. It is not marred by thick, over pasteurized cream or flavored with synthetic waxy chocolates and high-fructose corn syrup. Its just really good, flavorful, fresh coffee. Every once in a while I will throw some mulling spice or some organic chai in the basket for flavor...mmmmm. I friggin' love coffee. I do have a coffee pot that can brew 1 cup at a time, so I can limit myself that way and I can make a point to only partake once a week. It's not something I can't say no to, its just something I really enjoy and I don't want to say no until I absolutely have to.
So, I made my excuse. I'm aware of it and today I focused on hydration and nibbling. Aside from having to pee allot...Nope. That's it. I pee alot.
Another concern. My Strattera gives me instant heartburn. When my stomach is tiny, I'm afraid I will just burst into flame because there will be no room for heartburn. I will skip heartburn and spontaneously combust. Wow. What a grease fire that will be...I may need to discuss this with my doctor. The Strattera problem--not so much the grease fire. I wonder if he will suggest living retarded for a few months to give my stomach a chance to heal before swallowing pills again. Hmmmmm. I'm not sure how I feel about that.
