Hello, MDA. I think I'm leaving you.
Not because I think I should stop being accountable for what I eat (it's probably the best way to keep me from going crazy with food), but mainly because at one point, I was a writer, and then I stopped being a writer, and I think part of that is I spent too much time on forums like this one.
I may still keep on coming here to drop brain bombs on what's going on with my pregnancy and health, but the fact is that it'll mostly be shouting into the void -- when your only contribution to a forum is recipes and to talk about me!me!me! your thread tends to die and I am not saying this because I "want moar hitz" or a sympathy vote. This is me saying...I think I've moved on.
I like many of you, and many of you are smart and sensible people doing the work to get yo'self healthy. I'll miss you.
But I'll probably stop reading new posts and posting anything of length. I need those words.
Anyway, it's all good. If you want to see my personal NaNoWriMo wankery, it's here:
National Novel Writing Month
Yesterday was a cheat day. I won't taunt you with the delicious pie I ate (it was delicious). I also walked a 5k. That doesn't excuse the pie, but still: delicious.
Today is a semi-cheat day. I had a slice of cold pizza and I'm curently drinking kumquat tea. At some point, Mr. Onalark will rise from his coffin and we'll have buckwheat pancakes. Later, I'll probably snack on cheese and fruit, and at some point I'll start making a four-meat marinara because of reasons.
As always, take care, be healthy, be safe, and don't listen to anyone who thinks they have THE ONE TRUE ANSWER. It's a lie. They may not realize it yet (zealots rarely do), and they never may realize it, but it doesn't mean you need to be sucked down into their madness. Or, as a friend of mine once put it: "Don't stick your hands in the crazy." Or as another friend put it: "Don't feed the energy creature."
