So apparently Google doesn't allow you to follow other blogs via Blogger anymore.  Color me confused.  You can follow via Bloglovin, which is how I read my favorite blogs!

Why Do I Do This?

I just finished lunch and was craving something sweet.  I'd made some caramel corn last night - it was okay.  Some of it turned out well, the rest was a wee bit....soft?  You want caramel corn to have a little crunch to it, right? 

Now I hate to waste calories on food that is just okay, but I do it all the freaking time! 

I am trying to lose weight. I work out 5-6 days a week and log most of my food.  Most.  I'm a lazy logger.

But last night I grabbed a bowl of caramel corn and had it for dessert.  Was it good?  Not really.  I didn't even finish the bowl.  Just ate enough to feel bad about it.

Today, what do I do?  Stop in the kitchen after lunch and pick at the damn caramel corn!  After eating some I got a little annoyed with myself.  Because it wasn't that good and I was still eating it.  And now I'm writing about it because it bugged me.


I may have a slight food addiction.  The food is there and I'm compelled to eat it.

I think I should just throw the whole container away.  Then I feel bad for wasting all that time making it! Does this happen to anyone else?

Actually Alana

Hey out there in the blogsphere!  Not that I think anyone will be reading this blog, but I have a good imagination.

I wanted to start blogging again because so many crazy, random thoughts go through my head day after day.  I considered posting them on Facebook, but sometimes (hell, most of the time) I don't want everyone I know to read that stuff. Some people use FB as a place for their word vomit, but that is not me. I try to keep it semi-private in the real world, you know?

A little about me - I am a Navy Wife!  My husband, Mister F, has been active duty for over 16 years!  We've been married over 11 of those :)  I'm a stay-at-home mom of 3 kids.  A1, is 5, A2 is 4 and A3 will be 2 next month. I am lucky to be able to stay home with them, but let me tell you there are some crazy shenanigans that go on around here.  Cuh-ra-zy.

I am a wannabe runner.  I started running after having my son a little bit, picked it up again after my second, got into it again after number 3.  I'm not fast. But I'm out there doing it.  My farthest distance is 5.5 miles back in 2010.  I recently did 6 miles of 3/1 intervals which was huge for me.  My goal is to complete a 10K sometime before my husband deploys.  A 1/2?  It's always possible :D

We recently moved back to California from Maryland and I am lonely as hell.  I kinda miss MD - I swear to you I never thought I would say those words.  I just miss my friends and haven't had an easy time making any here so far.

That said, I figured why not get it all out in this blog since I don't have many people to talk to right now.  At least I can get my obsessive, crazy thoughts on paper, right?
