So…the day I finally begin to get things under a bit of control I get a package in the mail.
Inside are 6 large homemade chocolate chip cookies sent by my pastor from back home as a finals “care” package.

Edit: I don’t know how to respond to people’s replies to my posts…so I’m doing it this way. Thanks for being so supportive, guys. As far as freezing or sharing…I’m afraid it’s a bit too late for that now…I should’ve just gone with my initial instinct when I saw the package and thrown it away before even breaking the seal. I think that’s what I’m going to have to do in the future though, just not even let it in my house for awhile. You guys are amazing. :)
I just wanted to say that I did NOT finish off the pack of Oreos. In fact, I didn’t even get halfway through before throwing the rest of them away. I don’t think I’ve ever thrown away perfectly good food before.
I’m not quite sure what gave me the willpower to do this. But it feels incredibly good. I’ve somehow found a quiet resolve to stop making excuses and just grow a pair. Maybe it was the public confession. Maybe it was God. Either way, I’m seeing a glimmer of hope for the first time in a long time.
On that same note, I haven’t been very honest with you guys lately. Frankly, the last two months have been hell, both with food and emotions and with people in general. I was afraid to post more of what I’ve been feeling on here because I didn’t want to sound like an annoying angsty person who loves to unload on people just to try and get a reaction. Well, sad as this may sound, I have no where else to be honest, so if you all can stand a little angst now and then I’m going to post a bit more about what’s going on in my head right now. I’ll try to keep it low-key, I promise. ;D I just can’t pretend anymore to all of you who make a point to be honest with me about your own struggles and victories.
Anyway, you guys have been incredibly encouraging and inspiring, whether you realize it or not. Thanks for reading. :)
So…just had this crazy idea that whenever I am awake to see midnight I should confess something. Don’t know why. Maybe it’ll actually shame me into 1) going to sleep at a decent time, and 2) perpetuating substantial change.
So here goes…
Midnight Confession #1: I will consume a whole pack of Oreos while up studying all night tonight. I will feel horrible tomorrow and not eat until absolutely necessary (a.k.a. my friends start questioning why I’m not partaking in the Bonfire Dinner tomorrow night). I will work out tomorrow and feel slightly better about my life. I will try once again to not buy and eat crap under the excuse of “I need it to stay awake for studying”. My test next week will roll around and I will probably fail.
Does anyone else ever feel like if they weren’t in a place they hated doing something they abhorred, they would eat and live differently?
So, I found this recipe a couple months ago, but remained skeptical enough to not try it…until now.
Oh. My. Lord.
I think my life has been forever changed. Seriously. It’s like sausage and eggs squared!!!
Anyway, they are called Scotch Eggs, and all you do is…
1 pound ground pork
1 T Italian Seasoning
5 hardboiled eggs, peeled
1. Preheat your oven to 375F
2. Mix the ground pork with the seasoning, then divide into 5 equal portions.
3. Take each portion of pork and flatten into a little pancake. Put the egg in the middle and squish the pork around the egg (it sounds a lot harder than it really is)
4. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until brown and starting to crisp
These are super easy and super filling!! I will admit that I didn’t quite use a whole pound of pork on five eggs, but thankfully I had more eggs…so it all worked out! :D
Well, at least there aren’t any more Deluxe Mixed Nuts to tempt me anymore…
