I was reading an article on here that I pretty much disagreed on almost entirely. It was blaming the food industry basically for us being fat. I won't even link the article because I don't want to "get in trouble" lol. But one thing I noticed was in the comments section...there seem to be the vast majority (all but one) persons disagreeing with this article as well. Then at the top of the page was left a comment referring to all the other persons commenting as "self righteous" people. Oh but wait, it gets better! Their whole comment was excuses of how "hard" it is and basically how we are victims of their evilness. Okay, are you ready for the seriously funny part??? Their profile pic??? It was a message etched in the sand that said "NO EXCUSES". I am not lying! I can't make this stuff up!!!
So seriously? You are trashing others for saying how they have stepped up to accountability and no one is to blame but themselves and how they were no longer making excuses and you have the audacity to be so condescending and judgmental and excuse making all the while you have a pic of "NO EXCUSES" I won't say the article nor the sparkers screen name out of respect for them. After all, I have said plenty of stupid things myself and I wouldn't want my nameattached publically so therefore I will give that same consideration to them.
Got that vent out of the way so talk to you all soon!
Several people have blogged about their addictions and so it made me think about mine. I have an extremely addictive personality! Thankfully I don't do drugs nor drink alcohal or I would be a hot mess.
But one addiction I do have is ICE!!! There are different levels to my addiction starting with...........shaved ice
my all time fav.
Then next would come..... pellet ice, crunchy goodness
And of course there is the classic crushed ice. Typically refrigerators will produce this. Last but not least, white ice...still a bit too big but easy to crunch vs. the clear ice cubes!
Yes, I know, I am a freak! I trained my sons to not like ice so that there would always be plenty for me! To this day none of the 3 sons care for ice and prefer to drink without it! lol What kind of mother would do such a thing! me!!!!
There you have it! It is surprising that it is calorie free!
and so thankful for it! We love decorating the home all up in Christmas decor! I am in charge of the interior and hubs the exterior. At times it can look a bit Griswalds because we do get carried away a bit. Tomorrow hbs is going to put some finishing touches and I plan to get in some pics and post them.
Each year we try to add one thing to the decor. So I look forward to seeing how it all comes together!
Hope you are all ready for the Holidays and gearing up for a new year!
I am super excited that I will get to be sparking for the new year!
Have a wonderful day!
Then more power to you! You have more resolve than me! Take my word, trying to go at this alone is the hardest thing ever! I have had to go without this pc for 2 weeks almost and I am nearly full blown depressed. I have gained 2 pounds and I know a lot of that was because of Thanksgiving. But I realize my dependency on sparkpeople and on my teams and my friends. There is nothing wrong with needing the help,support, encouragement etc.
I have missed you all so very vry much. I am going to try my best to get by and say hi asap! I am going into an extremely busy time for work as well. Which should help me out too. Financially and keeping out of that stupid kitchen. It will put me back into some much needed structure that I require.
I hope sincerely that I will be able to keep this bad boy going but if not, I ordered a new lap top for hubs for Christmas! lol. Terrible that I did that merely because I had to use his trashy pc for a while! But hey, he's getting a nice new one for it!
Thank you again and again for sticking with me through this trying time!
I will be back down in no time!!!
