I'm So Offensive and Some Hard Hitting News

Every now and then I will see a passive agressive comment on Facebook or Twitter that seems to be in response to some rambling I've spewed in Crazy Mother fashion.  I've wondered, 'Is it about what I wrote on the blog or is it sheer coincidence?'  And then, Carly Simon starts singing "You're so Vain" in my head, and I dismiss it. 

Theoretically, someone could be offended or upset about what I write.   I get it.  I sometimes divulge too much.   My trashy mouth, bad taste in books, and lack of fitness/nutrition training may be offensive to those with delicate sensibilities.

But since passive agressive is not my style, I thought I'd take a little time to address any discontentment. Here we go.
For the record, I love this blog. 

I love to write.  It is fun. I love it when people see me around town and tell me that they have been reading my blog and that they enjoy it, think its funny, etc. etc.  Love it, love it, love it.

Crazy As A Mother allows me to exercise my creative writing skills (something that is not allowed in my chosen profession) . . .


. . . while at the same time share topics that interest me and are hopefully of interest to others. 

I TRY not to preach.  I don't always succeed.  When you talk about food, nutrition, and fitness it comes off as preachy to those that don't give a shit about these things.  
Still, nothing said here is gospel.  In fact, there is an entire page on this site dedicated to dispelling any misconceptions regarding my credentials.  Because I have none. 


Rather, my posts are merely a diary of sorts. A glimpse, if you will, into what I do in my daily life to help prevent myself from ending up cruising the aisles at Walmart with my backside hanging over the edges of the seat of a motorized cart.

The things I write about are simply what works for me . . . to keep my weight under control, to keep my heart and other vital organs from failing at age 40, to keep my blood sugar and cholesterol in check, and to make me feel good about me (because who doesn't need a little of that from time to time).

What works for me may not work for you. But, maybe . . . just maybe . . .  I will motivate you . . . without being preachy and a jackass about it . . . to figure out what works for you. Or, maybe, I'll just make you laugh every now and then. And, that's fine too. Laugh with me, laugh at me, I don't care. Just laugh.  It is really not my goal to turn you over to my wicked ways. 

I try to be truthful in my posts.  I am not going to paint a rainbows and unicorns picture of what I eat.

I think you should hear it all.  The good, the bad, and the ugly. That's why I tell you when I go off the reservation and eat my way through a package of Oreos. That's why I openly admit to loving libations and . . . much to my mother's dismay . . . to drinking just a wee bit too much a little more often than I should. 

The point is that I'm not perfect and I'm not going to present myself as perfect.  Besides, it's not like I'm trying to make it to the Olympics or win a body building competition.

Anyway, if you disagree with what I write, feel free to leave a comment here or on my Facebook wall.   As an attorney, I welcome a friendly debate.   I'm not afraid.  And, as the administrator of the blog, I can assure you that anyone who gets ugly with their comments will be deleted.  Hee hee.

Now to the important stuff . . . some hard hitting news.  I read online yesterday that Kristen Stewart cheated on Robert Pattison Edward.

With the married director of her last movie. 

I'm not impressed with her or her choice of jackass cheaters. 

To make up for her errant behavior, she made a public apology.  She could have picked up the phone and called Robert Edward, but she opted for a more personal approach.  So, if you see him be sure and tell him about it.   Just in case, he hasn't heard.

I've got to say that this may be the best news I've heard all year.    Maybe, when Edward comes to my New Year's Eve party next year, he will be single.

And, here is Tuesday's bad day of eats (I was swamped with work and chained to my desk all day):

Breakfast:  An omelet.  No picture.
Sorry, I forgot that I have a food blog.

Morning Snack:  fat free Greek yogurt with  a
nectarine and some cherries.

Lunch:  Green Monster.  I drank most of it before I took the picture.
I probably drank 5x this much.  And, my blender broke so
you can see the ice chips and spinach.  Blech.
Afternoon Snack Part I:  Laughing Cow Cheese,
hummus, and celery.

Afternoon Snack Part 2:  I still had some left over hummus
and laughing cow cheese.  Needed a new delivery mechanism:

Afternoon Snack Part 4:  Venizon summer sausage
shot and killed by my friend Mary Kate
and Wasabi Almonds
Dinner:  Skinny Taste Pork Carnitas on a bed of mixed
greens, rotel, and yellow peppers.  A taco with the same
pork and guacamole.  Black beans and fat free sour cream.

Evening Snack:  Almond Milk Ice Cream from
and peanut butter frosting from
This whole bowl is less than 100 calories and has very little sugar.
I LOVE IT.  Thank you stuft mama!

Did you notice that I grazed through the afternoon?  My lunch was too puny, and I was mad hungry by mid afternoon.  Upon reflection, my Tuesday food was not substantive enough, but I assure you that I made up for it on Wednesday. 

Happy Thursday.
