Medicinal Nachos

It is 10:15 am. And all I can think about is food, particularly, nachos. I want nachos for dinner. 

I want to go to stupid Walmart even though it is the dumbest place on earth and buy their delicious salsa. And I want to assemble a giant tower of Doritos, seasoned ground beef, salsa and cheese. 

This can't be normal. Nachos won't make my cold go away. But I want them nonetheless. 

It's been said that food is love, maybe that's why it's so easy to turn to.

No is Ladybug's favorite word now.  One of her first ways to commuicate was shaking her head no, so this wasn't that much of a surprise.  She answered no to everything.

But this is different.  This is her tiny little way of asserting her baby independence.  Last week, I asked her to hand me something that she'd picked up.  She paused and thought about it, then said the tiniest little itty bitty  no  .  It was that small.  Like she knew she was entering dangerous territory. And straight to the corner she went.

Tiny figure = Ladybug in the corner

She said "no" all the way to school this morning.  I asked "No what?" she didn't have an answer.  She gave a chorus of nos while eating dinner.  Still not sure what that was about, but she means no.  She really does.

I know that tantrums and all of the "fun" that is a part of the terrible twos is coming.  And we'll have to keep tweaking discipline as she matures.  So far she seems like a big sensitive Sally like me, which means the corner is going to be pretty effective.  woooo hoooo.  I hope, LOL

Also, it's probably wrong to giggle while your child is in the corner, but that tiny no was funny. 

Me and food

Food is my "other man" and he is really good to me.  So good.  He knows how to make me feel right.  How to lift my spirits.  How to turn my frown upside down.  Food is always available, never makes me cry.  He's there when I'm stressed and on the verge of snapping.  Always there. 

Food is my "abusive lover" always there to punch me in the gut with extra fat.  Always around to make my thighs spread.  And I keep coming back.  Like Rihanna says "that's alright because I love the way it hurts".

I love it a lot.  The most. 

Oh food.  We've got to do things differently you and I.  I need to build a different relationship with you without obsessing over you. 

Food... I think you and I need counseling.

Even though I know you do me so bad.. I want you right now.  Right.  Now.

New Site!!! I'm losing weight! Again!

I started a new blog to track my new weight loss goals. 

I'm being realistic.  I'm talking about ME here, so there are going to be ups and downs and bouts of extremely laziness.  Hopefully having the second job will help. 

So come on over!  Cheer me on!  Offer a recipe, knock the pizza out of my hand!  Something.

Catch me over at

Starting Over Again

My name is Bek and I blog regularly at  I've had a battle with my weight since I was 16.  My body was fabulous until I got Depo.  And then my metabolism shifted to neutral and I gained, and gained, and gained. 

I lost it.  And gained it.  And lost it.  And gained it. 

I had a baby 18 months ago, and came home from the hospital a whopping 7 pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight.  By the time I went back to work, I was 20 pounds under my pre-pregnancy weight.   And I was able to maintain that thanks to the best cardio on earth, breast feeding. 

When I stopped breast feeding after a year, I was still able to keep it off.  But then I went back on birth control.  Six weeks later, I'm up 15 pounds.  I haven't started eating entire pizzas, or whole tubs of ice cream, or eating sticks of butter.  This is thanks to hormones yet again.

So I'm back at it.  I'll follow my triumps and losses, my extreme productivity and the lack there of. 

My goal is to lose a total of 60 pounds I hope you accompany me on this journey.

What's In A Name - Kim and Kanye Name Their Baby

Kim and Kanye's baby is here.  The good news is that the baby and mommy are seemingly healthy (I mean I really don't KNOW cause I don't KNOW them, but whatever) and Kim can stop shoving her preganancy swollen feet into shoes no comfort loving person should wear.

TMZ and a bunch of other people are reporting that Kim and Kanye named their baby North West.  No middle name.  Just North West.    People are falling out!  How could they do such a thing?!?!  That baby is never going to have a "Normal" life.

Few Things:

  1. This is America!  You can name your baby whatever you want.  Well, except for curse words.  Or Adolf Hitler 
  2. What they named their kid has absolutely no bearing on your life.  None.  Zero.  Zilch.  The electric company is not going to take "they named that baby North West" as a valid reason for not disconnecting your electric for non payment.  
  3. North's peer group does not have "normal" names.  North will not being going to the public school down the road.  Likely, she will not be attending school with Alyssas and Emilys and Olivias.  Her peer group is Apple, Blue, Everly, Rainbow and Rekker.  North doesn't seem as weird now does it?
  4. (really 3b) It's kind of funny that DaQuanitia and Lovelleon's parents think North is a weird name.  
  5. There's no way that the child of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian was going to have a "normal" life.  And, who decided what normal is in the first place?    
That being said, here are my picks for the name of their next baby:

  • Housis Facing West
  • Sunsets Inda West
  • Garmin  Zesgo West
  • Whatever We'reRichAndYou'reNot West

I've got a lot of things on my mind and I needed to write here.  Here.  Right here at my happy blog home.  Not about random things like how to find a Locksmith and what's important when evaluating Internet service providers.  I needed to write about what is in my head and my heart - but I'm only giving me 30 minutes to do it. 

Stuck In A Rut

The a/c in my car is acting the fool.  It has been for years, and for years I've had it looked at and no one can find a leak.  But... after time the freon is all gone and I'm back to non-working air.  I got it serviced 3 weeks ago, and it is struggling already.   I'd really like to get a new car.  Maybe a nice RAV-4 or CRV.  Something that won't depreciate super fast and make me sad.  Something with better gas mileage.  Something with working a/c.  But because I am the most upside down on a car that anyone has ever been, I can't.  I'm stuck.  Being stuck sucks. I let it get to me yesterday.  Today is better.  Just have to keep moving

Birth Control Control

For obvious reasons, I wasn't on birth control from 2008 - 2011.  Before that, I was on the pill and didn't have any problems.  After Ladybug was born, I went on the minipill because I was breast feeding.  I spotted a lot and had random cycles but was told that was a normal side effect.  I stopped taking it a couple times but picked it up again until I ran out.

A couple of months ago I went to the doc and got a real rx for the real bc pill.  The doc only gave me a three months supply and I was annoyed.  A-Noyed.

Well it turns out her medical degree is worth something because I got a whole slew of side effects.  Number one - WEIGHT GAIN!!!! And lethargy and a whole lotta other crap.  I stopped taking them.  I need to go back to the doctor.

Where do I go from here?  I don't know.  I'm anti depo, it's what made me fat in the first place.  I'm not a fan of how IUIs work.  But extra babies are not in the plan, unless someone wants to prepay for 5 years of child care.  If you're willing to do that, I'm down.

This was supposed to be way longer, but I have to go write about finding a dentist.

Words for Profit

This is going to be short.  Because I'm short on time.

Ladybug's new school put a dramatic planet sized monkey wrench in an already tight budget.  I would pontificate on what that means for my life, but instead I give you this.

I've been talking about parlaying my love of words into a money making endeavor forever.  Well, that time has come.  I'm now doing some freelance work, mostly SEO posts, that will hopefully provide enough room to take a deep breath occasionally.

I'm trying to balance everything, home, work, work 2.0, sleep.  And that's a struggle too.

But, doing this means that I'll be able to breathe sooner.  And breathing is good. Also sleep, sleeping would be nice as well.

About Me

I'm a 30-something wife, mom and pet parent. I've been blogging since 2004, at first solely on a blog for my friends and family. I love to write about everything. I can't say that A Bacon Flavored Life is about any one thing. If it occurs to me, it'll get posted. I write about life, love, infertility and a lot of "random".
