My Dad has been eating fried foods in my face. And my favorites too! Hush puppies and shrimp! I love me some shrimp! Aah! But it is day 3 of my Daniel Fast, and I ran out of the potatoe dish that I cooked. I was going to make meatless chili for my second dish, but I didn't even realize that I bought a can of chili beans that have the meat added already. How in the world did I miss that?! That's what I get for going shopping at 1AM in the morning, and right before an icestorm. This icestorm sucks! I'm getting cabin fever like crazy for being stuck in the house going on 4 days straight. I haven't gotten any writing done. I was writing last night, and the part in the manuscript where I had to describe how the girl eats a chocolate cupcake. Seriously?! I had to stop, I couldn't go on! Anywho, I made sort of a Tex Mex dish for my second dish, and it came out really really good! This is my own recipe:
Tex Mex Burrito & Corn
1 can of Fire Roasted Tex Mex tomatoes
1 can of Black Beans
Half of yellow onion chopped fine
Sprinkle of black pepper
Sprinkle of sea salt
1 TB of minced garlic
1 can of Golden corn
Whole Wheat Tortilla
Half of can of water
You can add the corn in the pot with the tamotoes and beans, but I decided to keep it seperate, so it felt like I was eating more. I just sprinkled the corn with pepper and sea salt. I boiled on Medium High for about 7 minutes, then I simmered on low for about 20min or so. I was going to add lettuce in the burrito, but I got lazy. It was really good, tasted just like a meal I had in a Mexican resturaunt. I will definitely be cooking this again. I only wish I wasn't lazy, so I could fry the tortilla brown in a frying pan, so it would be toasty. I had leftovers that lasted me for a week! I ended up cutting up iceburg lettuce and had me a tasty salad!
Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?

I made it!
Holy crap, Batman! I survived Mental Health Awareness Month, and I have no idea how I kept pushing myself. I skipped lunch today to save the extra coins. Yes, you read that right. A co-worker had a snarky remark about it, but guess what? IDGAF! I have goals in my mind, and I'm keeping my eye on the prize. Summer 2018 is mine, and I can only hope that things are finally falling into place. Besides, it's not like I didn't eat anything. I just didn't order out. I saved my money. Call me cheap.
I don't know what the rest of the Summer holds for me, but I know I'm going places and making progress. It has been slow going, and I have been tried, tempted, and failed so many times. I don't know where …
