Oh Snap!

I had some tea last night with real sugar! A few months ago this would have been the end of my world. I admit I had a bit of anxiety from it. I did NOT know that it had real sugar in it. I just thought the new stevia I bought was the bomb. Then after 2 glasses my mom told me there was already SUGAR in it!! So now I know that i've been lying to myself for the past couple of years. Things DO taste better with real sugar it's not my imaginiation LOL!

My day started off like this:

Mmmm...look how big these are!

A guy I use to work with called me up last night. "April I have 8 lbs of asparagus that I picked. I don't know anyone else who would want it". YIPPEE!!!! He also gave me a bottle of honey from his bee hive SCORE!

I also must mention that I am in awe of you that are able to only add 1 tbsp of peanut or any other nut butter to your oats or an apple. I really CANNOT keep a jar in the house or I would eat the whole thing. I can have the 100 cal pks of almonds and be safe though. I have 1 pack a day and don't go back for more. If you can count out 15 almonds from the jar and only eat those you are the woman! Not me, if I kept a jar 15 would turn into 30. So although I can pass up pizza, cake and other crap I do have a weakness :)

Girlfriend you are getting lean ;) I have a real problem with processed peanut butter and salted/roasted nuts. I stick to raw almonds (which I count out like the freak I am) and now have resorted to weighing out grams of natty peanut butter...my tablespoons used to be overflowing, not to mention the big spoonful I put directly into my mouth while I was at it!

p.s. I threw out a cup of coffee last week my boss bought me (without his knowledge of course) because he got regular vanilla syrup in it...so sue me!
