"Not me!" Monday





Another post about what we've NOT been doing...

The most disgusting of all things, that I most CERTAINLY did NOT do recently, was consume a WHOLE bag of pork cracklins - ONLY to discover with the very LAST one that it had MORE hair on it than my own arm!




I was SOOOOOOO GROSSED out! Nope, I wouldn't CONSUME the WHOLE bag without noticing such a thing. That's just NASTY.

After I found it, and truly DIDN'T eat the hairy cracklin, my husband didn't try to console me by telling me that at least I wouldn't have to floss. Nope. Not him, he would NEVER make fun of his wife while she's in full panic mode. (I still get nauseous when I think about that hairy little rascal) *ICK*

Oh, and I wasn't eating those cracklins because I didn't start ANOTHER carb diet thinking it'd be more FUN to eat all that meat, cheese, and nuts. Not me! I surely know better!

I also didn't give up said diet after only a week. Not Me! I've got more willpower than that!

O:-)

Oh Tanya, I just say ick with you. Makes my stomach turn, even though I have no clue what cranklins are. And who can even survive a carb-less diet for a week...not me.

Tonya,
May I just say that is N-A-S-T-Y.

I have been known to eat my fair share of .....I'm trying to think of what we call them in these parts...it's not pork cracklins. I think it's pork rhines.

Did you know they are nothing but pig skin? I did yet even after discovering that I have still eaten them. It is much easier to eat when they are BBQ flavor.

I think the sight of the hair would've made me release the entire bag back out...you know what I mean.

Stick with your meat and cheese. I could fill up on cheese...now let's see is it made out of anything n.a.s.t.y.?

Let's hope that there pig in that there bag was a hairless pig except for that one spot on his back. :-0)
Love ya,
Paula

i am going through a program called HiEnergy (hewc.com) No cal counting or fat counting OR points counting. Grocery store food, no prepackaged food. I do take protein supplements via shakes, bars, drinks ect... Exercise RELIGIOUSLY 3x a week in step n sculpt class. Basically its NO fried foods at all or carbs except for the good carbs in veggies and I am allowed 2 pcs of 40cal/slice natures own bread per day if I want. So I can make a quick sandwich. I have done ww before and it just gives me too much room to make bad choices!

Burlington is one of my favorite places in the world - I love it there. What a wonderful place to take Brent to see - I have never seen a bad season there - even "mud" season. We live far enough for it to be an event to go, but close enough to drive there with little planning.

Faith Hope Love Mama said...

Oh gross!! Makes me nauseous just thinking about it also.
I still need to do my post with words letter U. Your son gave me a hard letter and I need my brain on this one. Maybe this week. Hope yours is fabulous!! Thinking of you.

Daphine said...

Oh my! I agree with ya....naaaassstty! I seem to notice everything that is weird with my food too. That being said, I wouldn't have finished the whole bag without noticing something like this either! LOL!

ICKY! I would say, "I hate when that happens." But I can honestly say that has never happened to me. I hope it didn't scar you for life. :)
