Call me narcissist if you must but this blog is all about ME. I have another blog about my kids, whom I love and adore writing about. But I was Nicole a long time before I was mom and I don't intend to give up being Nicole overnight.

You can read all about my kids at Naptime Optional.
Or you can follow along on our Arizona adventure on my 365 project blog.

Goodbye food, I loved you once

I have decided that I'm giving up food. Like completely. And forever. Do you realize how much easier life would be without food?

First, I hate Hate HATE grocery shopping. I must admit some of that may stem from the fact that I usually have 3 children with me while doing it. Those of you who have been grocery shopping with 3 small kids will understand. That in and of itself could be an entire post. But that's not the purpose of THIS post. So let's just leave it at "I hate grocery shopping." I hate loading it all into the car. I hate unloading it from the car. I hate finding places to put all the food once I get home.

Second, I'm not much into cooking. I know some people have a real love for it. I'm not one of them. I cook out of necessity. And let's face it, what I do can hardly be classified as cooking.

Third, I hate doing the dishes and cleaning up the kitchen after cooking.

Fourth, I hate gaining weight.

So, this is my brilliant plan. If I give up food I no longer have to grocery shop, no longer have to cook, no longer have to do dishes, and I lose all those stubborn pounds.

Plus, as an added bonus, I'll save oodles and oodles of money, and since I won't be grocery shopping or cooking or cleaning I'll also have a lot of extra time to spend that money! It's perfect.

Too bad I really like eating.....

Keep me posted on your new "no food" life. I'd like to see how you accomplish it.

I could never give up food. I think I'm addicted to it. I start going into relapse after a few hours.

Well, Nicole, there's this guy in India.

And I read somewhere about a group of Monks that have Weaned themselves off of food, but I can't find that reference for the life of me—but I know I read it.

I knew it had a name, and I knew I had read about it somewhere before.
This isn't where I read about it, but it is what I read about.

Only 1 flaw in your perfect plan, darn!

When you really figure out the no food thing, I want the secret.
