Put Down The Cake

With an affinity for anything coated in chocolate, and a struggle to balance both my addiction/ambivalence to exercise, I started this blog to help inspire myself (and hopefully others) to put down the food and get moving. If we lose a few pounds along the way, and create some awesome sweat stains in the process, then the rest is, as they say... cake!

I'm on a high veggie diet. I have increased my vegetable intake by about 40%. I feel better, I am pleased when I step on the scale, and my clothes fit. There is one drawback to this new healthy eating of mine. Gas.

We all know the silly names for it. Air biscuits, trouser cough, underthunder.. I mean, it's all juvenile. This is a sincere problem. Stop laughing. Go ahead, I'll wait. Okay. My poor husband has had to deal with the aftershocks of my colorful diet of delightful veggies. Although, sometimes I do enjoy just waiting for him to roll over and for the covers to inadvertantly fan a surprising aroma in his direction. He gags, and i laugh in a devious way that no one else has heard (except maybe my sister). Otherwise, I think he's ready to take up permanent residence on the couch.

With that said, I'm thinking of making another purchase...

So, how do you health nuts deal with the side affects of roughage? Am I the only one afflicted by this hilarious problem?
