Hiding Snacks? Yikes!
Wednesday, January 30, 2013
Ok, I confess. I'm seriously considering hiding snacks from my family
. Not in a sneaky, I'm binge eating kind of way. But in a protective, I'm concerned about them kind of way
. "Yeah right", you say. But I'm serious!
Here's the deal; I have a very diligent sweet tooth. I don't overdo it, but I like to have a small taste of something sweet every single day
. Well, being the bargain hunting coupon clipper that I am, I prefer to buy my treats from someplace like Walmart, where they are cheaper rather than say...a convenience store when I'm out and about. Well, I am more than capable of having one small taste, and leaving the rest alone. However, DH and the kids like to devour the stuff. If it's in the house, they WILL eat it ALL. I just like for it to be available when I want it, not necessarily so I can eat it all up in a short period of time. What they don't get is that I'm pacing myself, counting calories, sticking to a fitness plan...and they aren't taking all those steps. I really think I'm gonna start having my treats at work or in my car when I'm alone. But then I'd feel like a true fatty
. And NO I will NOT give up my treats! What a conundrum
