No Stress Eating Today

Friday, March 15, 2013

I take care of my two great grandsons on Fridays while their mother goes to school. Some days I feel stressed and end up looking for food!! Today I was able to get through the day without a problem. They are ages 2 and 5 and usually we end up baking something since they like to help. Today we made snickerdoodle cookies and I sent most of them home with them. There are a few left for my husband but they are not overly tempting for me. I got in a 10 minutes walk this morning before they got here and used my treadmill after they went home. I prefer walking outdoors but the road is covered with packed snow and patches of ice and I can't get up enough speed with the road conditions the way they are.

    I love snickerdoodles! Grandchildren are great fun, but your day is tiring I know! Thanks for stopping by my daffodil blog...I hope that your daffodils are beautiful this year and that your snow melts very soon!

    It's nice to have something that the grands like to make without being a temptation for you. Sounds like Win Win all the way around.

    My children are about the same age, and they drive me around the bend sometimes, and they are super fun.

    Way to go! I just can't bake things without giving in to the temptation, so have admiration for those of you who can do that!

    You baked some wonderful memories with your great-grandsons, Gail! Snickerdoodles! I bake those for my husband's office now and then. In fact, just last week I did. They fill the house with the scent of cinnamon, butter, and baked sugar...culinary perfume! Glad you all had a cozy time of it :) emoticon
