Jeremy's home. Jeremy cooks breakfast. I eat bacon! The girls want cookies and cake. I eat cookies and cake. I haven't counted calories since Saturday and haven't gone walking/running since Thursday. I'm terrified that I'm going to go home tonight after work and find out that I have absolutely screwed myself over and have gained 10 pounds or something like that. Even 5 would be enough to totally wreck my day! I'm picking up Athena at 8:30 a.m. tomorrow morning and going for a run with her and then doing the same thing on Friday and then I have got to figure out something healthy I can cook this weekend that Jeremy and the girls will like, they are 6, 8, and 10 and so far they've eaten what I cooked (enchiladas for dinner, and omelettes with spinach and tomato and cheese) but they complain if I put anything in it they don't like, but then they always say they like it later. I have no idea how to take care of kids, I don't have any of my own, so I'm just winging it with these girls, the 8 year old is Jeremy's daughter, and the 6 and 10 year old are his nieces. Any suggestions for HEALTHY, low-cal things to cook that kids will actually eat? I was going to make meatloaf and potatoes, I know the 6 year old LOVES baked potatoes, so I could make baked potatoes for Jeremy and the kids and then have a sweet potato for myself, that wouldn't be difficult to do. If I mix half turkey and half hamburger (lean!) I bet the kids wouldn't notice, I don't know, they might. I haven't eaten red meat in a long time, though, and I don't want to get back on that kick again. If anybody has any suggestions, that would be AWESOME! Maybe I'll make pizzas, the kids can have pepperoni and I can have chicken, turkey sausage and spinach.
