July 25 - Hostess will be the death of me
Thursday, July 25, 2013
OMG they're back....and for some reason I'm eating them with a passion. When they were just an everyday item I maybe ate one every few weeks at most. Now that they've been gone awhile and are back....HOLY CRAP between me and the kids we can't seem to keep enough in the house. Is anyone else having this problem?? Am I alone in this obsession??
I'm hoping and praying that I very soon get sick of even seeing them in my house, and now that I'm back here and tracking my food, the guilt that comes before, during and after eating them should make me stop or at least pause but seems to hold only faint sway as my hand shoves another bite into my mouth. That yummy, oh so processed sugary goodness goes down just a mite to easily these past few days. And it NEEDS TO STOP!!!
There are unfortunately currently 3 boxes sitting in the "parental hiding spot" and hubby and I have been doling them out sparingly to the kids while shoving them in our faces all too often. And I also started TTOM today as well which isn't helping matters any. I've eaten 3 myself today (Twinkies, cupcake, ho-ho). UUUGH.
I have taken at least one step in the right direction. I re-activated my Bodymedia account which went inactive when my last credit card expired. So hopefully wearing that at work and such will remind me to be more careful with what goes in my mouth. And I'm hoping that we will rid ourselves of these evil boxes of sugar by this weekend...lol
My garden is producing tons of leaf lettuce, and the cucumbers are starting to grow nice and big, The blackberries are a nice darkening red and I even have a few carrots that are almost ready to harvest. Along with cauliflower and cabbage starting to form their heads. Good healthy foods to replace the sugar bomb that is infesting our house. We even got a bonus sunflower coming up by the BBQ, maybe we can try our hand at roasting our own seeds soon.
I will survive. It's a slow climb out of this unhealthy hole I've dug for myself recently. But I'm sure I'll get there one step at a time....just have to keep focusing.
thank you my friends for sticking beside me and cheering me on.
