End of Ballet & Grocery Trip

Thursday, July 18, 2013

Just stopping in really quick before I go to bed. Today was my daughter's last day of Ballet ( emoticonGOD) not for it being over for her but for me getting a break!

We went to the grocery store and again, I am stumped on what to eat while not really having an appetite. The deli makes a tasty turkey meatloaf for $5 but it was regular price so it stayed there. I stocked up on green, red and black grapes since I freeze them for a tasty treat throughout the day emoticon

My son loves strawberries so I definitely got him 4lbs. I found a greek yogurt based artichoke dip for 100 calories! Got that with some wheat thins. As I was wandering aimlessly around the market, one of the clerks told me to take my kids to Pizza Hut and just get pizza. I told her no and they had it over the weekend. She said so what, treat them everyday. Of course, she was overweight, not judging her...just saying when you know better; you do better (sometimes)

I want my kids to see fastfood as a treat not only because financially I cannot afford to buy it all the time yet it is something to eat every now and then. I let them eat out 1-2x a week, sometimes none, because I really want to set an example.

Anyway...for dinner, I ended up eating a homemade salad and sandwich. It was quick and I am okay with that. The kids ate baked chicken, corn and grapes!

Have an emoticonnight and better day tomorrow, tomorrow! I have my conference this weekend and am so excited. I wish everyone the best and joy!

    it's amazing, but fast food to me has become a punishment. It doesn't taste real, I feel horrible after eating it, and it takes up all of my calories,lol. Unfortunately it's what I have to eat when I plan poorly and don't have time or haven't packed a lunch, #punishment, lol. I know how it feels to go grocery shopping with zero motivation of what to cook and zero idea of what would be appetizing to you. I say browse some food blogs or pinterest food pics.

    I personally would rather have a home cooked meal than fast food!

    My daughter treats my grandkid's to fast food maybe once a week (although they would like it more often)

    You are setting a good example for your children by your actions emoticon
