There are 2 possible eating scenarios for me when I’m home alone with kids all day.
- I’m stressed, overwhelmed and a little bored (in an adult sort of way) so I turn to food for comfort and familiarity.
- I keep the kids and myself busy with shopping, walking, cooking etc. We have a great day and I turn to food when I’m hungry not when I’m bored.
Today I flirted with both. In the morning, I got the kids up and dressed. We hit BJ’s, come home had lunch and got a ton accomplished. Then after nap I got super tired (probably because I was working while they were napping), and I started to pick a little here a little there. So I snapped my self out of it, made the AWESOME “They don’t know what’s in there” Pizza Sauce-which was a hit- and got the kids out for a walk.
Tomorrow I will probably flirting with both again. I had better get to bed. As usual, I’m staying up too late even though I know I will pay for it tomorrow.
Real fast… If you didn’t notice I made some big additions to the site like the top nav bar and the google search. I also edited the calculators. A few people brought it to my attention that the calories, fat and fiber where out of order.
Ok, it’s bed time. ‘night!
