One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident

FOOD JOURNALS

Home with Kids

1 Comments 124 views

There are 2 possible eating scenarios for me when I’m home alone with kids all day.

  1. I’m stressed, overwhelmed and a little bored (in an adult sort of way) so I turn to food for comfort and familiarity.
  2. 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!

    Neither of these possibilities included pigging out, so I’d say you’re doing pretty well!
