This is on average the amount of candy wrappers that I've been finding daily in the dryer over the past few days. This was what was in there today. I finally decided to document it. There's been alot of sneaky business going on around here. And I found more stashed upstairs under a book (the culprit(s) will remain nameless)...ahem!
My kids got a gross amount of candy this year for Valentines day...Normally, I'd be feeling the "candy love" but I'm seriously trying to lose weight and being the food addict that I am, I have zero self control when it comes to chocolate (especially dark) and things like nerds and fun dip!
I swear, this weight will never come off as long as my kids are living at home. All they do is eat all day long! I can't seem to get away from thoughts of food. Whether it's me trying to think ahead of what to pull out of the freezer to thaw, or requests for morning snacks, afternoon snacks, lunch, dinner, desserts (my mom has everyone programed to eat dessert after lunch and dinner). Is that normal? Plus, it doesn't help matters much that I am an emotional eater...
Anyway, what I'm saying is that I'm doomed at the rate I'm going. Looking at pictures of myself recently of what I looked like 10 years ago was shocking and left me feeling glum.
It didn't help that I just renewed my drivers license today and I looked so haggered compared to 5 or so years ago.
Why do I always get this way in February?! I need some serious time in the garden! That always heals my soul...
**Am I the only one with the February blues?
**Are you an emotional eater?
**Do you eat dessert for every meal?
