Mommy for a Weekend = BAD EATING HABITS!
Monday, April 27, 2009
I did horrible this weekend! HORRIBLE! I kept my two nieces (Rilley, 4 and Kloe, 15 months) this weekend. I had an awesome time with them and love them to pieces. But my healthy eating comittment flew right out the window.
I don't feel like I was eating compulsively; I just didn't eat healthy. I cooked...and grabbed...whatever was quick and handy. And cheap. Did I mention cheap? It was a circus! I have new respect for mothers of small children.
One thing I did notice was that I didn't eat compulsively. No, it wasn't healthy, but I didn't sit there and eat a whole bag of cookies like I normally would have. I ate when I was hungry, but didn't overeat. I consider that a big step.
I was also active. I took the girls to the park and played with them. Not to mention that I was constantly up and doing something.
And I was right back to the water-drinking, oatmeal-eating, healthy eater this morning. I'm worried about Thursday's weigh in because I did so horrible this weekend. But it was a set-back; only a set-back. I'm still in the race.
