C is NOT for cookie...and it's NOT good enough for me! (One cookie is never enough anyway...)
C is for I CAN'T stop eating today....
For some reason on Sunday's I want to eat everything in sight. It's really the only day of the week that I cook a decent large meal and we all sit down as a family together (with Husband included because he works every night). Obviously I do eat with the kids most nights, but the convo around the dinner table isn't as stimulating as it could be with a 4 year old and an 18 month old that has 20 words or so in his vocab. (Don't worry little guy, soon enough you'll be driving Mama krazy with your endless ramblings just like your big brother.) And as much as I hate to admit it, I way too often default to serving easy and crappy kid-friendly foods. During the week I don't really want to eat mac and cheese or chicken fingers (well I DO but for the sake of the size my rear-end I forgo and opt for some fish/chicken/salad/boring healthy stuff.) I often force offer these healthy choices to my kids too. BUT on Sundays I seem to eat like it's my last day on earth and I just might never have another soothing refreshing glass of Sauvignon Blanc again. Where does my will power and resolve go? To hell and fast. I am a firm believer in the 80/20 rule and that while it's important to eat well/clean/healthy throughout the week, on the weekend one can indulge. But my indulgence goes "off the reservation" and over a cliff! What's the point of being "good" and starving eating with moderation when it all goes out the window at the end of the week?
It's like a krazy switch goes off in my head, it's Sunday so MORE is BETTER! It sometimes takes days to undo the damage from Sunday. It's not like I'm eating mountains of Chinese food or pizza...it's just good, home-made food. BUT JUST SO MUCH. I am self sabotaging "Massive Weight Loss 2010". At this rate it WILL be 2012 before I knock off these last 10 el-beees. Kid #2 is 18 months old and the "I had a baby and that's why I'm still kinda heavy" schtick is getting old fast. I'm in a vicious cycle of going up and down on the scale throughout the week. WHY WHY WHY is losing the last 10 pounds SO HARD?!?!?! And why do I eat Cookie Monster stylez on Sunday?
