Confession: I just watched “Life” for the first time last weekend. HIlarity! Moving on…
With two weeks of fasting under my belt – and one week to go – I have come to a horrifying realization.
I, Nerd Girl, eat a lot of crap.
Now my meals? Well balanced – more plant than animal, appropriate serving sizes and all that jazz. I don’t fry anything I cook. I’m not big on soda or juice, water is my drink of choice. But oh, I can snack!
Usually I buy the same stash of snacks weekly at the grocery store – pretzels, Doritos, sandwich creme cookies, goldfish, Triscuits. I thought between Lovegirl’s snacks and lunches she was consuming all of the snacks. Um, no.
We have had the same bags of Doritos, goldfish and pretzels for two weeks. The cookie container? Nearly full. Smoochy doesn’t snack at all. That means either someone is breaking in in the middle of the night gorging themselves on snack food…or it’s me.
No wonder my thighs currently need their own ZIP code. I’m not sure how I wasn’t aware of this before, but I really wasn’t.
As I prepare to come off of this fast, I’ve got to somehow figure out a way to enjoy my favorite snacks – but definitely in moderation. Any tips? Tricks? Clues? I was thinking of eating clean Sunday – Friday and going “wild” on Saturdays. Anybody done this??
(I’m down 6 pounds which thrills me to no end. I’d like to drop another 7 and then tone and maintain)
