This has been my Post-Halloween Diet this year:
8:00- Green smoothie (almond milk, banana, spinach, pineapple, protein powder, chia seeds, flax seeds)
**Feeling great about myself and my good choices. I don’t even make eye contact with the candy bowl. The candy bowl is dead to me.
12:00- hard boiled egg, apple slices with sunflower seed butter, cheese and multigrain crackers
**I may have casually glanced at the candy bowl. It didn’t mean anything, I just happened to gaze over there. It’s fine. I don’t NEED candy.
2:30- hummus and pita chips
**So I walked over to the candy bowl. What? It’s a free country, I can go wherever I want. So what if I made hand contact with the candy. I just wanted to SEE what the kids got. Wow, those mini candies really are VERY mini. Like barely a bite. It’s fine, I don’t NEED the candy but IF I did, the mini ones wouldn’t be that bad.
3:00- Mini Twix and mini Kit Kat
**I mean, if I’m going to eat a piece of candy I have to do it before the kids get home. I can’t let them see me stealing their candy! They’re very unforgiving when it comes to stealing their candy. Not that I would know about that or anything. Plus, they don’t really need all this candy. It’s not good for their little bodies. I’m basically sacrificing my body for their health. Sheesh, the things we do for our kids.
4:00- Mini Snickers
**What? So I’m hiding in the bathroom shoving this chocolate deliciousness in my mouth. Whatever. The kids were getting candy but I didn’t want to be a bad example!
5:30- Mini Reeses cup
**I’m STARVING and dinner isn’t ready! I’ve barely eaten anything ALL day!
6:30- Salmon with a honey soy sauce, brown rice, and roasted asparagus
**That was such a healthy dinner I deserve a little sweet treat later. You know, just a little something.
7:15- Mini Milky Way and little box of Junior Mints
**I mean the kids were having candy for dessert soooo….
***And Junior Mints aren’t really candy, they’re just mints.
9:00- Butterfinger, Baby Ruth, Kit Kat, Hershey bar, Sour Patch kids, Twix, Reeses (all mini, of course)
(just a few of my wrappers)
**BECAUSE THE KIDS ARE FINALLY IN BED AND I’M A GROWN-UP SO I CAN DO WHATEVER I WANT!!!!!!
***And they’re all “mini” so I feel good about it.
Anyone else have a similar post Halloween diet these days?
