Have you ever heard not to grocery shop while you're hungry????
It is an age-old rule, created to prevent excessive spending on a whole bunch of stuff that will just make you fat anyway.
Yesterday, I broke that age-old rule. It is simply not possible to avoid shopping while hungry if you're hungry every moment of the day (and night.) I'm not exaggerating. I think about food all day long. I plan my snack while cleaning up breakfast, plan my lunch while cleaning up my snack . . . I have a recurring cheesecake dream at night . . . you get the point.
So, in my "constantly famished" state, I went to the grocery store. I usually plan my menu before I go but I didn't want the trip to interfere with lunch time so I hurried out the door.
After spending a whopping $245 on a family of 3.25, I SHAMEFULLY came home with several items that have never graced my shelves (until now.)
John's reply: "Organic, mother-of-the-year bought BEEFARONI?"
Yes, John, yes I did and I'm so ashamed.
2. Tater tots
There is just no plausible excuse for these.
3. White hamburger buns to hold the sloppy joes I intend to make this week.
4. Hard taco shells
Again, have mercy.
A delicious replacement for the 100% whole wheat (shoe leather) shells of yore.
5. Ice cream sandwiches
Yum, and much tastier than the 100% fruit pops I used to enjoy.
As I was putting away this festival of fat, calories, and refined sugar I opened up my mail. The FitMama pregnancy exercise video that I ordered a few weeks ago came in the mail.
How does this happen?
How does an organic vegetable eating, whole grain lovin', low fat, Kashi cereal for breakfast, high fiber, Weight Watcher, exerciser turn into a beefaroni eating, tater tot munchin', cheesecake dreamin' fatty????
Wish I had more time to ponder this but I gotta go. I have some serious eating to do.
Followed up, of course, by doing the
FatMama FitMama exercise video.
