Sophia with bedhead and my daily protein shake
I probably don't have to tell any of you that my goal to stay off sugar for all of 2010 was not exactly met. I did really, really good until Easter and then I had a bit of a setback. But I recovered! I did pretty well over the summer, although I wasn't quite as strict and allowed myself to eat birthday cake here and there. But the stresses of this fall have just completely done me in. And I gained more pounds back in September and October than I have lost the entire year.
So, I'm back on my diet. I feel so much better when I'm eating right. I'm actually on a different diet now, one that's very strict, but easy to stick to because you have all your food all ready to go, and that is what I need. I guess you could say I'm on Satan's eating plan...choices are just too much for me right now!
Apparently, Sophia has noticed that I don't eat with everyone else anymore, and I have my own special food. She's always asking me about it, and I explain that it's my special diet food (perhaps I shouldn't use that word, but oh well) and that's why I'm eating it.
Well, the other day she caught me in the kitchen with a can of frosting in my hand and a knife in the other. I was actually making some after school snacks for the girls and about to spread said frosting onto some graham crackers, but Sophia FREAKED out.
"Mommy! That's not your diet! You can't eat that because it's not healfy for you! Don't eat it!!!!"
She would not calm down until I finished making those graham cracker sandwiches, and watched me like a hawk until the frosting was safely put away.
Yeah, so no cheating while that child is around! Any of you dieters out there just let me know, and I will happily let you borrow her for a while. I'm sure she'll be especially effective during the holidays!
