I have a love-hate relationship with food!! If I buy the healthy stuff and actually take time to cook it, everyone raves about the “gourmet meal” and I feel as though I am doing something good for my family.
It just gets so hectic some days, that I just don’t have the energy to cook! With soccer practice and basketball and baseball... tutoring after school... it is so easy to order in or go through the drive-through!
I feel so guilty...thinking of all the fat and calories I’ve just consumed and then exercise like crazy for days afterward!
My biggest downfall is potato chips ( especially Utz Brand and the curly ones)...if they are in the house, they will find a way to my mouth...LOL
Answer~ Don’t buy the “junk”
Question~Love it or Hate it? What’s your weakness??

    • LOL, Vicki!!

      I am fine if I don’t buy the junk and more then ever it is just out of pure laziness that I will give in to the little ones and go through the drive-thru...
      They love when I cook! I just need the motivation!  I use to watch the Food Network Channel all the time and learned a lot!

      Maybe I just need a little inspiration and back away from the potato chip bag...LOL

    • haha! I can’t believe I just saw this! Not 5 minutes ago I was helping myself to another piece of hard candy and thinking “I’m such a junk food junkie!“!!! haha!

      I eat very healthy meals, and mostly healthy snacks. BUT, and that’s a BIG BUT, I like me some junk food!!!

    • I love chocolate. A lot. So much that I give it up every year for Lent because that is the hardest temptation. Before I give it up for 40 days this year, I’m getting in as much as I can. ...

    • Jeanie- I really don't like Doritos, but when my daughter introduced me to these lovelies she created a monster !  Careful though, make sure you have plenty to drink when you get started!

    • My weakness is gummies, coke and bear ones.  I am also a chocoholic.  It’s all good.  Have to over endulge, life is too short not to.  LOL  At least that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

      Karyn~Peanuts are not bad for you in moderation for that matter, nothing is really bad for you in moderation.  The key word being, MODERATION! LOL

    • Chocolate is my weakness, but I make sure it is in moderation. (Never any extras around here! LOL I make sure it is portioned out so I only get one serving of whatever.)
      I have used positive self talk to overcome most of my foodie addictions. Potatoes = 1/4 sugar in your body when you digest them... so that is an easy visual. Fried foods now repulse me as I envision thunder thighs with lots of cellulite. Train your brain, and you can overcome most anything. I make sure to have a mental talk with myself when I go to the store. If I don’t break down then, I am good. I am a sucker for sales though, and Sam’s had Caremlita bars marked down to 2.00 per box. I limit us to one pan per week - which gives me one bar. :) I don’t WANT to train my brain to give up chocolate. LOL

    • happymomma~ thanks for the visual on the thunder thighs!! Although I have never had them, I will be thinking of them with every bite!!

      Moderation is the key to over indulgence!!
