I'm normally very careful about what I eat. Cookies and ice cream are my weaknesses, but are generally infrequently consumed treats. I eat a lot of fruit and vegetables and try to keep my fat intake down.
This is all well and good until I find myself stressed out. Then it all goes to hell. In the past few days, I've consumed vast quantities of chocolate, ice cream, and cookies. My veggie intake has been at an all-time low. Between the busy weekends, the guests, work, the hot water heater, and cancer, I just haven't had the energy to create healthy, nutritious meals for myself. I'm hoping the upcoming Weekend of Nothingness will help get me back on track. It's a vicious circle, really. I'm too stressed/tired to eat well, but not eating well makes me more stressed and tired. Must get off this hamster wheel. The babies and I both deserve better nutrition!
The crappy weather doesn't help my motivation about anything. And can anyone tell me why in early May the grocery store doesn't seem to have much in the way of reasonably priced fruit outside of apples, oranges, pears, and bananas? Am I high or is there usually more interesting stuff to choose from by this time of year?
It might help if I took the bowl of mini M&Ms off my desk, too . . . just a thought.
