It believe it was only the day after Christmas and a lot of the stores were already stocking their shelves with Valentine's Day goodies.
They don't waste any time, do they?
Part of my New Year's resolution was to cut out the sugar. I have been overindulging a lot the last few months.
It all started with my 40th bday celebration in October, then we had the girls birthdays in November, followed by Thanksgiving, then Christmas. There was no shortage of holiday sweets around here and once I started, I could not stop.
Cookies, Candies, Cakes, you name it, I ate it.
And let me say, once your body gets used the sugar fix, it is hard to break it.
January 1st I started a clean slate and went cold turkey......and while I was at it, I decided to give up my wine as well. I found myself pouring a glass after work while I cooked dinner a little too often and those calories add up quickly, so no more wine either.
The first week was rough and I was a complete bear, but now I seem to be cruising along and to be honest, I don't miss it.
(Okay, the wine I do and will probably start to allow myself a glass or two over the weekend here pretty soon. I just wanted to shave off a few of the holiday pounds that snuck up on me.)
It is a good thing the sweets don't bother me because they are still found here in the house. My husband LOVES these gummy hearts and there has been a big bowl of them staring at me all week. I am happy to report, that I have walked past that bowl countless times and have not put a single piece in my mouth.
But it sure looks like Pat will have help getting to the bottom of the bowl. It seems we have another sweet eater on our hands :)
That would be Reags, the child that LOVES food as much as her Momma!
