A huge part of me wants to blame this new addiction on X (well, and Pinterest) since he is a huge sweets fan, and I was never really this way until marrying him and him bringing it into our house… BUT… I know I only have myself (and lack of self control) to blame, plus- it being his birthday week and all, it’s not very nice of me to throw him under the sugar bus. I am going to try and get on a healthier schedule… how do you all keep yourselves accountable for eating right and exercising? I think Nike said it best: JUST DO IT. Amen, Nike. Amen.
healthy living sometimes it's random and that's okay
Hi. My name is Emily, and I’m a Crap-a-tarian.July 29, 2014
This post, I apologize, but it’s a little random today… (however, still really really important). (Like, really important.) (Randomness is always really important in my book.) (I promise I won’t keep talking in parentheses.) Consider this post a confession of sorts, yeah?
Alright. So what happens when… you don’t have any sugar in the house because you’re trying to eat less of it? Let me tell you what happens. One makes a peanut butter sandwich and dunks it into a bowl of syrup. Oh, yes. Yes I did. Sugar is a serious addiction, all. Whoa. And I’ve never had this addiction before – this only started in the last few years. What gives??!
You know what else happens when you’re trying to eat less sugar? You and your husband will spend literally 40 minutes talking about your favorite desserts. And then you will dream about donuts 3 nights in a row. I didn’t buy any hummus during the last grocery run simply because it was right next to the donuts, and I was seriously doubting my self control. (And really- who puts the hummus right next to the donuts?! C’MON, MAN!)
This past weekend, while at my parents house, my dad and I decided that I’m not a Vegetarian, but rather a Crap-a-tarian. In other words, I don’t eat as many veggies as I should and instead depend on all of the crap sides. (This would be true.) So there’s that.
PS- I’m SO so so so excited to share with you a special Vlog on Thursday featuring Betsy from Heavens to Betsy! Highlights include her Pinterest design pin that received more than 23,000 shares, how sometimes – as a blogger – she feels like a stalker, what she would say to future generations of women, and the song she most likes to “pop-star sing” along to (and much more). Be sure to check back Thursday morning!
