Screaming to get out!

In my case it is the opposite! Somewhere inside me there is a FAT woman screaming to get out. But I can usually shut her up with a good run. But sometimes she makes me do stupid stuff like:
Buy this stuff at the grocery store! I buy sweets and say things like "I will just eat a little handful to stop the craving" or "trail mix is healthy" YEAH if you don't sit and pick the M&Ms out and eat just the M&Ms. I don't know if it is the cold weather but I am eating like a squirrel preparing for hibernation. EVERY time I walk in the kitchen I find my hand in one of these bags. I even ate some of the trail mix (aka M&Ms) and chocolate chips when I took this picture.

Does anyone else have this problem??? In the past 5 years I have quit smoking with zero effort, gave up cokes without thinking about and cut back on drinking without a second though so why can I not quit eating sweets? Let me give you a run thru an average day for me:

Breakfast: fiber one pop tart or bar
7:30 arrive at school
See my kids acting like hoodlums; eat a piece of a chocolate
8:00-9:00 Teach Math
9:05 go get a mini chocolate bar because my kids didn't know Math
9:05-9:55 Teach Math again
9:56 eat more chocolate because those kids forgot everything I taught yesterday
10:00-11:45 Teach Reading and Writing while eating chocolate because they forgot too
12:00-12:15 Healthy Lunch followed by more chocolate
12:15-12:45 Recess Detention with previously mentioned hoodlums
12:45-1:40 Planning; while eating more chocolate
1:40-2:40 Teach
One last piece of chocolate before I go home

HOME! to eat a healthy supper but have no fear I usually split some gummies with Parker and then eat chocolate as a reward for doing my run.

See the fat woman screaming to get out??? She is like FEED ME! FEED ME! I need a support group for real. I mean who stops in the middle of a 14 mile run to order cupcakes???


  1. You have to stay out of those aisles! They are too tempting!! I had to ban myself from buying chips and queso...because I will it it for EVERY meal!

    Can you try replacing the chocolate with a healthier dessert? Fruit + Cool whip is DELICIOUS!

    Also, have you tried the dessert gum they sell? The mint chocolate chip one fixes my chocolate cravings!

  2. we could start a support group for each other!

  3. I hear ya. I used to be able to eat whatever I want if I exercised and now...well I hit 30, had to kids and am now going on 35 in a month and the weight just stays on me. Even with running bc running just makes me hungrier. And I love bad food and sweets. So I eat way too much of it. Ugh.

  4. We sound a lot alike! We have similar eating patterns! LOL

  5. I hope you're kidding about only having a 15 minute lunch!
