I Scream, You Scream

I'm an emotional eater. I guess the first thing to do is admit you have a problem. I have a problem eating.

My vice is baked goods, but anything sweet will do. Chocolate. Cupcakes. Cake! During a regular day, in a regular week, at a regular time in my life I love eating. When I'm emotional, I need to eat. It's like drugs. For that reason I try NOT to keep junk food in the house - because if it's here I will eat it. But I do have a little stash of chocolate for those times when I NEED TO HAVE IT.

For the past few weeks, I've been getting down with the baked goods. We have been sharing intimate moments together at night when Baby is asleep. I have been packing more in the shopping cart under the warm breakfast cereal and prepared salad mix. A few have come along in the diaper bag for "on the go indulgences". Earlier this week I finished a whole box of Passion Flakies in just over 24 hours. That's 6 Passion Flakies people. On the weekend I had a big bowl of iced cream with peanut butter chocolate cookies on the side. Did you hear that? I had ice cream with a side of cookies!!

Today I went on a Meetup with a couple of new moms in downtown Toronto. We went to an Ice Cream shop - a really cute one in Leslieville named Cream The Urban Dairy. It was adorable. And I had a great time with the other new moms. Afterwards took a walk down Queen Street East to visit Kids On The Hip (for the first time) and Baby On The Hip (one of my favs).

It was great to have a nice outting. But I have to be completely honest here. I RSVP'd for the Meetup for the Ice Cream! I was thinking about the Ice Cream all day! Ok I was thinking about the Ice Cream yesterday too!

Could it be possible that I like sweet things more than I like people?! Naah!! Maybe...

So I decided that I need to get myself together. I am going to quit Ice Cream and baked goods for two weeks.

Cold turkey.

Because it is clearly a problem.

Hopefully after this short detox I will be back to my old self. Enjoying people, their babies, as much as I enjoy the desert.

Found you on Bacon is my enemy. You have passed on the guilt lady! I have been hitting the ice cream every night for a month straight. I am a little more pregnant than I should be and really need to cut back so here goes...I am with you. Ouch! I might have to have one bowl now before I start!

Just found my cell phone. It has been missing for days. Battery was dead and I found the darn thing at the bottom of the diaper bag. Of course! Where else would it be, right? LOL!

I have to take my vehicle in for an oil change but I'll try to call you tomorrow. Hugs for you and Baby!! xo
