Failing to plan is planning to fail

Whew..what a couple of weeks. It's going to settle down, right? It has to! On the car accident front, we got a new car!!!!!! I am in *love* with it. We just happened in to the right dealership at the right time and got a really good deal on a car I never thought we could afford. They ended up selling it to us at a loss just to move it. It's awesome :) I'm SO glad that car shopping and car sharing are both over!

This week also marks the end of my little one's swimming lessons. They've done really well, but it has sure been hectic! I have to pick them up from school run home, feed them, get them in their suits and back across town at the pool in about 1.5 hours. It's been challenging and my eating has taken a beating. I failed to plan the meals this week which pretty much meant that I planned to fail. We have eaten out WAY too much. WAY too much, and we're not talking healthy eating out either. It makes me feel really guilty that my kids have eaten a lot of crap lately. Mommy guilt is a terrible thing! I'm vowing that we're eating IN every day next week and we're eating healthy, too.

As for me, I've tried to make the best choices possible, but, in reality, when you're eating Wendy's, pizza, etc. every night, it adds up. The scale is up, I feel icky. The other thing that I've noticed is that I eat more at night when I eat junk like that for dinner. Eating junk makes me crave more junk, which is no good. The good news is, I can fix this. I know how and knowing is half the battle! :)


  1. Crap begets crap! The junkier I eat, the more junk I crave!! We were eating WAY too much fast food and almost daily. It was gross and we were all feeling it. This week was the first week in I don't know how long that we didn't have fast food at all, I loved it! Hope you have a better week next week :)


  2. You are right knowing is half the battle. It's tough when you have to eat out a lot. Plus, I tend to gravitate toward junk whether there is a healthy option or not. Who wants a salad when you can smell a cheeseburger and fries? Not me.

    Have a great weekend.

  3. Yes! You CAN fix this! Atta girl! Deb

  4. Hang in there! Life you can make some plans. Keep on pushing through!!
