The other day I sent my husband to the store because I needed some pasta. I thought I had some when I started making dinner, but when it came to making the pasta I found I was out. He heroically stepped up and took a trip to the store. But once he came home, I realized why I never ask him to go to the store, why I always take it upon myself to do the grocery shopping…..he came back with Cinnamon Toast Crunch. To some, it may not seem like a big deal…hey it’s just a box of cereal, but to me its an addiction…I can’t NOT eat it….Cinnamon Toast Crunch is my kryptonite.
I work at home and therefore I can’t have food around the house that mocks me. What is food that mocks me you ask? Well it’s anything that I can easily grab that’s yummy. Chips, cookies, ice cream or anything else I can easily get my hands on, and eat all of. For example…if there is a sleeve of cookies I can’t eat just one..if there is a bag of chips I just continue to eat them. If it’s in the house I will eat it…yes these are my demons and I deal with them, and unfortunately have to leave my husband without cookies. It’s ok, we both don’t need cookies anyway right? RIGHT!
So what do I do? I don’t bring it in our home. The only sweets here are 100 calorie packs. 100 calorie packs of cheetos, hostess chocolate cakes, and chocolate bars. Anything that comes in small bags. Although I can’t stop eating a big bag of chips, I am able to stop at 1 100 calorie pack bag. It works, and my stomach thanks me for it…my husband might disagree with his mouth and his stomach…but his head knows I am right.
BUT where are we this week? With Cinnamon Toast Crunch and me unable to control myself. I am writing this post as I eat a bowl at 9:00 at night. I love him and hate him at the same time….who wins? LOVE! It’s just so yummy!
