I've been doing my best to make smarter food choices this year. I do a great job until about 8:00 every night -- that's when the munchies set in.
That's also when the war starts. It goes something like this:
(H = my head; it demands healthy S = my stomach; it wants num nums)
S: I'm hungry
H: No, you're not. You're bored.
S: No, I'm hungry. What do we have to eat?
H: There's a banana...
S: I don't want a banana. Is there any ice cream left?
H: No. No ice cream. You'll put too much magic shell on it and probably whipped cream
S: We have whipped cream?
H: No! No ice cream. No whipped cream.
S: Well, no banana.
H: How about some popcorn?
S: Can I put butter and caramel sauce on it?
H: No! Just popcorn. But you can have a Diet Coke.
S: I don't want plain popcorn. Hey! How about pretzels?
H: Sure. As long as you measure out a proper serving...
S: Do we still have that melting chocolate for candies?
H: Yeah....but you're NOT putting chocolate on the pretzels.
H: Hey - I think we have oranges
S: No. They're a pain to peel
H: I'll peel it. Remember how sweet and juicy that was the other night? It was better than candy
S: hahahahaha. Nothing is better than candy.
H: So, whaddya say? Shall I get the orange?
S: No. I don't want a freaking orange. I want something YUMMY.
H: It is yummy. And it's good for you.
BOTH: Ahhh, f@&! it.
If your resolution was to eat healthier, how are you doing?
