After I dropped off David at daycare for his field trip today (he’s going to a gymnastics class) I promptly drove to Dunkin Donuts for my usual coffee. Today I got a bagel (I’ve been trying to lay off the morning bagel habit) and I was sad to discover it wasn’t what I ordered.
It’s certainly a message from above to STOP BUYING BAGELS.
I am in this constant state of war with carbs. They are my mortal enemy. But instead of going on some wacky low carb diet (which I would NEVER be good at since carbs are my life) I decided to just try to cut down on them. Have a yogurt instead of a bagel for breakfast. Skip the superfluous rolls and bread for lunch and dinner.
Sleeping with the enemy, that’s really what it is.
Last night, I made dinner for the BagMomma house. Parmesan-crusted chicken with two veggies (neither of them potatoes). S. says… “where’s the stuffing?” I say, “we are not having stuffing.”
S. looked at me with the look of perplexed fear. “why?”
“Because carbs are killing us.”
And you know what? After dinner I had a peach for a snack and when I woke up this morning my stomach was grumbling like it hadn’t had a speck of food in days.
I was HUNGRY. Which led me to the state I am in this morning.
Annoyed because my bagel was cinnamon-raisin and I wanted Sesame, gosh darn it.
Offending bagel was 86’ed in the trash. I drank a yogurt smoothie and had another peach.
…..Till we meet again CARB……
probably at lunch.
