You are what you eat

I just wanted to jot a quick note to let my readers know what I have subjected my body to today. Not that it is particularly interesting, but perhaps someone wants to know.

a bowl of Honey Nut Chex with 1% milk
dole pinapple-orange-banana juice

(pretty good, right? not Atkins, but it is healthy. just wait.)

a handful of peanut m&m's. (thanks to "ben" from MIM for kick-starting that craze.)
a pint of strawberries with sugar. (yes, a pint.)
a glass of chocolate milk.
a peanut butter and strawberry jam sandwich. (thanks, jes!)
the rest of the bag of Lay's SC&O potato chips.
a peanut butter granola bar that expired in November of '03.
a coconut-pecan bar that I made this afternoon.
a mango.
a squirt of Reddi-Whip right off my finger.

Now, I am going to get Daniel up from his nap. He is grilling burgers for me before he goes to work.

Yes, I said burgerSSSSSSSS.

amanda, your eating habits sound about as good as mine do today:

4 pieces of cold pizza for breakfast
1 corny dog for lunch
1 dipped cone from dairy queen
2 bags of caramel popcorn for dinner

and i wonder why i can't lose weight. blah.

yeah, but you PRACTICALLY had to eat that stuff to make up for all your exercise yesterday, right?

woohoo! NOW you are eating like a pregnant woman! :)

Baby must be going through a growth spurt. Or he needed a major sugar bolt.

Ok the M&Ms, Sugar, Lays, coconut-pecan bar and the Reddi-Whip were all for the baby - so of course you get burgerS! It is only fair.

And, I am getting over a BAD case of food poisoning and so nothing has sounded good today except chocolate, but a grilled burger suddenly sounds delicious!

This post is making me really hungry. This is not good because I'm trying to go on a fast this week. Dadgumit.

thanks for the support. i feel like we are having an online meeting of overeaters anonymous.

today, i have done better. my kids did say "whoa mrs johnson! your baby got fat while we were gone!"

i guess it is time for another picture.

I love your little Buddha belly...it is too cute!

Gotta love kids' honesty though not always tactful in its delivery.

amanda: fasting during pregnancy? is this allowed?

did your kids' comments make you cry? i think i might have cried.

Hey! Glad I could help encourage the Peanut M&M craze... lol

And what is this "Squirt of Reddi-whip right off your finger" bit?

Don't you know you are supposed to squirt it directly into your mouth?

Amanda, I thought that one of the few benefits of being pregnant was being able t eat whatever you wanted whenever you wanted it! (Well, that and the great hair. . .)

Enjoy it while you can--from what I've seen, you won't have a chance to eat much once the little one arrives, so stock up while you can!

Oh, you are SO pregnant! (and funny) Only one problem I see: forget the finger, that's for eating peanut butter. When you have canned whipped cream, it goes directly from the can to your mouth. Eliminate the middleman and save yourself lots of time!

mmmkay - jes, i am not fasting. that was amanda, not amanda sue!

reddi whip off the finger is much more decent than huffing from the can. don't want to get an unintentional high, thankyouverymuch!

my kids don't hurt my feelings. they are so honest and sweet! my kids have never made me cry, but they have made me laugh!

omigosh, amanda SUE. i am SO glad you pointed that out to me. i was really concerned for you. :)

Only one problem... the other amanda is pregnant, too!

I'll have to find out why she's fasting?!?

wrong amanda again. geez, people, it is a popular name!

Blogger Amanda said...

WHOA! I'm totally not pregnant people. Thankyouverymuch. :)

Wow...reminds me of the zillion Jennifers in school. Some of them were pregnant. And some fasted (or at least looked like it)
