A Treaty Treat!


Any one want a treat? This is a super common phrase in my house ... .FOR ME! Of course not for the children, I monitor the kids like mad and watch them like a hawk. I can eat chocolate cake and chippy chips, but the little ones can have a cut up apple and string cheese. :) I wish I could deceive myself and write that this little 'Treaty Treat' ritual occurs once a day, but to be completely honest with you it is a tad more regular than that. Should I be embarrassed to be admitting this little vice? I'm not sure how I even developed this nasty little habit. . .but. . . I eat when I'm bored. . .I eat when I'm sad. . I eat if it's Sunday (a lot . . after all it's Sunday). . .I eat when I'm frustrated. . .heck I even eat when I'm happy, I eat if I have a great run. . .I pick up a treat when I go shopping, Ah . . .I go to work tonight. . .better get me a treat! Sisters took me out for my Birthday. . guess who was the only member of the treaty treat and clean plate club. . .ME! It was way too much fun and I LOVE being 30, but I ate everything. . .I wish I could say that I eat when I'm hungry, but I honestly don't believe I allow my body to get hungry, because I LIKE TO EAT! Tell me your favorite restaurant and I can tell you my favorite treat. I'm a permanent member of the 'Treaty Treat' Club! I try to be good. . . I purchased whole wheat pancakes the other day. YUMMMY. There is only one little dilemma. . . I loaded it with peanut butter and syrup. All the sudden it's not so healthy. You are probably wondering why on earth I am divulging all my treaty treat secrets. . . I don't have anyone to tell me NO and hide all the treats (that's my job) and apparently I have no self control so I'm asking you, my friends, my family, and heck if you just happened to stumble onto my page, PLEASE HELP! Do you have any suggestions to monitor my treat intake. I am honestly afraid that I am going to wake up some day and be over 200lbs. Share your secrets . ..any amazing ideas? One thing is for sure. . .I could really use them. Look . . . .I just updated my blog. . .I think I need a treat! :)

Keep eating treats. It has worked well for me. Who doesn't love chubby? Look at Santa, everyone loves him.

Okay first of all I do have some suggestions for you my friend. Push away from the table!!! Save your treaty treat treats for a special day...SUNDAY....or only have one treaty treat a day. Buy less fattening treats....skinny cow or frozen yogurt. But be careful you are 30 now and I hear that at thirty it definately starts to catch up with you so I hear. So stop eatting treaty treat treats for a few days to DETOX your body so you stop craving it. And in fact take some vitamins maybe your body is lacking in something. SO be happy with your world, treats are great we all love our treats! But we surely don't love a 200lbs. Shauna. Love you Jessica

Treats are my weakness too!! The idea of "restricting" myself makes me crave them more..bummer. My theory is.. one day a week.. Sundays...but then there are always leftovers for Monday!! :) Shauna you look great.. I don't think you need to worry too much yet. As long as you keep running, you're set!

No ideas here . . . But if you come up with anything, let me know, cause I am in the same boat! After a run last night, I of course had to treat myself with a treaty treat of apple crisp and ice cream. Hey . . . I deserved it! And so do you! But seriously . . . . I have got to find some self control. I think thats the only thing there really is that will help. Unfortunately . . . easier said than done :)
