The Case of the Missing Gingerbread Roof


  

     "Mom, what happened to our gingerbread house?" my four and three year old asked in almost perfect unison.

They interrogated each over who took a bite out of the roof.  "Was it dad?" they asked.

"Nope",  I answered and allowed them to continue accusing one another.

Finally the light bulb went on.  "You???" they asked incredulously.

I actually thought about denying it.  I opened my mouth but no words came out.  I just nodded my head.

"Moooom!"  My son said.

     After a bedtime routine that extended for 3 hours last night, I wanted a reward.  Anything to make me feel better about being taken advantage of.  I was suckered into scaring away monsters, putting band aids on fake cuts, allowing people to sit on the toilet far too long, delivering water to a parched child and reading four books.  I looked around the kitchen to find something sweet to eat.  I checked the freezer, no ice cream.  I checked the cabinet where I hid the halloween candy.  It was all gone -- I threw it all away.  I realized that my house is free of candy or chocolate temptations...except for the damn Gingerbread house.  I gently tore a piece off but the roof started to cave in.  I nervously turned it around but the candy began to fall off.  I was tempted to throw it all away but the kids had asked me several times if they could have some and I promised it would be today.

     I got caught.  Pretty embarrassing.  Today I admitted my faults to my acupuncturist who just laughed at me.  Maybe that's why I weighed in a whopping FOUR pounds heavier.  I asked him what "sweet" things I could have, he said "Stevia".  Really? Stevia? That's it?  Not even ON anything?  I think maybe he didn't quite understand my question so I said.  "How 'bout a cookie?".  Again he just laughed and shook his head no.  Seriously, where did those pounds come from?  Besides the bite of the house I was REALLY freaking good this week.  I didn't have wine every night like usual, I ate very well, I did a good amount of cardio this week, ran 2 miles yesterday and worked out really hard with my trainer on lower body exercises this morning.  I still feel as big as a gingerbread house!

I stopped at Whole Foods and got the best of the best ingredients to make whole, protein and veggie filled organic meals this week.  Let's try this again...

Yeah, I did that too. We made little houses and after I ate all the left over candies, a few days later, I caught myself picking off the lifesaver gummies we used as wreaths on the door.

LOL! The house was stale and I still ate it! :)
