Nothing In Moderation

This week is Teacher Appreciation Week.

The students and the PTA have been sHoWeRiNg us with gifts, treats and goodies all week long.

Yesterday was AWESOME!

The PTA provided the staff with a HUGE smorgasbord (I had to look up the spelling on that) of desserts.

I feasted on a variety of sugary treats ... all ... day ... long.

I'm not kidding.

Last night I barely ate (because I could NEVER officially skip a meal altogether) any dinner because all I could think about was my caloric intake for the day.

For the entire day, I ended up eating:
1 brownie
1 chocolate/peanut butter bar
7 ... yes 7 sugar cookies with frosting.

Allow me to sum up the gravity of my food choices yesterday: I ate NINE dessert items!

I had to wear my 'fat pants' today.

I'm walking on the treadmill when I get home.

Thank you PTA! Thank you students!

You are loved.

When I was teaching full-time I would clean out my cupboards of things that my own kids would no longer eat. I would take the boxes and bags of goodies to the teachers lounge and watch everything disappear. Free food is divine!

oh man, that is something I would do. I have no control when it comes to sweets!
