I know it is only Day Three of my nanny job but I am already fearing the safety of my bearish figure. I’ve worked hard for this figure and I don’t want to lose it!
The first week in our new apartment I found myself wanting to snack when I was bored (which was a lot since I was studying). Fortunately we didn’t have much in the pantry to snack on. Then my sister and her boyfriend came to visit with a huge bag of junk food in tow, which they *kindly* left for us to finish, so last week I munched on moosemunch and chocolate covered pretzals and gummy bears. I worked out every day while I was chowing down though so I didn’t feel that bad.
You’d think that now that I have a 9 hour day with two little boys I would find myself too busy to think about snacking…WRONG. Monday and Tuesday were horrible b/c all I could think about was food. I made a menu for the next two weeks, worked on our grocery shopping list, looked up some new recipes, tasted some chocolate cheerios (I don’t even like chocolate), tasted some Chex Mix, tasted a yogurt covered breakfast bar, I think you get my point. Thankfully their house is not filled with junk food – it’s just that there is more of a variety of ‘treats’ available than our place.
SO – I need some help here blogfriends. How does this Nanny Bear stop from snacking all day long!?
I have a 2.5 hour break by myself while the boys are both in school and the family has been more than nice by offering up their treadmill and Wii Fit for my use. I am going to force myself to work out this afternoon without getting too sweaty, but I just know that when it’s lunchtime for me and Kid 2 I am going to want a taste of some of those delicious snacks in their pantry…
