I hate to admit it, but I've had a serious consumption issue with baked goods lately. Actually, the truth is, I've had a problem with cookies, cake, chocolate chips, peanut butter on a spoon, frosting on a spoon, the list goes on. Last night the husband noted that all of our silverware was in the dishwasher, yet the entire top rack was empty.
Basically, if you can put it on a spoon, I've been putting it in my mouth. Not. Good.
It's unhealthy to beat myself up over this, I know, but the fact is I'm not eating well, and my poor habits don't just affect me anymore. I've got to get this under control, for the sake of my Banana Republic jeans I'd like to wear again in November, as well as for my little people I feed every day.
Thank you, Jenn, of Peas and Crayons, for hosting WIAW. This fun get-together is holding me accountable and making me a bit more mindful of my mindless eating. And hopefully this will help me eat a few more celery sticks and not so many slices of cake! (Oh, I can dream, can't I?)

Snack: 1 oz. sharp cheddar + 1 green apple; about 1 cup honey-nut o's cereal; water
Dinner: blueberry waffles; skim milk (I was so excited about waffles I completely forgot to take a picture - and I was busy feeding the little peeps squash, so I kind of had my hands full.)
