Just so you know, diet is not a bad word to me. I've never gone "on a diet". Diet literally just means what you eat on a daily basis. So you can have a healthy diet, or an unhealthy diet.
Lately, I have a couple more pounds than I normally do, which hasn't bothered me too much. I'm at a healthy weight, although not at my "ideal" weight, but I have been wondering why it hasn't gone anywhere. Another caveat, usually I lose weight without really trying, if I exercise or try to eat healthier I often gain weight. However, I have been buying and trying to eat more produce lately, so as I was sitting down to a pre-lunch cup of homemade hot chocolate (milk, cocoa powder, and sugar) with marshmallows, I wondered if maybe there is something in my diet that I need to cut back on.
Hehehehe, I know you are all thinking it's the pre-lunch hot chocolate. In actuality, that was just the one time, and I'm not really sure if it's anything specific. I tend to want to snack in the late afternoon, which is probably part of the problem. I also tend to reach for something quick during those snacks (generally it's because my 2-year old is crying after he wakes up from his nap and I want a snack we both will eat).
OK, so I guess I know what the problem is, but it's really hard to find a healthy snack that will pacify a crying baby and calm a cranky momma.
I also could probably try to exercise more than standing in the shade watching my kids ride their bikes around the circle.
