3 strikes you're out

I’ve been trying to eat healthy. I even wrote daily goals. Blogger World, I took the time to write on a piece of paper, healthy eating habits! Every day I’m trying to eat 2 fruits, 2 vegetables, and drink 64oz of water during work hours. I’ve been doing so well with my new healthy eating goals. But today the crap hit the fan. I don’t know what happen?

Let’s start with breakfast. I tried to be good- 2 whole wheat pancakes, with fresh blueberries and honey on top. But then I arrive at work and found homemade Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins and fresh Banana Bread. I couldn’t be rude and turn down those breakfast treats. Strike One!

After the train wreck of breakfast, it was on to lunch. I always bring my lunch, and my lunches are always healthy. No, they really are healthy. I would have been fine during lunch, if I would have eaten the lunch I prepared. But did I do that simple thing? Nope, I had a nice slice of blueberry pie with my healthy lunch. The lady who brought the muffins and bread also brought homemade Blueberry Pie. If you ask me, it’s a crime to pass on homemade blueberry pie. I mean, who even makes homemade pies anymore? Put your hand down Pioneer Woman! Strike Two

The afternoon snack I brought was grapes. At 3:30 I began to get hungry for my snack. But across from my office, in the food cub, I could see the homemade brownies. The lady who brought the muffins, bread, and pie also brought brownies. Seriously, what is wrong with this lady? Is she trying to make us all fat! STOP WITH THE BAKING! I ate my grapes thinking it would curve my hungry, but it didn’t. I could still see the brownies. They were calling my name. I could hear them…OK Chick eat me….EAT MEEAT ME! I was strong for 35 minutes. At 4:15 I caved and had brownies, and not just one brownie but two! AHHH I’m awful, just shoot me now! STRIKE THREE!

Blogger World, it has officially been a bad, bad, bad, bad day on healthy eating goals. Tomorrow will be a better day…I promise.

Ok, let's break this down:

Lemon poppy seed muffins: Lemon = vitamin C

Banana Bread: Banana is a fruit!

Blueberry Pie: Blueberries is a serving a fruit.

Brownies: You deserved them after eating all that fruit.

I like the way Emily thinks!

But's time to kill baker lady. That was totally WRONG for her to bring in all of that today. What is wrong with her head?

Wow, that's a lot of baking in one weekend! I guess it could have been much, much worse!

Hey, I make homemade pies. In fact, there is a homemade blackberry pie sitting in my kitchen right now.

And if you need some more fruit, feel free to come have some. Just be warned it is Lance's grandmother's recipe which includes LOTS of sugar and real butter. Yum.

That is my summer in a nut shell. I have Baking Betty sitting next to me, and she would bake a cake a week. She made chocolate chip cookie dough cheesecake twice! She left them in my cube because she knew I love it.

This is why I gained ten pounds in three months!

I love to bake and take stuff in to the office, but it's more like brownies one week, cookies three weeks later. That's a LOT of stuff at once.
