Where Did Spring Go??


Hey! Who came and stole Spring while I was sleeping? Last night I went out to my car to get something and it was very pleasant. (Although the Peepers were mysteriously quiet...) And this morning I'm brushing snow off my car? What gives?! This Sunday is Easter and when we have an April Easter it's supposed to be sunny....and mild....and sometimes even warm enough to skip the coat!

Well, with the sudden shift to winter, my mood has followed suit. Today is the last day of school before Spring Break. I face a whole 10 days that I don't have to get up at 5 AM and make a 40 minute commute to work. Sounds nice....but I'm nervous because I'll be on my own as far as eating goes. You see it's like this - at school I cannot just walk over to the fridge and browse when the whim strikes. I have to eat lunch at a certain time and the food I packed in the wee hours of the morning (when my resolve is still good) is all I'm stuck with. And because I go to bed so early (9:30, because I'm up so early) I don't graze right through David Letterman like I used to. So it's kind of like the training wheels have been taken off my diet.

And of course with the holiday weekend coming up, there will be no lack of tempting food. We go to my sister's tomorrow night with my siblings for a ham dinner and egg coloring contest. Sunday we're hosting Brunch at our house after church for my hubby's side of the family. His mom always brings these cream puffs to die for. And that evening we go to my cousin's for yet another dinner. And then there's all that chocolate that comes with the holiday. Oooh boy. I'm in trouble.

When did Easter become all about food and bunnies and eggs? Perhaps my focus needs some re-alignment.

Why not keep the same schedule that you had when school was in session? Maybe not the exact SAME schedule but something like it??

Eat something healthy before you hit the relatives house, that way you wont be prone to binging. Good Luck and happy easter!
