A Rough Monday

Today has not been the smoothest or easiest Monday, which usually causes me to consume large amounts of Diet Coke (check!) and all the sweets I can get my hands on. So far, I've been good about the chocolate consumption, but it does not help when I find AMAZING recipes just waiting for me in my Google Reader.

Like Bakerella's super yummy-looking Cheesecake Bars...

And Tracie's Cookie Dough Brownies. You know, the ones I already know I can eat an entire pan of, but up until getting this recipe in my hands, have only been able to eat from time to time. This could get ugly!

Add the potential for indulging to the fact that I recently read Kristen's thoughts about The New "Mom Jean" (um yeah, those would be what I wear 98% of the time) and I think why not just go for it! No need to fit in your unfashionable mom jeans anyway, right? (P.S. Kristen originally wrote that post in April 2008 and I'm pretty sure that's around the time I started wearing them! Ugh! Can I claim Midwest-behind-the-times-itis?)

I think I probably should just go take a nap...and then wake up and start planning out some sort of workout schedule...and perhaps a closet intervention!

yes you can claim midwest behind the timeitis for sure!! i'm right there with you and there is NO WAY in heck I'd ever put a pair of skinny jeans on, not even to try them on, that's just foolish (and especially not after eating those cookie dough brownies...yum!) We are moms afterall, right? better wear mom jeans :(

Ok, I know I should be fostering the healthy route but from experience I can tell you that chocolate (in moderation) does help! I don't recommend baking either of those amazing desserts (due to portion control) but I do suggest you get your hands on a treat STAT! Trust me, it will help turn your day around.

I'd just like to say that I'm in my twenties, not a mom, and I still wear "Mom jeans"! Oh well. I don't want to look like all the U of I students anyway!
