It seems like my girls are learning a few new things along with there mom...here a couple of my favorites

At lunch today my four year old picked up her carrot looked at it and said "curses you cookie, you turn into a carrot everytime!" (at least she ate it though)



At our local grocery store they give out a free cookie in the bakery. I gave one to each of my girls and proceeded to the produce department. My 4 year old had her hand behind her back and a look of guilt on her face. When I asked her what was going on she said, "I threw away my cookie and got something better." With all the variety of packaged cookies, cupcakes and donuts around I couldn't even imagine what she "traded up" for. "Hmmm, so Ellen what do you have" eyes wide amd a huge smile on her face she pulls out a full head of BROCCOLI! and takes a huge bite out of it and says, "mmm, broccoli oh how I love you"...oh, but the story doesn't end there...I of course have to give her the lecture of how we can't just help ourselves to things and that we need to pay first, as I look over only to see my 3 year old has climbed into the back of the cart, cookie fully intact on the front seat and she is helping herself to handfulls of grapes!!!

Sorry, but I couldn't leave this one out...

My girls love Salmon. However I typically broil it with a very yummy marinade called "Bayou Burbon Glaze" Well, needless to say i forgot it one day and when we sat down to dinner, my daughter took a bite of hit, placed her hand on her hip and said, "Uh Mom, seems like somethings missin'." Great, at 4 years old I already have my daughter hooked on Bourbon! LOL

LOL you should be proud!!! I totally love it when my kids like some of the healthy stuff I eat. My daughter was grubbin on the low-carb Muffin-In-a-Minute's I've been making & I'm conflicted about it...on one hand I am thrilled she likes them, but on the other, I don't want her eatin up all my flaxmeal! Small price to pay for a healthier kid, I guess, lol.

LOL kids...especially daughters are sooo funny!! My daughter will eat fruits and veggies over candy too! She's always like salad...weird child lol
She'll "work out" with me...for like 5minutes and then she flexes her muscles and says she's worn out!

@Kat: I'm conflicted too when my daughter wants my yogurt or something else that I've bought specifically to help me...she's being healthy but its mine LOL

All of you are so lucky! My boys just will not do veggies and fruits. It kills me and I try on a daily basis but as of now they are still winning the fight.

I finally got my 7 year old to eat apples and what happens...he takes a bite and loses hit tooth....urghhh It was already kinda of loose so I guess thats ok but now he is super cautious about eating them.

I hope all of you know how lucky you are! There is nothing that my son would trade a cookie for, unless it was a chocolate iced donut!

He wouldnt touch broccoli with a 10 foot pole!

My niece does things like that all the time when we go shopping. It cracks me up the other day we went shopping and I said you can have buy a treat for yourself today. She stopped looked at me and said "anything I want??" I said yup even chocolate she pondered it for a minute and said "can we go get some cheese strings please, I feel like Cheese is healthier than chocolate" lol

You say you want a cheeseburger but all I hear is "I need love" - a comic strip on the fridge at work.

You have failed only when you quit trying. Until then, you're still in the act of progression. So, never quit trying and you'll never be a failure.

For christmas, I bought my son a set of the (i think they're vtech) money baby "dumbells" and I keep them with my weights. Whenever I pick mine up, he picks his up... and while i'm not sure we get much of a workout, we sure do have a lot of fun shaking them around and making his money make noises that mommy is then supposed to imitate =).

He also thinks the stability ball is the best thing in the world... hence, I am "forced" to spend a whole lot of time sitting on it, doing various motions that most definitely engage my core, while he sits on me and laughs his tiny little rear off.

I'm just happy that he's interested in being active, and that I can be active enough to encourage him! =)

so, at least I am not the only one who is conflicted when their children want the "good food" My 8 year old loves my protein smoothie and asks for one just about every morning and my 3 year old ask for yogurt as her dessert.

I was babysitting 3 kids the other night and all 3 went for the fruit bowl instead
of the chips and cookies on the counter. One of the girls ate almost 3
Mandarin oranges but she offered me a couple wedges ( I said no thanks but she
Wouldn't take no for an answer ) . I think if a parent shows good judgement when it comes to eating it can rub off on the kids.

I bought Whole Wheat buns for my Turky burgers and my guy's hamburgers. I was unsure if I should by regular buns for my 16 year old son. So I decide why spend extra money for one person who might use 2 or 3 buns and let the rest waist. I made him some hamburgers the other day he came in and said Mom is whole wheat buns all we have of course I said yes frowning he ate them. I dare not tell him the Spaghetti noodles he had been eating for the last month are whole wheat. I'm changing one thing at at time, like I chop bell peppers and onion up so little and saute them so there not crunchy and he eat them in the meat loaf never knows they are there. At least he is eating veggies that way.

why?
why go to this much effort? Just quit obsessing about food and focus on exercise instead. I'm 59, a decade post-stroke and I eat maybe 1200/kcal/day and walk at least 10 miles a week.

how does this work?
I consume about 1200 kcal/day and walk about 10 miles a eek. Do I search for and document what I eat?

Help......cravings...
Weird, I keep seeing people say keto takes away their cravings yet so many yo-yo, quit altogether and leave the site, or have a weekly binge. Wonder why.
