To stay in the same vein as last night's post, here's more information about my children's eating habits. This afternoon at 3pm the boys shared 3 apples worth of slices. Then at 5pm dinner came along and here's what they ate. Each one had an individual package of Annie's Organic Macaroni and Cheese, about 1/3 of a can of corn, a large portion of instant mashed potatoes (they're obviously carb loading for something- oh yeah, the life of a pre-schooler) and a leg off of their gingerbread men. Superman then polished off a large serving of applesauce. He finished and asked for a yogurt, but we decided to cut off the eating for the night. He didn't protest enough to show that he really needed that yogurt. One evening last week they each had 1 apple, 1 pear and THREE blueberry waffles followed by yogurt. I can't really complain about the things they request for food, their favorites are fruit, yogurt and cheese- but sometimes the quantities just amaze me. I wonder how we'll ever feed 2 teenage boys and any possible future children as well. Maybe that will be the answer to my own diet- there just won't be enough food to feed all of us, so I might lose some weight. They're probably just in concurrent growth spurts, there are plenty of days that dinner consists of picking at approximately 6 bites of food before leaving the table. They probably regulate their intake better than most adults as this age- when they're not hungry, they don't eat. No issues about it.
It's starting to turn a little colder, guess it had to happen in December since it is the northeast. We've had so many recent days of temps in the 50s we were getting pretty spoiled. Highs for the rest of the week will be in the 30s and 40s. At least my exercise has already moved indoors, the outdoor air at those temperatures feels like it instantly freezes my lungs. The only real trouble I've had with my asthma over the past few years has been out in the cold. Not sure about tomorrow morning's workout, I think I'll go for the treadmill hill workout. If I give it a good hour or so that will be a decent effort. Work starts to clear out tomorrow, by Friday afternoon I should be just about the only person there, okay not really since there are a few thousand of us at work. But the coworkers in my immediate are will all be gone, nice and quiet.
