The party is over

There have been many studies that conclude children thrive with routine and will attempt to regulate their food intake when left on their own with many choices.
Oh sure, they headed right for the cookies and ice cream in the beginning. But given time, they started to eat the things their bodies needed. Fruits, grains, vegetables and protein.

Being alone in the house, I felt like a kid in a candy store.
I could eat whatever I wanted?
Eat whenever I wanted?
I didn't have to fix 3 meals a day?
I could sleep as long as I wanted?
I could read in bed all night?
OMG, it was just too much for my brain to handle. I was giddy with the possibilities.

But, like the children in the studies, the novelty has worn off. I now crave nutritious food, set meal times and my weekly schedule!

My private little party is over. It is time to get back into my routine.
