April & Sarah Go On A Diet: The Spaghetti Sauce Chronicles

That’s right. Sarah and I are on diets. It’s out in the open. I’m ready to kiss my double chin and empty baby gut goodbye, while Sarah wants to present Andrew with a little less to love on her wedding day.

Dieting is hard. We love food. We love snacking, elevensies and train feast. Thus the diets.

We made it through Day One with only minor hiccups. We did spend 23 minutes deliberating over the most nutritionally optimal afternoon snack, culminating in my declaration that the food industry hates people who want to better themselves. I settled for oats and honey granola bars.

The rest of the day was uneventful. Until our walk home, when I told Sarah about my need to be able to write things down when I’m in the shower (more on that later). Sarah said she had a solution, and I responded: “Spaghetti sauce?” Because I honestly believed she was going to tell me to write on the shower tiles with spaghetti sauce. It made perfect sense at the time in my calorie-deprived state. And it still does.

I might not survive.

  1. It must be a week of fresh starts because my other half started one too that excludes almost all the good food groups, including beer.Good luck to you both, even though I think you both look fab!

  2. My new diet is to only eat things the baby eats. Rice cakes. Apple Sauce. Cheerios…. okay, so maybe the healthiness breaks down at the cheerios.

    • I’d get fat eating what Max eats. He needs to put on some weight, so he eats a lot of cheese and real butter.

  3. Drink lots and lots and lots of water! Makes you less hungry and gives you a reason to leave your desk every half hour 🙂
