Just One Question...

Does stuffing marshmallows down your mouth by the fistful 30 minutes before dinner, after you've just been to the gym for an hour and a half, on the same day your kids have been home all day due to a snow day, and the day after you've just lost your job of 13 years count as "Emotional Eating"?


Just sayin'.

Totally zero calories. And I say the shoveling counts are cardio. Now, get thee some wine!

If you eat directly out of the fridge, or in the case of marshmellow - the pantry , you actually lose weight especially if bending , reaching and stretching are involved.

My suggestions, put them on a high shelf.

I know, your blood sugar just crashed after all that exercise. Now, put the kids to bed early, get a cocktail and escape into some funny blog material.

Or sex, raises the endorphins. I am sure that the hubby won't mind.
Is he back from his little F B I vacation?

Marshmallows are basically health food so I say SHOVEL AWAY, BABY! :)

Under those circumstances you shouldn't have many critics. I've drowned many a sorrow with a king size Symphony bar over the years.

not unless the marshmallows have been warmed to the point of gooey softness...other than that - NO WAY! You were totally trying to fight of the starvation you induced at the gym. And I have to agree that said shoveling is very cardiovascular. Especially in those conditions.

Nope. Marshmellows are just white and air. Right?

Well, that depends on if you were standing when you were eating them. Because if you were standing, then it doesn't count as eating at all.
