Saturday morning I brought home a delicious-looking homemade pecan roll. I'm assuming it actually was delicious because everyone raved about them. (It really looked great.) I did not eat it, but gave it to my son.
He loved the roll and asked why I didn't eat it. When I replied that it had too many calories, he laughed at me. "If you exercise enough, you can eat whatever you want," he said with a superior tone.
He is absolutely right! And I am glad he learned this at a young age. The funny thing was, I had just finished walking 6 miles and I didn't want to use those extra burned calories on breakfast. My husband and I were going out that night, and I didn't want to worry about what I comsumed later.
