Blindsided by Moose....

Saturday, April 06, 2013

So I have been having a good week so far. I got through the Easter weekend and a small incident with a chocolate mint pie...pretty well. I am feeling good and adding walking to my exercise. I am loving my greek yogurt with flax meal and I think okay, I am ready for the added challenge of doing this healthy lifestyle while working.
I still have one week left and I am planning on sorting through clothes and sending them on to good will so my clothes are organized before I start work in a week.

As further proof of my together, mindful state I am reading Oprah. Its 1am, my 19 yr old son comes home from visiting with a friend after work. He hands me the black garbage bags I have been waiting for. But then he starts pulling stuff out of the pouch on his hoodie-
"Grandpa sent this to us, I guess his brother's wife sent a package for Easter"

I look up-he hands me pastel bunny corn, little foil covered chocolate balls- so far- no problem. Then because this is a package from Harry and Davids (an american company that sells packages of goodies including fruit, cookies etc for holidays.) he hands me a little bag of MOOSE MUNCH! Moose Munch is like caramel popcorn but so much better- including little nuggets of chocolate covered nuts and caramel popcorn. I LOVE MOOSE MUNCH!

I immediately start trying to open the little package which is sealed very tightly- do I pay attention to how resistant the package is? no, I keep fighting with the package. finally getting it open and stuffing the chocolate covered pieces in my mouth .
My son Nate is looking at me strangely- it is so delicious! I am eating piece after piece. My conscience is starting to say- "what are you doing Marianne?"
When "OW!" I am stopped by my tooth that has been hurting that needs to be pulled. (which is another story.)
My son says- "Well that was a dumb thing to be chewing on that with your tooth- what are you doing????"
I return to reality- my tooth hurts and I just realize that I am eating moose munch..
I hand it to my son- "get it out of here-" he puts it on a side table.
"NO, I say- you need to hide it- take it upstairs- and take the candy corn and the chocolate balls too!"
I can't believe I almost consumed a whole little bag of moose munch- at least all the chocolate pieces.

BUT I was saved by my bad tooth and now I will go put it in my food tracker...

    I read your blog comment on my page from yesterday. You are doing wonderful with your increased activity. I know what you mean by it your weight loss not being that noticeable to others, but you have noticed how it's making you feel. That's exactly where I'm at! In fact, I'm still wearing the same jeans I started in. A couple pair are close to being gone, but the rest of them are still okay. Difference is I can finally dry them. LOL! Some of my shirts are getting a bit too big. Summer clothes may need a refresher. But I feel so much better. It's so much easier to walk...even from the car to the grocery store, and through the grocery store.
I know about Moose Munch! So sorry it came into your house :) But don't guilt yourself to death. It's done and over, and you stopped before you finished the bag. Even if it was the tooth...which by the way NEEDS to be taken care of.
I had a marvelous time in Missouri. I stayed through lunch. Danielle fixed Habanero burgers that were amazing! They use extra lean ground beef from a cow quarter they purchased. It was a really low calorie yummy lunch.
I had healthy snacks packed for the trip home. I'm good for the day.
Keep at it girl. We are in this together.

    Ouch for your tooth! Hope you can get it fixed! Good for you for not finishing that bag and not wanting the other candy either. IMO, Easter candy is the best holiday candy of the year.

    Dear Marianne,

We all suffer some form of setbacks during our weight loss. Luckily, your tooth told you before you really took a major step backwards. Life happens my friend. We must be stronger than our temptations and our weaknesses. I know it's hard to lose weight when everyone in the house is not on the same page as you. But you will be victorious! I will be victorious when the semester is over...

Remember, little by little we will get there together.


Hugs!

P.s. Dentist do have payment plans to fix teeth or check out a local college that needs guinea pigs, I mean volunteers.... just kidding about the guinea pigs part... lol.

    and make a dentist appt ASAP. A bad tooth can be very dangerous health wise, so getting it taken care of is VERY important. I know money may be an issue right now but talk to the dentist about a payment plan or use a credit card if you have too sweetie. Don't let that tooth go unattended much longer you will be sorry. As for the Moose Munch, you're right it is delicious and I hope your son hide it well, LOL !!!
