Oops, again.

Wednesday, April 17, 2013


I ate a whole bag of Snickers minis today. That's right. I ate 11.5 oz of snickers instead of having a proper lunch and snack. And really, after the first few, they just tasted like sugar. And yet I kept eating them...

I did go for a 3 mile walk, finished off with 25 minutes of jogging intervals this evening! That's my first time doing jogging intervals in... let me look... a month. It went surprisingly well, actually! I was pleased.

So... snickers vs. walk/jog... maybe evened out?

Plus, I'm getting extra water in these last three days!

That's all I really have to say for today...

    This is a strange idea but what if you told yourself, "I love the part of me that loves chocolate! In fact, I am doing a really great job at becoming disciplined and healthy so I'm going to reward myself with a little well-deserved chocolate every day!" I am not ashamed to tell you that I am a chocolate lover and I love the Spark People diet because chocolate is quite acceptable in this diet plan. I include a little chocolate in my diet almost every day. I have lost over 50 pounds eating chocolate (well, not just chocolate, of course...) I especially enjoy Hersheys Dark Chocolate Kisses - what a treat and only 20 calories. I let the kiss melt slowly in my mouth - savoring it for all its worth. Often just one is quite satisfying knowing that I accept this as a legitimate part of my diet and can have it on a daily basis. So if this idea appeals to you, make adjustments in your calorie plan to include some daily chocolate nutrition. I've heard about research proving that chocolate, especially dark chocolate, is quite good for you. So if it is good for you (in moderation, of course) why not enjoy it! Could it be true that a chocolate a day keeps the binge away?

    It happens. Try to avoid more over the next week! Don't want to get addicted to that sugar! (Lol! Me too!- I should follow my own advice.)

    we have all been there with a bag of something we hate that we ate - all that matters is that you get back on the horse and not let it be an excuse to ruin all your hard work!!!

  Well, we all have days when we eat too much of the wrong things. You did well to not let that ruin the day, and to get your exercise in. Congrats - you are definitely on the right track!
