The "Lil" Treat

Friday, November 22, 2013

On the Fit Food Challenge today my article asked that I give myself a treat and went on to say treats every now and then are OK in moderation.

I was really busy today getting ready for my family to have Thanksgiving at our home this Sunday. About 3:00 in the afternoon I became so tired I decided I just had to sit for a little rest. This is a vulnerable time for me because I love to eat when I an resting. I also love anything chocolate and we had some left-over treats from Halloween. I decided one of those little mini treats wouldn't be so bad and chose a "Mallo Cup" for my treat. When I listed it tonight and saw the calories it cost me it wasn't nearly as good as I thought. 5 ounces had that many calories?!

    I put the small size treats from Halloween in the freezer. When the craving arises, I take one out to eat, just to satisfy the cravings. With the candy being frozen, it takes longer to eat. It is amazing how many calories are in some of this candy but my sweet tooth loves reminding me that it is still around me.

    It is amazing the calories in some of those small little desserts. I have started trying what I cconsider the really expensive chocolate as a treat and I just eat a little bit at a time so calories aren't to bad. Have fun with your family this wweekend.

    I have a sweet tooth that needs to be satisfied or I will just go berserk and scarf everything in sight. Those little Halloween size treats are good for me.
