Hope I don't regret this in the morning

Tuesday, February 25, 2014



I stopped Into Walmart this evening and while waiting in line to pay for stuff, I grabbed some Reese's.
I bought the king size too...which means I just ate 440 calories of junk, with 46 grams of carbs in the whole package.
For anyone on weight watchers, there is 12 points in the whole package. Wow, that's almost 1/2 of my daily points just in 1 purchase of candy.

I was not really hungry when I bought it. I even hid it in my purse before going outside to find my brother and go home. (Yes, I paid for it first) but I knew my brother would give me some kind of speech about diabetes or weightloss if he had seen it. Funny how I am almost 50 and I am still hiding food from my younger brother.

Well hopefully I don't find a gain on the scales in the morning.

    The fact that you hide it says how you really feel about it. It's so hard when the food is just there. It's something we've always like, and don't necessarily want, but still eat it. Just move on and emoticon

    If you find you are really having a hard time resisting Reese's cups, Quest has an alternative that you might want to check out: http://www.questproteinbar.com/crav
    ings/. Bear in mind the number of calories is almost the same but the protein content is much higher and net carbs much lower.

    This is why I don't eat Reeses One Day At A Time. They call to me wherever I go, but I haven't had any in years now. The attraction is academic by now and I can't take the chance of having that taste in my mouth again. I stroll on by, then go home and have coffee with a teaspoon of half and half. It's just as much of an indulgence, but without the regret.

    Oh, I've been there. I've had some luck with keeping some good chocolate at home, so I'm not tempted to do the impulse buy.

    I like to have some Skinny Cow chocolates around, because the portion size is so reasonable and the calorie count is in the 120-130 range even for a full package /serving, which I can accommodate on most days.

    Even better, my favorites actually have 3-6 bite sized pieces per pouch, so I can easily have a little bit of chocolate whenever I want some. I count the calories for the pouch when I take the first piece, but I'll often have only a piece or two a day for a while, and I don't have to track them individually. Only when I open a new pouch.

    In any case, tomorrow is a new day and another opportunity to make great choices. You got this.

    mistakes happen and you are human. I have temptations too. Sometimes I give in and sometimes I don't.

    Now you know what an addict feels like- hiding their stash to avoid repercussions. So, today is past, start fresh again tomorrow! Go to the self checkouts, they normally have less junk by them. Turn your head and don't look at it. Stop by the deli and grab a snack or a dark chocolate bar so you know you have something to chow in the car. If absolutely nothing else will do, grab a regular size one

    I just look away when I get to that part of the store and keep my mind on other things.

    Don't be so hard on yourself, occasional treats are necessary or we begin to feel like we are eating cardboard. If you haven't eaten the chocolate bar yet, maybe cut it in half and share it with your brother. Or eat it after a big workout as a reward.
