Chocolate Egg-stravaganza

Sunday, March 01, 2009

So yesterday I confessed to one of the message boards that I have been craving these Hershey's Candy Coated Milk Chocolate Eggs for days and days. On the board, I said I was planning to buy them, portion them into individual servings, and freeze them to eat one serving at a time. Seriously, it was kind of sick how much I had been obsessing over these darn eggs (just ask the bf - I was talking like a drug addict looking to score).

So, today, when I did my grocery shopping, I bought a bag of the desired eggs. I started eating them on the way home from the store (I know, bad move to eat in the car.) Before I stopped, I had eaten 16 of them (which is two servings, according the bag) for a grand total of 340 calories! Luckily, by the time I hit #16, I had bagged up the rest into little 4-egg (85 calorie) portions and popped them in the freezer.

I've logged the eggs into my tracker, and yes they're going to skew my fat/carb ratios today, but I'm still within my calorie range, so I'm just not letting it bother me. The best part is that I'm not PERSEVERATING on those darn eggs like I was before. Finally, the little mini binge is behind me, and I'm back in control. This just shows me that, every once in a while, it's best just to do it, get it over with, and get back on the boat! You know what I mean?!?! emoticon

    Ha, ha, ha....!!! Your comments are making me laugh because things have been spinning more and more wildly out of control since my little eggs-travaganza the other today. Today, I had two servings of those eggs for breakfast, which I did knowing that it would mean little to no food for the rest of the day! Then, my coworker 'gifted' me a box of yummy Green Tea mints because I'm always asking her for a mint, and she bought these mints that she didn't end up liking. I told her that it was a dangerous thing to send me back to my desk with a whole box of mints. Twenty minutes later, I went back to her with my tail between my legs. I gave her back the box of mints which was now half empty. Argh. Oh well, it's still only a temporary setback. In the grand scheme of things, even if I go a **leetle** off track for several days, it's better than being WAY off track EVERY day. You know what I mean?

    Good for you being so smart! I'm so proud of you! You are absolutely right as is Wilsonswetsy. You can't deprive yourself or one day you will go crazy and eat the WHOLE bag! What you did is so much better!

    My weakness is kit kats. I love them! I keep the minis around cuz they aren't so bad, and I only keep a few of them in my house at a time.

    You are being so smart! You can do this, and you are doing this; keep it up girl! emoticon

    You can't always deprive yourself . . . indulge on occasion, just in moderation. You are on the right track with the portioning.

    I am obsessed with the holiday versions of Reese Cups (the trees, bunnies, etc).

    I may try the same technique of freezing them into portions - that way I don't binge eat them...I will have to think about it first, thaw them out and hopefully then I won't want them anymore.
