Day 2 of 40

Thursday, February 14, 2013

It was all going so well until dinner...

I cooked tonight, a healthy meal. I ran into issues when I ate one piece of my husband's Valentine's candy. He bought each of us a box of peanut M&M's. So I did the right thing and read the label, seeing that the box held 2.5 servings, one serving being 1/4 of a cup.

Have you ever measured 1/4 cup of peanut M&M's? If it were packaged and sold, it would look like one of those single serving packets of Advil, or maybe even the size of a large wet wipe packet that's given to you at BW3's. It seems ridiculously small, but the label doesn't lie.

So I ate that 1/4 cup of M&M's, knowing it was 220 calories. And I didn't care. Then I ate the rest of the bag. So 660 calories for stupid M&M's. I logged it. I went over the high-end of my calorie count by 400 - 500 calories today. STUPID.

I did my 15 minutes of Dr. Oz's "Insanity with Sean T" as found on YouTube. So that's 2 days in a row now.

I forgot to mention that hubby also bought me some awesome workout clothes. I'm wearing them right now, certain that my thighs are too large to proudly wear the pants outside of my house. But that will change, especially now that the M&M's are out of the house.
Nine more days until I take another pic of my face for comparison. I'm taking it every 10 days through this 40 day challenge. I just have to get my head on straight and match the exercise with the intake!

Thanks for supporting me!

Peace Out,

    Exercise has a way of helping out with those food bumps. Stay on track with the workouts and everything will turn out good for you. After a little while you will not even want the sweets. emoticon emoticon Best of luck to you. emoticon
