Chocolate sabotage to be exact. I was all on track to lose about a pound or two this week then chocolate jumped down my throat. Actually I was making homemade icecream with the girls (Hunni got in on the action too). I decided I didn’t want to eat the icecream so I didn’t make any for myself. But I did partake in the chocolate chips and reduced fat oreos we used as toppings. I couldn’t stop at just one or even two. I had a few handfuls of the chips (white, heath and peanut butter) and about 6 or 7 oreos. Now don’t get me wrong, I had the points for them. But it was not the way I wanted to “spend” them. Instead I got that all to familiar sugar sick feeling from too much of the stuff for most of the night. I sufficiently chugged enough water to still see a loss on the scale today (0.6 is better than nothing), but I was sadly disappointed in myself.
However there is a bright side or two. I almost got into the white chips again later, I even had them in my hand, but I threw them away. I hate to waste food but I didn’t need to be tempted to eat them. And I threw out the rest of the heath chips today to avoid eating them. And now there are no more of those in the house. Today I filled up my fridge and fruit bowl with the yummy stuff I usually eat instead. I’ll be okay but I don’t need to be singing Beastie Boys songs again anytime soon.
