I couldn't wait to post this picture. This is me on Saturday downing the end of the 2 litter bottle of diet coke I shared with my dad during his visit. I'm pretty sure that I drank most of it but this is about 1/100th of what I use to drink last year. I've been cutting back diet coke all year with great success.
I will get on my soap box about that at a later date.
This little buddies are what put me over my calorie range on Monday. My sweet friend Jan brought me home some from Utah by request. I had been eating only a few here and there, with total control. When I broke out the bag Monday it was the first time that I couldn't resist going back. So, I ended up eating the whole bag to get them out of my house so I wouldn't continue to have the problem all week.
I'm a believer of dumping the junk, however I can recall at least two times that dumped oreo cookies (in ziplocks) and pulled them out of the trash the next morning to eat more.
Yesterday as I was in the cookie isle looking for a treat for my boys I was having a hard time coming up with an acceptable choice. Either I was going to eat them too or they just weren't worth buying....so I didn't buy any of them. If I don't need them, neither does my family.
This morning as I looked for something to trash there wasn't anything....a few weeks into this and I'm already making better choices at the store!!!
Don't worry, I'll still buy candy for my kids for Easter....but the day after Easter the second round of challenge starts and it will be gone.
