"Alright, who bought the jumbo bags of chocolate?!"

Oh man, living with my family can be SO hard sometimes! My dad and sister have the same kind of metabolism; meaning they can eat anything and everything and stay the same weight no matter what. Why I didn't get that gift is beyond me....

And then of course, the candy is already out in stores for Halloween so that's not helping anything.

Earlier today, I ate 3 fun size Kit Kats. I counted them (6 points) and moved on. For about 30 minutes. Then I had some more. (Now up to 10 points). Yeah, they were good but then obviously I was pissed at myself for eating 10 points of just chocolate before 2pm. I had had cereal for breakfast, which is a big splurge for me these days, so after lunch (salmon) and a couple other things thrown in there, I was maxed out on my points.

What the hell is wrong with me sometimes? It's that damn moment when I say "Oh, screw it" that just really effs me up. The following moment always involves feeling guilty, so you'd think I would learn...

But what did I do? I was full from lunch and everything, so I went to work and didn't think about it. And then when I came home, I ate spaghetti squash and canned tomatoes and basil and Parmesan cheese for 0 points. Well maybe the parm was a point, but the moral of the story is I stayed within my points for the day even tho they ran out at like 2pm!

I have days like that too, we all do. This is a learning experience and we can't always expect our days to go perfect. The good parts are that you counted them all, and you ate within your points even after making a mistake! You will just move on and do better tomorrow and make them hide the dang candy!

It is great that you were able to get back on track. I cannot have those chocolates in my house until days before....it is just too hard!

I ran into some Kit Kats and Reese Pieces a few weeks ago. I literally don't even think. I just eat. HORRIBLE. Good for you for going with a super light dinner and getting back on track!

You did great working around your "mis-steps" - I think that is the way it is supposed to be, since we can't stay away from chocolate for the rest of our lives!

You made the mistake but at the end of the day you didn't keep making the mistake. I always have junk food in the house for my husband but now I keep it in the basement so it's out of my sight. It helps alot.

The best part of your post is how you did not go back to your old habits and continue eating those mini bars. That is an excellent step forward. The longer you stay on this journey the more often you will do just that. Good for you staying within your points! Have a great weekend!

Your body must have needed it, and that's ok. Congrats on staying within your points though....lol....that must have been tough!

That's AWESOME that you were able to finish the day on a good note! That is probably the hardest thing for me--once I "screw up", I tend to just blow it for the rest of the day. Great job!!
