*I am at work that much, but I don't really work the whole time. I am not very good at my job, plus I am a terrible procrastinator. I am still wrapping up 2012 things at work. Wish I wasn't!
So going into my week, I knew I would have to get some morning workouts in to make things happen. On Tuesday, I went to Walgreens to get a salad, picked up some pineapple, and saw a box of candy on clearance. Yes, I am a recovering candy addict, but I thought I could handle this little box of sour candies. And it went well. A serving size was 23 (!?!), but I gave myself 10 everyday at work for lunch and I still have many left. I had my usual froyo dinner (first Wednesday of the month when I work at the church) and I had some candy on that too. Then I get to where I am babysitting on Thursday. I heard "feed him xyz, and have whatever you like". I only babysit for these people 2-3 times a year, so I am not at their house often, but I know the mom has a sweet tooth (and she's SO thin too!). They have tons of boxes of girl scout cookies year round! So I am nosing around and I find a giant bag of delicious trail mix. Crap. And then I see a reese's pb cup bag peaking out of the cupboard, so I open it up and there's almost every candy they sell at the movie theater in there (didn't see any snocaps!). Out of a 48oz bag of M&Ms, they aren't going to miss a handful. That mindset just kept rolling and I had SO MUCH CANDY. I didn't even put a dent in their stash, but holy crap did I feel awful. My body was yelling at me to stop, but my tastebuds were in cahoots with my hand and my mouth. Just hand to mouth over and over and over.
I didn't eat all I had taken, so I put a small amount in my purse. I ate some of that on Friday and Saturday too. Then SwimSis and Coach had friends stay the weekend and they left a bunch of candy, so I just ate waaaaaaay too many candies while I did my food prep just because they were there. And now I feel awful again. I am so glad I weighed in Thursday morning because I'm sure I undid all of my hardwork plus the last week's work. Going to have to go back to the self-imposed candy ban. I really enjoy life a lot more when I'm not battling myself over where my next candy fix will come from. Seems funny to think of how easy life is that way. Over Easter I just left all the candy I got behind at my dad's and things were great that way.
Last week's weight: 230.0
This week (on Thurs): 228.6
Sunday night guess: 233 or more?!?
Ah, a new week, new resolve. Gotta stay on my toes and watch out for those awful old habits!!!
