Staff Appreciation Day Pigout

Wednesday, May 03, 2017

For Staff Appreciation Day, I was given a pretty bookmark and 2 candy bars. Of course, that chocolate sitting on my table looked too irresistible to pass up. My conscience told me to not eat it, but my will power said, "This is going to taste really good, and after all, it was given to me as a treat." emoticon

At first, I was going to only eat a third of the candy bar, but I just didn't want to stop. After all, I reasoned that the candy bar was going to be sitting around tempting me to eat it at another time. As a result, temptation took over and I ate the whole candy bar.

The other candy bar was for another day, again my reasoning came into play. After lunch, my conscience spoke to me and said, *I already had one candy bar today. Two in a day is not acceptable. However, my craving for something sweet again took over, and a KitKat bar won over my angelically reasoning mind, and overly satisfied my sweet tooth.

I am close to have eaten 900 calories and haven't had dinner yet, so my intention is to stay within my calorie range, although, I probably will go over the fat range. Exercise planned for the day, is to mow both front and back lawns, and depending on how I feel, so some walk/jogging. Hopefully, the exercise will burn enough calories to counteract what I choose to have for dinner, and my candy bar consumption. emoticon emoticon

    hahahaha .... that sounds like my sort of rationale. I never used to have a sweet tooth at all, and don't often have one now, but IF someone has given me some chocolates, I will chow it down pretty quick smart. My rationale is that if I eat it now it isn't there to tempt me later emoticon

    I have been there and have done that. I love how you justified eating them. emoticon
    To me, that is normal, you were only at 900 calories and had planned exercise. Each person has their own ideas about weight loss, don't feel guilty emoticon

    Oh Dear...
    I too have been fighting with this however at present I am winning...
    Had a small/mini bar which I thoroughly enjoyed and was just enough to sort the sweet
