A small set back

Well, I wouldn't call it a set back. Things like this happen all of the time. I went over my calories yesterday by 96. I say it is small because yes, I went over my calories, but 96 isn't a big deal in the grand scheme of things. It could have been worse.

Do you want to know what put me over? A King Sized candy bar. The bar said it was only 240 calories....but when I put it into my calorie counter it said a serving was only 1/2 a bar. So really the calories (because I at the whole thing) were 480 calories!! That is like the calories for my lunch all together!! I was weak and gave in t the sugar.

So, I am going to just bounce back after this mess up. I'm not the only one. It probably wont be the last time I do this, but at least I am aware and I didn't try and cheat by not counting it. I have really been honest with my calorie counting and it feels good to do that. I feel like I am actually trying, and I am seeing results because of it=)

Well, I am off to my Masters class. It is from 10-4 today. I am really excited, but also nervous. Wish me luck!!

Confession: Even though I had eaten a candy bar earlier that day, and I knew I would be close to m calories, I still ate a skinny cow icecream when Igot home. Sugar is the devil!!!

Cheer: I am being honest and not trying to hide anything. When I do hide stuff, I start overeating and that is bad. Honesty is the best policy!!


  1. Ouch! Serving size is so important! I just discovered that 100 grand candy- each little bar is 100 calories, the regular package for just 200! Perfect treat when you need some chocolate but need to keep the calories low.

    Another thing I've been thinking about after reading your blogs- eating out. Eating out uses SO many calories, not to mention money. Look at how much you've been spending eating out in a month, then look at how much you could be buying the healthier foods with that money. We go out to a regular restaurant twice a month. We may do fast food about once a week, if even that. Find simple meals to cook that are low in calories, and you'll be so much healthier and end up with fewer money arguments.

    Love ya girl!

  2. Good night my friend. It's been awhile since I've stopped by so just spent that last little bit reading about all your sucesses. You are doing wonderful with your life style change. I am proud of you.
    Thank you for stopping by and chatting. Take care and have a blessed weekend.

  3. Seriously looking at the serving size is so important. It will get you every single time. Absolutely insane. Sugar is my downfall as well. I am completely addicted and really need to lay off it or i`ll never fit into any cutesy fall clothing.

    xo hope you are having a fab weekend.


Show me some love!! Or kick my butt!!
