There was high potential for a calorie catastrophe this weekend. I was faced with many evil goodies sent direct from Greedy Island with the mission to undo all the efforts of my fat melting exercises.
I took these pictures with the strong urge to nosh until not a crumb remained. This food was real close; only one bite away, but I didn't eat it. I'm guessing I saved myself at least 1,500 calories in one weekend just by saying "no".
Reverse Food Journaling: What I Didn't Eat
Peanut Butter M&M's. I almost bought what looked like a 3-pound bag at the BJ's Wholesale Club. Half the bag would be gone by now. Grubbing would have commenced before I even left the store parking lot, but I didn't buy it. I didn't eat it.
Coffee Shop Lemon Cake. It's soft. It's moist. It's got icing on it. My teen begged, so I bought it. In times past I would have ate two of these delectable slices all by my lonesome. But while he chowed at the mall water fountain, I walked away and got that lemon cake out of my sight. I didn't eat it.
Bakery Fresh Blueberry Muffin. I bought this with uber-evil intentions, but then remembered all the fat melting work I did this weekend that made me sweaty and proud. Consuming this muffin would have made my exercising efforts a real waste of time, so I let somebody else eat the muffin. I didn't eat it.
Victory is mine! Muwahahahaha!
So tell me, what junk food crap did YOU say "no" to this weekend?
