note to self

6 mini bite-size Snickers, Milky Ways, and Butterfingers is about 300 calories.

This on a day that I'm struggling already with calories. I entered my day's calories into sparkpeople at the beginning of the day and realized that it was totalling over 2100 calories - not the 1700 or under I'm supposed to be at. I trimmed away some calories here and there to at least bring it under 2000. But then I ate those 6 minis. Silly person.

Now it's 11:30 and I've finished dinner and I'm still hungry, which would be fine if I were going to sleep (wish I were going to sleep!!), but I have to go get back to work! I've made some coffee and I think I might take a weight smart one-a-day - they have some appetite suppressant in them. Le sigh.

uch. I hate days when you want to gnaw the face off a hamster.
Hope tomorrow is lower calorie.

Awww sorry you have to go back to work. :(

I'm sure those candy bars won't hurt you- as long as you don't do that every day! Let yourself have a treat once in a while.

300 calories for basically a few bites? Thanks for the heads up.

I can't get into the mini's. I'd rather go for the real size one for 240 calories. I can't resist a bag of minis. It's safer for me to go for the big one.
