Yesterday was full of sweets.
In the short-term, I really didn't lose control, or splurge, the way I might have in the past. I lost control only a little.
It started when, at work, people bring in all these sweets. Seriously, if they brought in chips and dips or chili or whatever else I would be ok, but - I had to sample the pound cake (1 square inch) and 1 of each of the two flavors of chocolate chip cookie (they were small but chewy - 1 square inch each) and then - !! - someone brought in fudge - choclate fudge and peanut butter fudge. I had one of each and then I wound up having 3 or 4 pieces of the peanut butter fudge just because it was so exotic to me - I have peanut butter fudge about once every 10 years. 1 square inch each.
Then, after midnight, I went out to buy 50% off Valentine's candy. 1 Russell Stove strawberry heart was rich enough to satisfy me, but I then had 2 Bailey's Irish Cream chocolates and about 8 Russell Stover chocolates. All told my calorie intake for yesterday was nearly 3000. Still, I weigh less today, probably due to my menses. So exciting!
I guess the point of this blog was supposed to be that all last night I looked at those chocolates like I was supposed to be greedy for them, but I wasn't. Probably due to the fudge earlier in the day, but also possibly due to a change in what my system is used to, it was all too easy to not reach out for another chocolate. (It was almost disappointing!)
