Lost it this week... zone schmone....

I lost it this week.

First it was my a cheatnight on Halloween - had about 6-7 pieces of pizza.

I denied the Halloween Candy all night.

Then the next day I couldn't help it, had about 10 mini chocolate bars (the little individual ones)

Then it kept snowballing....
more mini halloween candy... Then I was grocery shopping and saw the blowout on leftover halloween candy....

25 peanut butter cup bag for .44 CENTS! I couldn't avoid. SO I bought a bag and ate about 3 per day...

Last night I even had Bryers All Natural topped with Peanut Butter Cups.

Anyways...
Just my confession. Time to get back to business.

LOL, don't worry, happens to all of us! But great example of how high GI carbs cause sugar spike, then low, then MORE sugar/carb cravings. Just keeps the whole mess rolling...

I cant go back to the grocery store because
25 reases peanut butter cups for .44 cents is insanity.

I just cant pass up a deal like that no matter how zone strict I'm trying to be.

They also had 45 packs on individual smarties for $1.25.

Sick.,


My wife was watching my eat like a nut this week.
2.5 months extremely STRICT and then after halloween just went bonkers.

I should add, every other meal was on track for the day :-)

The breakdowns occured after dinner so I just avoided a night snack.

Ugh, if I eat candy now I feel like crap. And I don't exactly eat the strictest zone (read: a big bowl of breyers every night).

Re: Lost it this week... zone schmone....

On Halloween I ate a buttload of reese's PB Cups and Reese's Sticks (which are phenominal) and went into this real weird 'coma' type of nap feeling. I binge every once and a while on pizza and stuff but I hadn't really gone near chocolate/candy type of stuff so I'm not sure why it had such a weird effect on me...I could've fallen asleep for the night...had to force myself to stay awake.

An hour prior I ate a bunch of chinese food...with brown rice though.

I was back to normal the next day...

Re: Lost it this week... zone schmone....

Please stop talking about Reese's, seriously. They are my favorite and my wonderful kids keep offering me some thinking they are being nice!

Noah- I havent had candy in close to 6 months! I was sitting there halloween night holding my bowl of candy and I started salivating from the smell of these wrapped candies....so my week looked a lot like yours. I am back on track now, but not if people keep talking about Reese's!!!

You need to try a Reese's stick.

It's like what the offspring would be if a Kit-Kat mated with a Peanut Butter cup...
