Can you ever just have one tablespoon full?
Should I have backed away from the jar and it's delicious promises?
At 100 calories a tablespoon and half of that is fat, I dipped a banana in it at snack time at least 4 tablespoons worth but who's counting? I slathered that banana in hazelnut chocolatey goodness and devoured it. Easily 400 calories.. easily.
I was doing so well today too. Ate my standard breakfast (haven't gotten bored of it yet) and then had a turkey sandwich, carrot sticks w/ non fat ranch dip, and the greatest chip creation on the planet -- The PoPchip. Totally healthy for you (as chips go) and taste really good too (which is a plus).
And then 3:30 *cue horror music here*
I was like Jaws. I couldn't be stopped. Where was Roy Scheider when you need him? (you know, the guy from the Jaws movies -- the one that actually kills the shark. My attempt at being witty. Moving on.)
Now before my new healthy outlook on weight loss, I would have called it a day after a blunder like that and just stuffed my face with whatever I wanted while making empty promises to myself that I would start "for real" this time the next day. But, today I didn't. For dinner I had two shrimp soft tacos and that was it. I also worked out, did 150 crunches, 20 push ups (have I mentioned how much I hate those freaking things), and a lot of stretching.
Sometimes into every lifestyle change a little Nutella must fall. Savor it and move on.
