As I was finishing up working yesterday my mom calls me and says "How much do you love me?" Hmm I resisted the urge to scream........haha j/k I asked her what she wanted. She was begging for a coffee cake. So instead of arguing with her or having to deal with her pouting later I said I would get it before I come home.
As I brought it home I was determined not to partake of this devil in disguise. I set it on the counter and went to the computer and busied myself on Facebook. I heard my mom come out of her room and open package. She demolished about a 1/3.
I started dinner a bit later, placing the remains on bar counter. We ate dinner and my son had a bit and my husband had a bit and then there was about 2 servings left (granted box said this box held 8 servings....lol) I asked who was going to have the last of it and my mom said give it to her. I put it on her plate and then decided to look at box and see how many calories it contained. I did some figuring and told her that she was having about 800 calories. She didnt finish her piece and my son gladly took it from her. Actually, I handed it to him but not before I took one tiny piece and ate it. Yup I ATE IT. I looked at my husband and said "wow, that didn't even taste good". He agreed with me. For a split second I wished I was bulimic so I could barf up what I just ate, but I know that was wrong to think. But seriously, that was the biggest wasted bite of food I have had in a long time.
So, I was seriously very happy with myself to not have dug into that box the minute it reached my kitchen. That is a huge victory for me people!
I am not being deprived though. I have a secret weapon. I purchased some more Atkins bars today and they are so good. Its like eating a candy bar. They are a bit pricey so I got some coupons online and so that helps.
