I can resist temptation, I can, I can, I can

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.

This is the beloved cake I came home with.  I will have you know that I used to love these when I was younger.  I haven't had one in years.

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  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.

Welcome, to my new followers.  I am honored that you are willing to spend your time listening to me blab.  Please leave me comments, I love them all.


  1. my hubby and I got married in a courthouse and had no money for anything and our "wedding cake" was one of those. It was just the 2 of us and thats how we celebrated. seeing those always makes me smile :)

  2. *DROOLLLL* I'm so proud of you for resisting, it's amazing how much our taste buds change, and how quickly! :)

  3. I love the adkins bars in fact I just had the PB cups for my friday afternoon, they have cake in the office over, snack. They are great and a weapon against not so yummy but mentally great tasting food. Great job!

  4. I find the same thing. All those things I used to demolish just don't taste the same and are not really worth it. Except chocolate. But everything else. Meh.
