Forgive Me Bloggers...For I Have Sinned

I ate a simply delicious Dairy Queen Reece's Peanut Butter Cup blizzard today...all 760 calories of it. OMG, that is a lot of calories. So many in fact, that I am planning on skipping supper tonight to make up for it. That puts my calories for the day at about 1600. Not bad considering such a fall from grace. Wow, the old me would have had that and full meals for the rest of the day. I don't think I really realized how many calories I ate in a day as my fat self, I would suppose 2500-3000 a day? Maybe more?

I gotta tell you though, the first few bites were wonderful. I couldn't shovel them in fast enough. But honestly by the bottom of the cup I was actually feeling a little sickly from sugar shock. I just had to let myself have this one craving, and now I need to get back on the wagon. I did some shoveling this afternoon for a little exercise. I may also bust out my Leslie Sansone Walk Away the Pounds DVD tonight to mix things up a bit. Life goes on!


  1. no guilt necessary-thankfully after a while i couldn't physically eat a whole one :) gotta love the good fills.

    Oddly A little bit (1/2 cup) of plain old ice cream like Haagen dazs five tastes better than DQ...I don't understand it but am happy about it.

  2. I don't think that the odd treat does any harm, glad that you enjoyed it.

  3. Don't feel guilty-- it was a treat, not an everyday occurrence.

    I myself ate about half of a snack-size McFlurry from McDonald's yesterday and it was worth it :)

  4. The trick is not to feel guilty and move on, like you are doing. The second trick is to throw it away as soon as you start to feel sick. Better to waste a little ice cream than to eat calories you really don't want.
