As a treat today I had a 180 calorie 1/2 c. scoop of vanilla ice cream. (I measured it and everything!)
I then planned to sprinkle it with some Godiva hot chocolate powder... (about a tablespoon) but the sprinkle turned into about 1/2 c. as it fell out in a lump from the canister into my bowl!
A serving of the cocoa is 130 calories per 3 tablespoons. So one tablespoon would have been about 45 calories. But I ended up with about 9 tablespoons, so 390 calories!
So did I dump out my bowl and start over? Nope. I ate it all. Counted all the calories. But now I think, "Why did I do that?"
Because I did not want to "waste" the food I ended up with 345 more calories.
So my treat turned into a guilt-trip, then into a blog post.
On a happy note, I did return from Texas the same weight as when I left, and since I am counting my calories, I can tweak the rest of the day to deal with this snack debacle.
