BaD Valentine: My Hump Day Haul

Not trying to steal from Jimmy Kutts with the title, but I bought sale candy yesterday for less than $5. 

Items included:

heart shaped Reese's candy

Chalk hearts (big bag)

Two small Russel Stovers with the orange and red cream filled ones I like (the bigger ones didn't have those flavors from what I saw).

$4.72 at Walgreens since everything was half off. 

I have instant regrets ... and agreed to buy two boxes of girl scout cookies from a colleague today when she advertised them on Facebook last night. 

So I guess that B Day workout from yesterday is meaningless now. 

Instant. Regret.

I'm kind of against candy and sugar in general right now, but, oh the temptation. It is strong.

Oh it hasn't helped my stress. I'm definitely thinking after this week no more beer or sweets for a while. The short time pleasure isn't worth the physical/mental drawbacks the next day at work.

I hear ya. I have a beer for lunch and I'm depressed as hell at work later on. I had to stop that. 

I still have a diet soda on the weekend and a chocolate bar that's 70% cacao. Apprently the sugar content is much lower on chocolate 70% cacao and higher. I don't like 80 or 90% cacao bars though. Too darn bitter. 70 is ok though.

I have been avoiding stores like the plague for that very reason. Im already not fully on my diet plan again just yet, I dont need to make matters worse by buying candy.

I'm diabetic, but I've let myself slip too much lately with sweets. Sugar really is a drug, and I have an actual addiction to Coke. When I go to the movies and they show that commercial of Coke getting poured over ice my mouth waters. It's really bad.

I've been drinking too much diet soda because buying a meal just seems easier and i feel like I'm getting cheated if i get water. I don't know why, i don't really enjoy those drinks that much ...

But yeah, sugar is actually comparable to cocaine in terms of intensity and regions of the brain that light up when you partake.

I missed out on clearance candy. Also those are good choices on candy, and those crazy Girl Scouts visited the house last week. The seller was talking up the shortbread cookie. Lot of respect for her trying to push them, but in the end I went with the Caramel deLites and Thin Mints.

Y'know, we agree on dinner items, but not on candy tastes it seems. I would have taken the shortbreads and closed the door if she started pushing caramel. lol
