Laugh all you want. But I had to do it. I’m a BIG fan of those 100 calorie packages. It’s just the right amount, and they’re so outrageously priced that one every couple of days works out just right. Of course, it can’t be just ANY flavor – I love the wheat crackers, and they seem to fill me up.
But they’re hard to find around here. I admit that I am helpless with a full box of crackers, or a bag of chips or pretzels. Why are they stronger than I am? They’re just flavored flour, for crying out loud! When did they get so much control???!!!
But I digress. On Saturday – yesterday – I bought a small bag of chips. “Only” three servings. I ate them. So, something had to change.
And still no wheat crackers at the store today.
So, I bit the bullet. Yes, folks, I bought the box. And then immediately went to the food wrap aisle to pick up little sealing plastic bags. I didn’t want to risk being out of them.
After all the groceries were put away, I opened the package of crackers, took out a pencil and paper AND CALCULATED THE CALORIE COUNT! And determined just how many crackers I could have for 100 calories. There are now about 12 little baggies of 100 calories each, and mirabilis dictu, I didn’t taste a single one!
Aren’t you proud of me? I sure am! And quite surprised.
The entire time I was packing them up, I was saying things like: You can enjoy them later in the week. Don’t shove these in your mouth right now. and on and on.
But in the middle of this was a promise: If you can get through this, you can have a little dessert at dinner tonight, because it’s my birthday!
Hope you all had a good weekend.
