First Failure

Well, day two and already we’ve hit a failure point. I went apeshit on the Chocolate Resien and Mint Chocolate Cups in my file cabinet I bought before I decided to try to lose weight again. Okay, I’ve binged. Expect failure, but keep trying. Now that the devil items are mostly gone, I just have to not buy them again. Or if I do buy them, get them in small portions, one type at a kind so I am less likely to go on a porkfest.

Why did I binge? I’m not really sure. I think it was partly because I couldn’t find a healthy substitute within a short amount of time. I think I’ll have to start grocery shopping more and keep my own stock of healthy foods in the garage fridge.

Perhaps not the best question to ask on a weight loss blog, buuuuuut…

What are mint chocolate cups and where do I get them?

I guess it’s not a terrible question. So many times in the past I have failed by being such a diet stickler that I would do a complete 180 on my new “super healthy” life the second a Hershey’s kiss passed my lips. So we’ll frame it like that. ;)

Heh! That’s okay. Picture Reese’s mini peanut butter cups but filled with minty cream instead of peanut butter. They’re basically like Andes mints, just in a different shape and with maybe more mint. They were sold at Meijer grocery stores, but I think they’re just a Midwest chain, so you might be out of luck. Sorry! I only ever saw Meijer branded packages of the things, never a national brand.
