Well ... it continues!
In the last THREE days let's see how many 40 packs of Timbits he has brought home:
Yes - THREE!
One box per day
Let's do the math on that:
3 boxes x 40 Timbits = 120 Timbits
1 Timbit = 50 to 90 calories
average of an assorted pack is 65 calories each
120 Timbits x 65 Calories each =
They don't look so innocent anymore, do they? Where, oh where does my family put these? Not to mention there is on average 2.9g of fat in EACH timbit .... 120 Timbits = 348g fat - GROSS!!! I feel nauseous now.
With all this temptation around I've done pretty good. I have had 6 Timbits total from these boxes, about 390 calories. While that will not kill me or 'ruin my diet', my husband is in serious danger.
He has been warned that if he brings home one more box of these little devils or ANYTHING junk food like within the next two weeks I will throw the item AND him into the fire! Though as I look back over those nutrition numbers I may be tempted to throw away any future Timbits, forever.
He was quite shocked to learn that these little suckers are about 50 calories each. I can't wait to tell him tonight that it's actually 65 calories on average, and how many calories & fat he has consumed just from these in the last few days.
Sometimes it takes a little bit of shock value to set them straight.
Today was my Belly Blast weigh in. I was down .4 of a pound, yippee. I'd like to be more excited, but it's hard to be because a couple of days ago I was down over a pound. Since my race and long run and the last two days I have been doing weights, so my weight is up. This is typical with this type of activity as I put extra stress on my muscles. I'm not gonna stress over it. The scale is going the right way and I'm happy AND I'm going to keep it moving that way. Plus, while I haven't done measurements yet (too early), my belly seems a bit flatter and my husband noticed it too. What more can I ask for!
Hope you're have a great AND 'Timbit Free' day!
