Why is is that weekends seem to pose the most problems for dieters and problem nibblers? I am actually doing well today, but it is a struggle. I fixed Confetti Chili from the Ellie Krieger cookbook, and it is simmering right now. I smells great. Needless to say, I am ready to dig in right now, but dinner is 1 1/2 hrs. away. I have also determined that the 100 calorie snack packs were invented by the devil. Great idea gone sadly awry. When I want a sweet snack (or a Cheeto) the 100 calorie pack sounds like the perfect solution, doesn't it? Well, one pack just seems to whet my appetite for more. I resist the temptation, but feel deprived. Pepper strips and carrots just don't have the same appeal, unfortunately.
I remain hopeful that I'll be able to finish out the day without cheating. Perhaps going to bed at 7:30 will help. :)
