Bad Strawberries! tsk tsk, go sit in a corner!

12 Apr

Oh the sadness of fruit gone bad – not visible bad so you know just from looking to throw it out but  the you pop it in your mouth and chew and are immediately disgusted by the gross taste that is now covering your poor innocent taste buds – oh the inhumanity! That was me with my afternoon snack of strawberries today – lemme tell you, most disturbing taste evah! It was like overly sweet yet sour and reminded me a bit of wine, not yummy wine, but wine…what’s with that?? *shudder*

So yeah, was lacking in my snack and really, after that train wreck of a tasting I didn’t want anything else in my mouth for a while – I think my tastebuds were banding together to stage a coup (I swear I felt picket signs being raised on my tongue) but I soothed them with tea – ah the wonders of tea! 🙂

Today I ate:

1 apple = 1 point

1 pear = 1 point

1 banana = 1 point

1 Activia yogurt = 2 points

2 pieces Bodywise bread = 1 point

2 cheese slices = 2 points

2 slices turkey meat = 0 points

baby spinach = 0 points

1 tbls light miracle whip = 0 points

1 tsp mustard = 0 points

1 stuffed potato from M&M’s = 3 points

1 tbls light sour cream = 0 points

1 blueberry toaster strudel = 4 points

1 Eat More choc bar = 6 points

Total points eaten = 21

Alright, fine, I shouldn’t have eaten the chocolate bar, I could have easily not screwed up my points and gone over by getting any number of healthy snacks that are in my kitchen but well…the chocolate bar was closer…lame, sigh, I know…I’ll do better tomorrow!

You may be wondering about that toaster strudel – wellllll, I bought them on sale 2 weekends ago, one box was $2! One toaster strudel is 4 points (same as a pop tart, fyi) and what can I say, the marketing got to me. Lately where I live there has been a crazy increase of toaster strudel ads on tv – when I was in junior high (grades 7-9) mom would sometimes buy them and I loooooved them. Everytime I saw an ad I thought about how I used to eat them and not worry about my weight and how I just enjoyed them and for some delusional reason I seemed to think I could get them now and eat them and not worry about the calories…stupid I know. *flared nostril face* Now I have a box of frickin toaster strudel (minus 1) in my freezer and it’s gonna take me for ever to finish them cause I’ll hafta eat them so sporadically, arg!

Oh, another fyi, they don’t toast all the way through, as soon as I started eating it I remembered this problem from all those years ago. lol. Part of it will be uber hot, part of it a perfect temp and part of it still cold…er…what’s with that?? So, shrug, next time I pop one of those suckers in the toaster I will stand nearby and flip it around mid toasting…maybe that will help…oh yeah, and another thing, it tasted really good…long as you like processed sugary goodness – which I sooo do! lol. 😛
