BULK BARN = DEVIL

It's a dreadful rainy day here today and we are expecting rain until Monday! Yuck! Where is the sunshine and hot weather? I need to break away from sweaters and shoes but it's hard to do when a city only 1 hour away from your home is getting 15-20 cm of SNOW today!!! YUCK! yuck yuck yuck!! The great thing about it though is that my Mom came into town last night! I haven't seen her for 6 months so it was great to reconnect again, it's awful living so far away from your parents, especially your mother.


I learned a valuable lesson last night. The Bulk Barn is every dieter's worst enemy. Scott, Mom and I popped in last night to pick up some almonds and a few spices. Well as soon as you walk into the joint, your surrounded by candy and chocolate and everything else that is no good for you. As soon as I walked in, I smelled chocolate. It's been 17 days since I've tasted chocolate and I must say, it's the one thing I miss the most! I love chocolate, any kind of chocolate. So I tried to stay focused and just go to the nut isle and the spice isle but I found myself wandering over to the candy isle just staring (and drooling) over macaroons, slowpokes, dark chocolate, light chocolate, broken chocolate bars. It was hell. Simple as that. That was the hardest 10 mins I have had since I have been on this new meal plan. I am lucky that both my Mom and hubby were there to keep me from binging. If I had been alone........well I might have just had ONE handful, but we all know what one handful turns into....1 day of "oh what the hell, I have been doing so good, I deserve a day off"...then it turns into 2 days, then a week. I'm proud of myself for doing good but I miss chocolate!! I know EXACTLY what I will be using my flex points on for my first week back on WW...CHOCOLATE! That is one great thing about WW, you don't get these crazy cravings....so far they haven't been 2 bad, I have basically just had 2 bad days but the ever dropping number on the scale helps me to get over them. My next WI is on Saturday so I am anxious to see how it goes!
Hope everyone is having a happy hump day!!

  1. I'm sorry you had such a horrible time at the Bulk Barn.. I have to say, I'm not really a fan of the place. I find that a lot of their stuff (including chocolate and candy) is stale.. if you're going to eat chocolate get the good stuff!!

    (However, I"m not a huge chocolate fan in the first place.. soo... )

    Good for you though for keeping yourself from diving into the bins! (So not good for business.)

  2. You did great at the Bulk Barn Carolyn. You actually helped me keep on track for my diet. If you had of caved, I would have been going home with a bag full of Reeses Pieces and Broken O'Henry Bars.

    Your Will power is phenominal. Keep it up.

    Love you

    Hubby.

  3. Ohhh bulk bins are the devil.

    Your right about WW's and cravings, I think that's why I like it so much. I can eat anything I want so long as I count the points, thats why I love it!

    Good Luck with your WI on Saturday!
