They are 35 calories each, very sweet, and SEEDLESS, which is my favorite part. I eat 2 or 3 at a time, and with 3 of them being 105 calories, it beats the hell out of those little 100 calorie snack bags of sugary crap. There are a couple of different brands out there, but Lyn and I both love the California Cutie brand. A bag of them is $4.00 at Walmart. You have to hurry though....Lyn says they're only around through February and you do NOT want to miss out on these little jewels of juiciness!!
I almost had a bad day with the calories today....almost. I was at 1470 calories before dinner and before I hit the gym at 6pm. I worked out with Billie, we did 30 minutes on the elliptical which resulted in 2 miles, and then worked out on all of the weight machines. We got done at 7:15pm and on my way home I had an insane craving for Taco Bell. This is weird for me because I've never been a huge fan of this place. But I was having fierce cravings for chicken taquitos and I saw a commercial for some kind of cheesy melty roll-up thing. But I held strong!! I drove right past it and got home and grabbed a clementine!! Now I'm at 1505 cals and I'm fixing to have 2 c. of decaf coffee w/ sugar-free creamer. 1 tbsp in each cup will put me at 1535 cals for the day and I'm perfectly happy with that.
A big thank you to MB at Why The Weight? I read a couple of her posts today and found out she sent a letter to Santa asking for things for her blog friends, and I was included. She asked that I get an extension and a great job. Well Santa must have got the letter, because I got the extension! It's supposed to last for 10 more weeks. From my experience with the Dept of Labor, I've learned that this can change on any given week with absolutely no prior notice, so we'll see what happens. But for this week, for today, I'm able to pay my bills. Hooray!!
Also, thanks to Amy at "The Not So Secret Life...". She gave me an award a few days ago that I've previously received, so it's already listed on my sidebar. It's the Superior Scribbler Award. I was sure to tell Amy that I totally didn't deserve it, lol, but thanked her for her kind heart in thinking I did.
Great workout at the gym and the calories are looking good. It's been a good day. Now if I can just string a month of those good days together, I'll feel like I'm totally back in the game. :)
