Stupid Chips

I had a good plan for eating today. Basic stuff, leftovers, no problem.  Then my son came home with a prize he won. 

Chips. My arch enemy. 

They went on a spanish field trip and there was a raffle and he won a bag of tortilla chips with taco seasoning (think taco seasoned Doritos but rolled up rather than in triangles).  It was a hispanic brand so the kids were skeptical.  So I tried them.  They were good, not great. But I ate way too many.  About a portion and 1/2 for 200 calories.  So I ended up eating my dinner WITHOUT the tortillas since I had stupid, fatty, greasy chips instead of my healthy, filling, whole wheat tortillas.  Stupid.  Luckily my lunch was super filling so I wasn't really hungry or anything. Still stupid though. 

Today's Eats:

Bagel, egg beaters & Cheese - 175
Vitatop = 100
Chicken fajita = 250
Beef stew = 250
Stupid chips = 200
Turkey Broccoli slaw filling = 250

Total = 1225
Lots of water


  1. When my girls lived at home they were always bringing tempting stuff home. Just the other day they were here for a visit and brought bag of Oreos. I told them that junk was no longer allowed it the house. They are both grown and obese and they know better than to bring that kind of stuff here. Plus, I guess I'm just a mean mom too. :)

  2. I really hate wasting calories too. They are too precious when you are dieting! Are vitatops like $5 a box in your area too? I bought them once on clearance and liked them, but I just can't bring myself to pay $1 each for them.

  3. Well at least you counted them in. So, a score for you. Have a great weekend! Michele
