View Full Version : *&$! easter*%$# eggs !!

I hid the easter eggs from the kids.. that was okay.. until Sara (age 7) found them today.. so we all had some of those nasty &%!@# easter eggs! I ate 6 of them before I came to my senses! 220 calories.. crap!

I did log them rather then pretend it didn't happen - (which I do too often :nono: )

04-04-2007, 02:01 PM
Oooh! I'm sorry, Dana!

Wait... maybe I'm crazy but are you talking that you hid real eggs? Or candy ones in a closet or something to save for Easter? :lol: I'm so confused!

04-04-2007, 02:47 PM
Dana, it is ok. Move away from the eggs!!
Glad you caught yourself and can move forward for the day. Just don't let it get you down! Otherwise you might want to go right back to them.

04-04-2007, 02:55 PM
Yeah were these real eggs or chocolate or something? I was thinking eggs are good although I don't know if I could eat 6 in a sitting plus that'd be more than 220 calories.

04-04-2007, 03:20 PM
these are the little chocolate foil wrapped eggs. Trust me.. the foil slowed me down!

04-04-2007, 03:26 PM
Charbar, I am so lucky to not have kids around. I adore those things and just don't dare buy any to give away to the grandbabies The little pastel coloured Cadbury ones are another weakness but look so pretty in a bowl on the table as an Easter decoration. Yeah! Right!

04-04-2007, 03:34 PM
I KNOW!!! I'm hiding in my classroom over the lunch hour in order that I avoid student services. The sec. in there has a HUGE dish of them all shiny and colorful and calling my name!! Dangit!! It was funny yesterday though!! I saw one down the hallway on the floor and I kept thinking "Well if its still wrapped it's okay to eat.":rofl:
I didn't but I'm not sure if that was going against my natural urge to fit into society by acting normally or not. :rofl:
It's egg-ravating don't you think?

04-04-2007, 06:56 PM
Just a little detour! At least you did the right thing and didn't let it derail you. Just remind yourself they aren't worth going back to again! :D

04-04-2007, 10:23 PM
220 calories in the grand scheme of things isn't so bad. For me, if I had those little buggers around, I can imagine I could eat WAY MORE than that, especially if they were cadbury eggs. I love those things. Well anyways, yay for you for taking responsibility and logging them into your Fitday so that you can get back to normal for the rest of the day!

I was in a Walgreen's not more than 20 minutes ago, and the Cadbury egg's were calling my name, even though I don't even like the darn things. Then I spotted pectin jelly eggs (the really soft jelly beans, like jelly belly's only softer), now those are my weakness. I'm still not sure how I got out of the store without a bag following me home. I guess I was already feeling a bit overindulged in that hubby and I had gone out for Thai food tonight and I had a noodle dish (drunken noodles). I did only eat about half my portion (which is a record for me, the last time we were there I had pad thai and not only finished it, but complained that the portion was a bit skimpy - which it was NOT).

Next time though I think I will have one of their dinner salads, or meal soups.

Has anyone noticed that my posts tend to start on topic and then veer wildly. Sorry about that!

04-05-2007, 09:36 AM
That's what makes them unique and interesting, Colleen!
So many great thoughts and so little time to share them!

04-05-2007, 09:41 AM
ugh, I know exactly what you mean! We must have been on the same wavelength yesterday because I did the same thing! I bought stuff at WalMart for easter and opened the bag to get at those little caramel eggs after I allowed myself to have one of the big cream eggs. I was going to allow myself just one and that was supposed to be it. Chocolate eggs are just like potato chips, you can't have just one! I should have known better and not even eaten that first one. Oh well, today they are going into the plastic eggs for the egg hunt and believe you me I won't touch them because it makes me feel sick to think how much I binged on those stupid things yesterday.

04-05-2007, 10:03 AM
I can empathize! No kids in the house, but I gave up all sugar and sugar substitutes for Lent, so I'm going to do my best not to absolutely BINGE on chocolate (oh chocolate and skinny cow ice cream sammiches, my old friends, how I've missed you these past 6 weeks!!!!). It's tradition for my mother to give us this HUGE basket of candy, which I have begged and pleaded with her to please NOT do this year. We settled for a small peanut butter meltaway egg because it's a tradition from when I was a little girl.

BUT -- Easter this weekend, then my birthday the next weekend.

This could get ugly. I hope to embody your ability to walk away these next two weeks. =)

Thanks Diane, That's so sweet. My mind does tend to work a little faster than my fingers (or mouth). Hubby gets a little nuts, when go off on a tangent in a conversation, especially since occasionally I get ahead of myself to the point he will say "Honey, I cannot hear your inner dialog, you're going to have to fill in the gaps and tell me what the heck you are talking about."

04-05-2007, 12:05 PM
Yikes I did it again. I of course meant when I go off on a tangent. You know the jokes where someone will say "Oops, did I say that out loud," when they say something rude or stupid, I guess I should say "Oops, didn't I...?"

04-05-2007, 12:21 PM
Ha! That's funny.
I can relate to that. Sometimes my husband just gives me this look that he's totally checked out of the conversation because I've left him way behind in my thoughts.
Sometimes I notice that, but I'm sure there are times that I don't and he just waits for it all to end!!

I was in a Walgreen's not more than 20 minutes ago, and the Cadbury egg's were calling my name, even though I don't even like the darn things.

I love those Cadbury eggs! I have to say that the last few Easters, I had our candy dish filled with those things constantly, from the moment they came out until the last bag was gone after Easter. I can happily say that this year, I have not bought a single bag. :)

04-05-2007, 01:12 PM
I told DH that I used to love cadbury eggs and I even thought about buying one a few weeks ago. Then I remembered what they were. Chocolate filled with ooey gooey sugar stuff. I like chocolate, if I want chocolate, I should just buy chocolate :)

04-05-2007, 01:18 PM
Gotta chime in here! Chocolate is one of my biggest triggers. Once I have ONE foil-wrapped Easter Egg, I am G-O-N-E! And YES! They DO really CALL YOUR NAME! Even when they are tied up in a bag in the upstairs bedroom, they call you. Even when you are all the way downstairs and can't even SEE THEM, they are calling you! They are like the sirens of the sea calling the sailors...only they aren't calling any sailors in MY HOUSE. They are calling me, and I bought them for my family BECAUSE...:?:

I don't think my family even LIKES those little foil-wrapped bundles of heaven! I have FOR YEARS positioned nice, cute little Easter candy dishes of them around the house. Soon the dishes are empty. Did my family eat all the little eggs ? NOOOOOO! IT was ME! I would eat them all!

This year the foil-wrapped mini-granades remain tied up in their bags from Wal-Mart. I am safe for awhile, but soon I will be preparing the Easter baskets for my family. It is then that I must run the gauntlet. It is then that I must OPEN THE BAGS of little foil-wrapped chocolate eggs. It is then that I will be in the most imminent danger! PRAY FOR ME!!!:bunny2:

Heading for the Listerine, Cheryl
(Because NOTHING tastes even remotely good after Listerine!)

I can get away with telling myself that I "don't like," cadbury eggs and other super sweet gooey stuff, because I don't like the cloying mouthroof stickingness unless I have a glass of milk to wash away each thick gooey bite. And since I don't really like milk, unless it's paired with something very sweet, I can convince myself that I "don't like" two things that I like very much together.

I know that doesn't make any sense, but I say if a mind game works, work it.

Got Buckley's cough syrup? Try a swig of THAT after each Cadbury egg! Maybe even the mental picture of it will dissuade you, it certainly works for me!

04-05-2007, 11:49 PM
Oops! Correction! I did not keep my candy dish full of the Cadbury Cream Eggs (you were all probably thinking, "Good gravy, girl!") but with the Cadbury Robin Eggs. They are my favorite. The bigger cream eggs are too sweet for me.

LakeGirl, how about ''''Good going, girl!" because that's what you should be saying to yourself!

And I took it you meant the Cadbury robin eggs, because we also have a stash, they're my girls' fave too, and they said they were going to buy eggs with their allowances if I didn't buy them. So I did; this way I can monitor their intake!

For what it's worth, I find the cream eggs too sweet, but those robin eggs go down very nicely. I use the "Buckley's chaser" image, whenever those eggs call to me too loudly! So far, it's worked....

Is that really me

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: And I thought I was the only one who did this!! Too funny! I will often catch my husband just looking at me w/a sly kind of look on his face, telling my 16 yr. old to just "wait, let her finish. It all makes sense in her head". Thanks for a great laugh!

Oh and those choc. easter eggs? My mom always called them choc. footballs. God knows they look like footballs but ma, it's Easter; how do you get footballs this time of year? I never knew until my kids were little that they were choc. eggs. How duh am I? Hmmm, maybe I'm listening to my "inner dialog" too much!!

And yes, there are bags of candy in our bedroom closet. I did open a bag of those robins eggs (the whoppers). Don't really like them but I could have more of them vs. the choc. footballs, er EGGS so I ate them instead. Just 8 or 9, not the whole bag.

My weekness is those little peanut butter cups in the spring color foil (or at Christmas - green and red, basically they change it up for each holiday). I love those suckers, love, love, love. I can polish off a bag no problem.
