Who You Gonna Call?

It's been a good week. Did my exercising, I'm down a half pound but--know what? It could have been much better. Why you ask? Well, I've had a few nights where for some reason I couldn't stop eating. I haven't done that in a long time and I've just been trying to figure out why it happened 2 nights last week. It may be hormones (next week, yippee for girls!) but I think it was boredom more than anything. It was hot,humid and I felt like doing nothing! Except eat far too much!

Now, I usually can have an ice cream treat or something sweet and be satisfied. It's just mind over matter, I KNOW THAT! But Thursday, one Reese's pb ice cream bar was followed by some tortilla chips (with flax, yeah, that makes a difference!) and dip (have you ever had the asiago with artichoke or is that just here in Canada?) then another ice cream bar. All the time I knew this was crazy! but did it anyway. A similar thing happened Saturday night.

What do you do when things get a bit crazy? Katschi threw her ice cream bars out (I have a brother so no need for that). I think that I have to forcefully remind myself that I don't NEED 2 bars and one is sufficient. I have learned not to buy something with a large quantity just because it's on special so that is something!

Getting rid of unwanted food reminded me of a hilarious episode of "Seinfeld" (one of THE funniest shows ever!) Elaine opened up a muffin shop that only sold the tops (the best part of course!) but, what to do with the stumps? Call in The Cleaner! Enjoy the clip, it's short.

Hi-larious! That's EXACTLY who I needed!
Hey, I love the new decorating you've been doing around here. Looks fab.
I baked your Blueberry Oat Muffins today...come see the pic. I haven't eaten one yet but they look & SMELL so good!

Thanks! I wanted something different to look at and noticed the link on another blog--think they are called "cutest blog".

They have some pretty ones but I liked this because of the colours and it wasn't too busy.

Great clip! My favorite episode is still The Master of My Domain. :-)

I wonder where those fits of eating come from? I haven’t had one in a few weeks now, but they do kind of hit out of the blue, don’t they? I guess the trick is to stop it at one evening, so it doesn’t go on the next day and the next and the next...

I would love to know where they come from but I'll obviously have to deal better with them. I usually don't do it that often but...?

That's a great episode but I'd hate to choose a favourite--there are just too many (except the last year which was just reaching for jokes)

I too seem to be afflicted with the cant-stop-eatings lately. It's frustrating, isn't it!? I hope that you are able to regroup soon. I am working on it myself.

Irish Mom said...

Too funny!! No way i could pick a favorite either, they are all classic in their own right!!

Cammy said...

Perfect clip! I love 'The Master of My Doman' or the one I always think of as the Vandalay Industries! episode. :)

I've been having Nibbly Days, too. The only thing that saves me is I don't have any high-calorie food in the house. So my nibbles were a peach, a tomato, a sugar free fudge bar, a sugar free pudding and a piece of lowfat cheese. :)
I do have some Hershey's Chocolate Stix in the cupboard, but the box doesn't get opened until Nibbly Days are past.

I am on a laughing cow chees and crackers nibbly month! I can't just eat 1 or 2 wedges of cheese. I figure though it's better than donoughts!!!

i actually keep my hands busy in the evening by cross-stitch...harder to stuff food in my mouth with a needle in my hand. :)

seinfeld? I miss ye.

and your flax remark made me smile---I SO cling to those 'excuses' many a time...

That bit made my day.

I, too, am another of the can't-stop-eating club. Luckily enough I can usually control it, but come that TOM...well, we all know how that goes.

Love the new blog layout. :o)

Thinking Thin said...

I love the new look :).

You need to come back to my blog and see the comment Lynn posted in regards to your earlier comment :P

The "Gotta Eat" bug hit me too a little while back. I already learned while it cheaper to buy in bulk, I can't trust myself to behave! Thanks for the clip! I love muffin tops too!

Maggie Ann said...

Hi Manuela, That was a fun clip...and your healthy outlook is great. Just what I need... I've had way to many pieces of cake this week. Thanks for coming by and visiting me at knitting kat and leaving me a comment. A comment that talked to me..I appreciate that so much! =)

I love Reeses!

Nicole said...

Writing about it will probably help a lot. No one is "perfect" all the time. It's the regular practice of making good choices that ultimately leads to success. Have a lovely week!

How funny! i need a CLEANER for those days when i get started on chips and queso sauce. i love stopping by here. Always a great time!

PEA said...

LOL I so remember that episode! hehe I never missed a Seinfeld episode and to this day love watching the reruns. You know, every once in a while I do the same thing you did, eating one thing after another and not being able to stop all evening! Ugh! I find when I'm bored, I eat...best to keep busy and not have time to eat! lol The problem is, even when I'm at the computer, I tend to be munching on something. I need THE CLEANER!!!! lol xoxo

We are moving mid August and I told my boyfriend that we are cleaning out the pantry and not taking junk with us!!! I am actually really excited about it!!!
