BrandyRelaxing's Journal, 17 May 2011

So the WORST thing happened to me yesterday!

I was at a committee meeting and our Chair gave out Chocolates (okay, that's not the bad part, but wait). So it's chocolate, I LOVE chocolate! So when I got home, and still had about 2 more hours of work to do before I could go to bed, I thought I deserved some... one serving was 180 calories (and 3 chocolates), I could do that.

Well... OMG. I tasted one, it was supposed to be a mousse, it was HARD. I thought, that's weird, and tried another one... each one tasted odd. So I went through about 5-6 and then threw the box of chocolates in the GARBAGE! The expiry date was good, but she may have left them in her car because it looked like one had melted a bit, so if it was a melt then freeze thing (as are temperatures here in Ontario sometimes), that would explain it.

So after eating/trying that many, it's at least 200 calories, none of which I enjoyed and NOW I want chocolate that tastes good!

At any rate, on to my day's work... hoping to workout tonight!

Happy Tuesday everyone!

OOO that sucks when you decide to have something and it tastes crappy! In university I used to work at 7-11 (very brief time). I LOVED the nachos with swamp load of cheese. When I first moved into my apartment many years later in the town that I am in now, I decided I was going to get some after spending all day unpacking, I got my nachos poured that yummy goodness all over it, and walked home. I was all set and took my first bite...they tasted like plastic!!! When I thought about it, the containers that they are in were placed in front of the hot dog warmer, and I am thinking that is what made them taste HORRIBLE...I have not tried 7-11 nachos since. I was SO disappointed. I totally understand that feeling, it feels like you were jipped. Hope today was a good one for you!

Brandy - maybe it was a good thing - bet you'll think twice before eating candy again.

AT least you threw out the candy.. I would have eaten it all even if I didn't enjoy it! haha

When things like this happen to me I take it as a sign that I wasn't meant to eat it anyway haha!! Sometimes I'll spill a bag of m&m's or a newly opened beer on the carpet. I realize that I'm just incredibly clumsy, but sometimes I look skyward and say "Ok God, I get your point..." and I consider it a blessing in disguise. :)

Crappy chocolate is always a disappointment. I would suggest going and buying a small amount (single serving if you can) of good quality dark chocolate enjoy it and move one... it usually fixes my messes!

Well I survived the day without Chocolate... even despite finding that the client I was working at had a vending machine with a TON of chocolate bars in it!

Bad chocolate is terribly disappointing, and that many calories makes it worse. I really feel for you.

LOL Brandy, maybe you just don't have a taste for chocolate any longer.

LOL... Heather, I can guarantee one bad bit of chocolate wouldn't turn me off it.... although, wouldn't that be amazing?!
