Goodbye, Chips and Salsa...

I should be blogging tonight about my fabulous vacation reward in the desert or about the delicious enchiladas I made the other night.

HOWEVER, I feel the need to make another confession....

I seriously can't be trusted when I'm sitting in front of a basket of chips and salsa.  Tragically, I decided to order a side of chips and salsa tonight with my salad that ended up to be enormous. 



I've described chips and salsa/queso/guac before as "crack" and mexican restaurants in general as a "crackhouse."   Like an addict, I told myself that I wouldn't eat it all, and I told myself that I just wanted a few bites.  BUT, it tasted so delicious, and I ate way too many chips.  Now I just feel horrible.

My question:  Do I have to just eliminate Mexican food from my diet completely??  When will I be able to be able to sit down at a Mexican restaurant and not be tempted to devour the whole basket of chips and salsa??

For now, I've eaten my last chips and salsa for a long time.  Good news is the most recent batch of chips and salsa was delicious and not an icky stale chip variety.  i also get to go to the gym in the morning now, and not for one of those lackluster, halfass workouts.

Goodbye, chips and salsa.... hello, elliptical machine.  Sigh...

This may sound a bit 'odd', but my last visit to Escalantes in Houston...and their white queso, I brought celery sticks...so, I was able to enjoy a bit of queso without the empty calories of the tortilla chips. It was quite yummy.

I also LOVE Mexican food..and find that eating a small apple before going, helps me to eat to enjoy and eat smaller portions than going hungry and eating huge portions

If you don't mind flat bread you could cut up a few strips and dip that into your salsa..:) You don't have to cut-out Mexican.. BEANS BEANS AND BEANS :)

So... this is going to sound crazy. BUT... it's really about the chips for me. I can eat salsa with a spoon, if I wanted to... and might have done this before (MAYBE).

I'm not into beans at all, so I just need calorie free/fat free chips, I suppose!
