I've figured out why my jeans seem rather tight...

Have you ever heard of Entenmanns Little Bites? They have a bunch of different kinds of snacks, brownies, soft cookies and muffins. I LOVE the 100 calorie packs of Brownie bites. Granted there are only 5 teeny tiny little bite sized morsels in each pouch but they are soooo good and taste great with an Iced Green Tea Latte. And for only 100 calories, not bad for an occasional snack.

So a couple weeks ago, there's a new product on the shelves, Chocolate Chip Muffin Little Bites. Without thinking I grabbed 2 boxes because they were on sale (2 for $5) and every morning I have enjoyed my Muffin Bites for breakfast with my latte. And it's been heaven.

Since they were on the shelves next to the Brownie Bites, I just assumed they were also 100 calories, with 4 grams of fat and 15 grams of carbs. This morning as I sat here sipping and chewing I happened to look at the nutritional information on the bag.

Most mornings I just have a latte and nothing else so for the last 2 weeks I have been adding 11 grams of fat, 29 extra carbs and 220 calories every single day. I'm somewhat relieved to know that's what has caused my jeans to fit a little more snug than usual. No more muffin bites for me. And damn, were they good.

I may just have to invest in that Hawaii Chair after all.

I have found that looking at the nutritional figures fail to indicate amount of guilt for indulgence. That's why I haven't looked at the chocolate covered almonds I picked up yesterday. Ignorance is bliss, even if it means a "muffin top!"

In the case of tiny friend Laura, it would be "mini-muffin top".
