I think I'm going crazy in the head
I'm counting calories lately. I got home late tonight, wanted an easy meal, and pulled out one of those japanese noodle kits. The box says it's 320 calories per serving. There are 3 servings in the box.
I know very well that I can eat 3 servings of noodles. 960 calories! Holy crap!
So I pulled out approximately 1/3 of the noodles, and cooked only that much.
Brilliant, I'm brilliant!
Only I forgot about my brilliancy.
I had morphed into Rainman, reciting "960 calories, definitely 960 calories. K-mart sucks."
I worried so much that when the noodles were prepared, I split out 1/3 of them for my serving.
Sadly, again thinking that I was brilliant.
I threw the rest away, so as not to even be tempted by them.
"960 calories for one meal my ass! Take THAT!" I yelled, triumphantly, as I arranged sliced cucumbers, prettily, around my noodles.
And I walked around mumbling to myself after dinner, "THAT was one serving of noodles? No WONDER I've put on weight! I'm a glutton! I'm disgusting! Next they'll tell me a serving of meat should be the size of a deck of cards..."
And then, of course, when I did the dishes, I found the remaining 2 servings of dry noodles sitting on the counter. I only ate 1/3 of 1/3 of the box! Yayyyy!
