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…
