Calories Don't Count When.....

~~ Birthdays. There is something just not right about penalizing a person as they age. :) So whether you're celebrating your own or someone else's birthday.... go ahead! Live it up! That cake, ice cream, seven course fancy-schmancy dinner.... none of it counts!

~~When someone else has bought the food. If you aren't directly responsible for providing it, you can not be held responsible for the caloric intake.

~~Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Again, since these holidays are celebrations (well, mostly. Halloween is just there for the candy!) any calories consumed don't really exist outside of that day.

~~When you're alone. Its kinda like that "tree falling in the forest does it make a sound" conundrum. If no one is there to witness it, it didn't really happen.

~~Pajama Parties/Girls Night Out. These are just a given, folks. There should be no explanation needed.

~~When you're on vacation. Its VACATION. 'Nuff said.

~~When its M&M's. C'mon..... that should be a gimme. :)

Any other creative situations where calories don't count? Let me know... I'm always looking for more ways to fudge a calorie or two... or several!

Really, I've just gotten quite good at justification! :) But thanks!
