I have made the decision that I am not going to have ANY holiday candy today/tonight. I’m trying to not think about this. I’ve made seasonal candy a big part of my life and I cannot think of the last day I went without it.
Dear God, I sound like some kind of addict…I bet if I didn’t have candy for a week I’d lose 10 pounds from that alone.
“I’ll be fine…the third week in December is when the candy starts to lose it’s luster, then I won’t want it anymore…there’s a big gap between Christmas and Easter, so I’ll be safe for awhile.” Then the realization of Valentines Day came up…oh no…One who is addicted to chocolate is never really safe. How come I can’t be addicted to something like apples? What gives?
I had a friend tell me to buy “fresh” chocolate from “boutiques” in Manhattan, that if I was going to be indulging, I might as well indulge in the best. At this rate…I don’t need anymore addictions in my life that will contradict my exercise habits.
I’m growing tired. My head hurts. I’m in a bad mood. I’m attributing this to the fact that I’ve had no chocolate today. I am too lazy to get off of the couch to go buy some. I’m going to take advantage of this and take a nap…who knows…maybe I’ll even go to bed before midnight…stranger things have happened.
