It's time to confess ...

Saturday, March 21, 2009

i love chocolate. i need to admit and realize it's a problem. if i have one little piece, i eat the whole enchilada ... and then i'm on the hunt for more. when i'm happy, i celebrate with chocolate. when i'm lonely, stressed or upset, i medicate with chocolate. it's my "go-to" drug. i justify it by saying that i'll just cut back on calories here and there, or increase my cardio minutes. but we all know that junk in ... equals junk out. and i've got too much junk in my trunk!

i'm positive it's affecting my weight loss goals. it's not a healthy way to live and i'm all about a healthier lifestyle.

i have a sparkfriend that has "AF" (alcohol free) Day goals. i'm going to follow her example and set "SF" (sweet free) goals.

why "SF" and not "CF" (chocolate free)? because when i can't get my hands on chocolate, it's something - anything sweet!

sounds easy ... just don't buy the stuff! but i make my daughter's lunch every school day and for the past 12 years i've placed a chocolate kiss and a little note inside. it would be too traumatic to stop now, this year represents the end of so many things. this is her senior year. just the thought of my baby going off to college ... you guessed it - makes me want to eat tons of chocolate!! oh for goodness sake.

monday is the start of spring break, which equals no sack lunches for two weeks. a perfect time to get in control! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You are not alone in loving chocolate that's for sure...I especially love dark chocolate and am pretty sure M & M's were responsible for a large portion of my last weight gain:)

    Good luck finding a satisfactory substitute treat...Here are a few of mine:

    If you like iced coffee
    Slim fast Chocolate Royal powder mix
    in blender with ice & lowfat milk
    with 1 tbs instant decaf coffee
    top with lite cool whip

    The new treats I crave:

    1 Cup Danon lite & fit vanilla yogurt
    1 cup berries (any)
    1/2 cup fiber one


    1 Cup Danon lite & fit vanilla yogurt
    1 cup diet v8 berry splash
    1 cup frozen berries in blender
