It's time to confess ...

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!
