It's time to break-up with a lover of mine. Yes, I'm talking about Mr. Chocolate.
This week, I'm going to attempt something that will be ultra challenging. I'm going to wean myself off chocolate.
It's going to be SO hard, but I think it's best that me and my love temporarily seperate. We've had a long and sordid affair, and it's been unhealthy for both of us.;-)
I am in love with chocolate of any kind. Milk, white, dark - I don't discriminate. I love premium chocolate, but I also adore "candy bar" chocolate, like coffee crisps and KitKat bars. The second the bite of chocolate lands on my tongue, and begins oozing into my mouth, I am in heaven. And I can never stop at one bite - I could eat it forever, until I explode into a chocolate oblivion. Sigh.
Last week, I managed a few chocolate-free days - but not completely. Also, I somehow have managed to convince myself that eating dark chocolate in any quantity is okay. Which of course, it's not. Though it has amazing health benefits and is incredibly rich and succulent, it is meant to be eaten in moderation. When it comes to chocolate, I don't know the meaning of the word, "moderation".
So, it's with heavy heart that I've made this decision. I think it will be temporary, until I can figure out how to enjoy it without going overboard...and that may take some time. My rebound relationship will be with fruit. Definitely not as satisfying, but better for my heart. I have to keep reminding myself that the relationship with chocolate would have ended badly one day.
Goodbye for now, my lovely chocolate. You've been so good to me - but I have no doubt that we'll enjoy another night of passion sometime in the near future.;-)
