This dark grey morning, suspecting nothing, I innocently strolled into the Lab only to be faced with horror of shock horrors...an undergrad bearing gifts!! Now this can be a regular event after the undergrad lab project training but at the end of May?! AFTER the exams?! revolutionary! Worst of all she came bearing one of my greatest downfalls...Cadbury's milk tray....Cadbury's has (to my shame) been enough in the past to tempt me away from my vegan attempts and has even been my willing accomplice in my apparent mission to gorge myself on sweet treats until either my stuffed to the gills stomach or my lactose intolerance (i know, i know) makes me ill... and there it is, sitting there, all purpley and unopened...but I can nearly smell them... ahhhh
I have a cunning plan...
2.lactose is bad and
3. portion control (I'm a genius right?).
I'm gonna be the most generous person in the building today, because each one they eat it one less for me to eat!
Ok second, lactose is baaaad, I know I'll feel rotten afterwards. Lets face it, in the past I have ignored feeling awful later for instant gratification because those are two great great words...instant.... (now now now now!) and gratification (need I say more?). Problem is, instant gratification only lasts...yup, an instant...so it is unbelievably not worth it.
Plus I've got a beautiful healthy meal plan for today all food I'll enjoy because they are yummy and good for me.
So ok, number three, last chance saloon...As I live in a country (Ireland) of 'Ahhh go on! ah you will, sure just have one, they're only little! sure we're all having one! you'll miss out if you don't take one now! go on! ah you will you will you will!...it can be hard to resist.
I will bear in mind that each one of those milk tray bad boys is 50 fat laced calories and limit myself to a maximum of two. Because I understand that no treats isn't the right way to go etc etc...but If you enjoy a few glasses of wine as much as I do then you'll understand I have plenty of treats lined up for this week.
Phew, ok, I'm psyched up, ready to face those sneaky fatty bullies!
Never thought I'd ever compose a stream of consciousness berating a box of milk tray but hey, surprises around every corner.
yours in strength and military like courage
