My Achilles Craving
Monday, February 17, 2014
Ahhh, the sweet bliss of a craving fulfilled.
Ahhh, the sweet curse of a craving denied.
Or is it.
I find the thing I ended up really really craving - chocolate - is typically my demise.
Recently I read, that some people with food allergies, actually crave the very thing they are allergic to and that can wreck havoc.
I am not allergic to chocolate.
But, it is my bugaboo.
I think I can handle it, and let it sneak by - oh, just a cup of cocoa, just a little dark chocolate (but who can have one bite, and resist the open bar).
Every time I go off track, that is the main culprit.
So today - I only had one cocoa, with my decaf to make a mocha, and a couple of chocolate chips. I am sure I may have another cup of cocoa.
I have avoided buying the candy bars I so easily bought at the holidays for gifts. Those I snuck a nibble in here and there.
Right now I have to retreat back from the sneaking of a slice of toast, or english muffin, or the occasional piece of chocolate. So hard to do, but will do me so much better if I avoid it.
So at the grocery store, I bought blueberries, more fruit, yogurt, and for the occasional treat - dark chocolate covered fruit. Real occasional.
Is it an occasion already?
