That Chocolate Fix

Friday, February 11, 2011

I've found the perfect solution to getting the perfect chocolate fix without the worry of not being able to stop. All chocoholics know a little bit of chocolate on that healthy bar or biscuit really doesn't do it....

It's all come to light due to the fact Chris bought me a packet of mini-eggs on Monday by mistake. The mistake being he meant to pick up one packet...just for him and accidentally bought 2.
He passed me the packet on Monday night and I popped it into my work bag to take to work so that he couldn't also polish off my mini eggs. But I knew I didn't want to eat them all at once. Half the bag being 245 calories or there abouts...

So when I got to work I left them in my bag and didn't touch them. Then my friend/colleague was having a stressful time and needed some cheer me up chocolate so I opened the bag and passed her a few. The smell of the chocolate hit me in a wave as I opened the bag so I quickly locked them away in my desk drawer.

Then later on I took out just 2 mini eggs and locked them away again. That was all I ate on Monday. Throughout the course of this week I've eaten 7 mini eggs. 3 of them being just now. Straight after I've savoured the flavour of the 2 or 3 I've allowed myself, I drink a load of water to wash out my mouth, this stops me craving more of that delicious flavour we all know and love because I cannot taste it anymore, and I can't smell them because they're locked away.

Not only do I get to make them last...I get to have a proper bit of chocolate without too much worry of falling off the wagon.

    Hmmm, I've never thought to drink water to wash out my mouth after having a bit of a treat. Which is why just last night I ate two chocolate bars. *facepalm* I'll try it in the future. Thanks for the tip!
