If only celery tasted like chocolate...

Saturday, November 16, 2013

...I'd be eating a lot of celery.

So...I have a serious chocolate problem. Ugh. I don't know how to give it up, and most days I don't ever want to. I have tried to transition to dark chocolate and only having a few pieces a day/night, but it still seems like I crave it EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. ALL. THE. TIME.

I have a similar relationship with soda, but at least that I can go days without. Like this week, I didn't have any soda.

I don't know if it is mental and I have just trained myself in habit to want chocolate at the end of my day. Or maybe it is emotional, I think I've worked hard and deserve a reward (even though I hate and try to avoid using food as a reward). Or maybe I just lack this thing called self-control that every seems to talk about. No matter the reason, I have a problem. I guess the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem, right? Well, I'll say it again, I have a problem.

Is there something so wrong though with wanting something sweet at the end of your day? But why do my options always have to be so bad for me? Well...maybe because I don't crave fruits (with their own natural sweetners) like I do addictive chocolate and it's tricky rabbit ways.

Anyways, I suppose I am sort of rambling now, but I need to start working on finding some self-control. What are your thoughts though, do you eat chocolate (or something sweet, or have your own vice, that you eat/drink at the end of the day)?

Spark on, Sarah

    I have the same addiction to chocolate: Almond Snickers and Twix are the worst, but I haven't tasted many chocolates I didn't like. There are low calorie healthy snacks that give the flavor of chocolate without the 240+ calories. My major weight gain was a Snickers and Coke Diet, thank goodness for Diet Coke
