Fridays are my hardest day of the week, its the day I'm always off plan and eat crap. Today was no different. It started with a cookie eaten quickly with guilt, and of course not actually enjoyed so why why why did I do it? Then I felt good about myself when at music I only had a cup of tea and didn't partake in the choccie bikkies on offer. Lunch was good and then the danger zone, Friday afternoon. I eyed up the kids cookies and told myself no, and then my eyes spied chocolate buttons. There was a moment of "aw shit" LOL. My sister had come over on Wed and made cakes with the kids and I thought she had used all the chocolate up or taken it home. I lasted about two hours before a crinkle could be heard from the pantry as I opened the packet and ate some buttons, then some peanut butter. Because nom nom choccie and pb!
Then as I contemplated "should I eat them all at once to get rid of them" (y'all know that idea, eat it so its not in the house!) it occurred to me that if I didn't want them in the house to avoid temptation then it was so frickin simple, get rid of them. I poured them in to the sink, ran the hot water and watched (with almost tears) the chocolate melt away.
So I feel a little proud and a little disappointed. I wish I had the will power to have chocolate in the house, chocolate buttons are great mini-treats for the kids. But I just have no control.
