Non-Financial Challenge--No Chocolate for A Week

January 15th, 2007 at 04:33 pm

Ever since Thanksgiving I have been surrounded by chocolate...at home, at work...pretty much everywhere I go. I can't remember a day in recent history where I have not had a piece (or 5) of chocolate.
After reading my free Weight Watchers newsletter this morning, which suggested setting small weekly goals each week to achieve weight loss, I decided the chocolate habit has to go.
So, here I am...at work...sitting next to a candy dish full of dark chocolate that was thoughtfully provided by a favorite vendor as a Christmas gift to my boss and I. It has been quietly calling my name for a couple of hours now, and it is taking all of my willpower to ignore it. Sigh.
I tried to squash the craving by having a spoonful of peanut butter, but all I could think of was how good it would taste with a piece of that chocolate......

    You are very very brave!

    FrugalSon brought me home a whole bag of dark chocolate from his work that no one wanted.

    Thanks - I think!

    Oh gosh, dark chocolate....I was able to throw out the jelly beans on my computer desk, and I haven't hardly eaten the peanut butter thingys. But dark chocolate.....oh my.....you're stronger than me....
    In a more serious mode, good luck with your challenge!

    HArd indeed!

    I Was just wondering if I should just freecycle all the candy - there is so much left - it is ridiculous. I am actually kind of sick of it - hehe. I need to just bring it all to work...

    good challenge!! I love chocolate, so I can imagine how hard this must be for you. But, on the bright side, dark chocolate is better than milk or white, and if it has a high % of cocoa, it may even be great for your health compared to having extra peanut butter.
