Food Cravings

AS most of you know, I gave up chocolate as a New Year resolution. It's cut back on my sweets consumption some (Ferrero Rochers mock me at the check out stand), for the most part I've just shifted which sweets I eat. For example, instead of ice cream sandwiches, I now have orange creamsicles.

Last night was the first time in the 4 months that I've been chocolate free that I really wanted some. The roommate and I do laundry at a laundromat. While the clothes are in the drier, we walk across the street to the Friendly's and grab dinner. On the menu was a hot chocolate sundae - chocolate ice cream with whipped cream, mini marshmallows, and Swiss cocoa, all served in a mug, too. It sounded really, really good and I almost broke my chocolate fast. I am happy to report that I did triumph over temptation, with a little help from some maple walnut ice cream.

Today I am randomly craving peanut butter. Why? I have no idea.

Congratulations on maintaining your chocolate fast. You are stronger than chocolate! Chocolate does not have mail balls!

Craving peanut butter is deeply ingrained in your psyche. Especially peanut butter in pie form. It's about as random as me craving loud fast music or MSG-flavored processed corn products.

The word verification I have to type in to post this comment is "twaft", which I find amusing. As in, "Ay, right in the twaft!"

It could also be a good insult. "You're such a twaft"
