Small Victories

Yesterday, I experienced a very small victory on the Fit Train. I, littlesack, did not eat chocolate alll day. Not at all, not even one small m&m or a crumb from a cookie. I'm sure I've done this before. But yesterday I consciously and actively avoided all chocolate. I feel very proud.

I am a lover of all things chocolate. Cheap crappy kind, yup. Rich, dark amazing kind, yup. Body wash that smells like chocolate, yup. (Thank you, Philosophy).

On an everyday basis, its not like I have an IV of chocolate hooked up to me or anything. But, I do believe that a small amount, every day, does a soul good and keeps the mind sane. And by small, I mean like a 100 cal pack of m&ms or 2 bing chocoloate cherries. It's just my small little pick-me-up to fight the afternoon slump.

But yesterday, I was going strong and didn't even need that chocolate. Once I realized how long I had gone without it, I made an effort to avoid it the rest of the day. Woohooooo for me!

Today, however, is a different story...and the m&m packet is calling my name. One day at a time, ladies, one day at a time.

haha, maybe I should have written "little things"!!

I can't wait!!! I've never been to Venice, but I've always wanted to go!

Italy is amazing - I've been to Rome and it's fabulous, there's so much to see and do, and the food's delicious!

That IS a victory. Congratulations!

congrats! that's tough to do, especially once you have consciously thought about it. but chocolate is very good and i do agree that a little bit every now and again (or everyday, whatever) is good for. it is said to release endorphins so it can't be that bad!

You have great willpower. Great job!

I'm not sure I've gone a day without chocolate. I'm not sure its possible.
