I went to a series of workshops on Saturday where I learned about diabetes, exercise, women's health, and total body health. Lunch was a salad bar with dozens of various toppings, wheat rolls and fruit cups.
On each table was a little dish full of chocolate. I didn't want to offend any of the hosts or guest speakers from the area so I took a piece.
Oh, and one more.
I finally had to push the dish past my reach so I would stop. I remarked to those seated nearby that - starting right then and there - I had a new health goal involving chocolate. Since I struggle with chocolate temptations and could never not eat it, I would moderate my consumption to allow one piece a day. They agreed with me that the goal was obtainable.On Saturday I purchased a small bag of Riesens. 'One piece' I told myself. Today is Wednesday. I finished the bag yesterday. I could be disappointed in my lack of control but that's just depressing. I prefer to think I'm 12 days ahead of schedule. Early is good, right?
