It has become a habit of mine to have a few pieces of dark chocolate every night, and then I feel like shit, and wish I hadn’t. And the next day, I hang my head in shame and say, wtf, why can’t I just skip it?
And sure enough, that evening, I’m like screw it! I want something sweet! And I eat my few pieces of dark chocolate (Dove Dark Chocolate, no less!)
But.. tonight, I sat down at the comp, looked at the piece of dark chocolate and said “NO. I’m not eating any dark chocolate tonight!” I need to break my habit of it. I eat so well all day long, and then I feel like I blow it at night.
I may opt for either a protein shake in a bit, or I might make some of my banana ice cream.
Not that that would be any less BAD for me.. yes it’s paleo, mostly paleo.. more paleo than chocolate is.. but still. it’s 9:15p and I have a hot date with the gym in less than 12 hours. 9 hours and 45 min to be exact.. so its not like eating sweets right now would do me any good.
Sigh. I’m just happy I told myself no tonight. Now that I’m determined to not eat it, it’s like it’s no big deal. Hard to believe that it ever was.
