The thing of it is...

A older grandpa-ish man in my neighborhood always starts his sentences with that, and I love it.  But in a time like this, it starts my sentence perfectly. 

The thing of it is, I don't like it when the chocolate in my cupboard speaks to me.  "Erin, I'm in here, waiting for you.  Come and eat me.  Oh la la, baby.  You know I taste like creamy, rich goodness.  No one will know.  Just one bite . . ."

And on, and on, and on.

But I know it's not just one bite.  Yet still I'm drawn to it and then two days of chocolate bingeing later, I feel like a giant slug and my pants don't fit. 

Know what I'm talking about? 

Since a few friends and I just started a Fitness competition, I'll be danged (another lovely Utah-ism) if I don't get over this food talking issue. 

Suggestions?  Oh please, tell me what you do.

LOL I totally understand how that goes! I say.. throw it out! Just get rid of it all together so you aren't tempted. If your man wants to keep it, tell him to stash it somewhere where you won't know about it and then tell you that he threw it out. haha... good luck!!

Kristina P. said...

I agree with Misty. You just have to get rid of it.

I don't have any suggestions for you, seeing as I just made a batch of cookies that I am happily eating. But I would love some of YOUR suggestions for staying fit!

And Ruby is the cutest ever. Love her picture in the post below!

Been there...doing that...every day. I'm so sad I missed your class this morning, I had 2 pukers at home and decided not to contaminate the nursery. I heard a great fitness quote some time ago..."You can either let it go to waste (garbage can) or let it go to waist (hips, buns, thighs)" I say that to myself everytime I'm reaching for extra food or treats and then throw it out. It helps a little...but not a cure all!

I complained to Danny once about talking ice cream. He said, "Next time that happens I'll be happen to put it in the microwave to shut it up."

I need help too. See this post here. Send all your friends over with their suggestions.

Nikki said...

duh! That was supposed to say "happy" not "happen." ergh.

Ditch the chocolate and buy some V8-I know that sounds terrible, but if you can get yourself to drink it all that fiber and veggies will leave you content.

Stacey said...

Get some chocolate in your house that isn't going to kill your diet! Skinny cow chocoate ice cream bars, or heathy choice fudge bars! Both a good option for chocolaty goodness with way less calories and fat!

And I am with you! Getting back into shape is a BIG goal for me this year.

Just give in... The chocholate wants you to be happy. You want to be happy. And you want JoAnn to win.

OK really if you can't stop yourself after a small amount then you might want to get rid it.

I just read waste quote and thought of this one "a moment on your lips means a lifetime on your hips".

You've gotta keep it out of the house! That's what I've learned to do. If I have a naking need I go out and get chocolate at that time, but to just keep it in the house... nope. Just a week ago I bought chocolate chips in anticipation of bking for a party this week. Oops! I ate the whole bag.
BUT, leaarn to treat yourself. A piece or 2 of See's candy (or whatever your pleasure is) once in a while so that you don't get that bingey feeling.

Julie said...

Dump out all your little candy stashes that you like to hide all over your house. It's like a temptation in every room. Just chuck it. That's what I do. You can also make a deal with yourself that before you get a piece of chocolate you have to eat three big carrots and drink a tall glass of water. Those big carrots are kind of hard to get down sometimes. Maybe that will be a deterrant.
