I'm nearly half-way through my no-chocolate challenge, and every day, I think about quitting. How sad is that?!
Maybe I picked the wrong time of year for this? Every time I walk into a store, the first thing I see is chocolate. That's not even as a result of my fixating because I miss it so much! Currently, chocolate is EVERYwhere! All in brightly coloured packaging, designed to look as appealing as possible.
The coffee shops and bakeries are pulling out all the chocolate-stops, with cookies, bars, mousses, truffles...
And there I am... Lonely, chocolate-free me.
I could use a big, steaming mug of real, homemade, high-quality hot chocolate right now... Or those adorable little chocolate cookies I made this time last year...
Part of me feels five years old again, stomping my feet and moaning about how UNFAIR it is that I have to do this.
But I'm CHOOSING to do this. It's not a must-do. I could stop any time I choose.
Is this the right choice? Was 3 weeks of no chocolate too ambitious? I'm starting to think that maybe it is. Maybe that's just the cravings talking.
