Just Say No!

Okay, so if you know me well you know I am a sweet freak! I blame it on my mom- she ate hot fudge sundaes every week after lamase classes. I am not bitter (how can I be bitter when I love sweets!) about my love affair with sweets that started in my mother's womb, but I am realizing just how hard it is for me to say no to them and now that I am getting up there in age, I feel the need to take on a challenge and just say no..........


Oh my gosh, you must think I eat a piece of chocolate cake every day and while that would be my ideal, I actually know better than to keep anything like that in the house......Simple Guy has a sweet tooth, too!.....so we only have tiny morsels of semi sweet chocolate or heavenly bars of 72% dark chocolate in our cupboard. But I have a small handful or piece of chocolate almost every day and while I know that is not bad (some healthy studies would say it is good for me in moderation), it does fuel my cravings for more sweets, which can easily lead to baking cookies or other delectable sweet treats.

Today is day three of Operation: Just Say No! but day five may pose the biggest temptation, for that night we will be at a wedding and we all know that weddings promise the taste of marital bliss cake and who knows what else (spumoni ice cream if the bride or groom are Italian or chocolate fondue if they are hip and trendy).

But just knowing that I will have to report back to you is enough will power to help me JUST SAY NO to sweets that night even though everyone around me will be savoring each bite on their dessert plates.

Okay, I have to stop writing about this.....I can hear those chocolate chips calling from the cupboard and need to do something about that.......I am gonna grab a celery stick and call it a night.

Sweet Dreams! For you, maybe.......but not for me!

When at the wedding, just tell yourself that the cake is probably one of those that looks really pretty but has actually sacrificed all of it's flavor in the name of looking good.
