The challenge was to avoid eating chocolate for the next two weeks. This came after a series of late nights, packs of m&ms and possibly, just possibly, a few magnums.
Being the die-hard, never give up sort of person that I am, I grudgingly accepted the challenge. Two weeks. Yes, a long hard road…no chocolate, no comfort, no late night burst of cocoa …I could make it.
I failed at the start of Week 1. Day 1 to be exact.
My first test came while doing my weekly shopping. On sale: New chocolate cakes, with a creamy melted chocolate center. Why now? Why me? I now saw the childlike appeal of crying and throwing a tantrum on the floor as I had to have that cake. Cake was definitely not a pack of M&ms. I could have some right?
Valiantly moving on pass the cake aisle (Yes, cake aisle because who wants bread when there’s cake), I somberly picked up the rest of my shopping – detergent, soap, juice, milk… everything that wasn’t cake. However, it couldn’t be that easy could it? It was a sale after all. The cake was everywhere. Aisle after aisle, discount today, cake for sale, try our new recipe. Why me?
As I made it through to the cashier, guess what was waiting for me? Oh, you guessed it! M&Ms! Oh sorry, cake ! Truly irresistible it said and it was… A girl can only take so much and I definitely couldn’t take it anymore! I was going to go crazy and this was just Day 1!!?
Oh no no no, I didn’t fail the challenge there. I made it all the way through to the home. Come on, I was strong, independent. Women’s lib! Equality! Who needs m&ms? Not I!
But you see these:
I definitely needed those. I had bought them earlier before the challenge and so technically, I was obliged to get them. They’d spoil, right?
As I finished my last bite, it hit me… what’s gonna happen tomorrow.. no chocolate?
