Eau de Chocolate

It’s official – the prep gods hate me!! Sunday, I stopped at Walgreens because The Princess needed more paper for her school notebook and her desk at home. I ran into the store and of course, had to pass all of the Easter candy to get to the aisle where the paper was. On my way to the register, I may or may not have accidentally on purpose walked down the aisle to see all of the chocolate in pretty pastel wrapping! I didn’t slobber like I usually do….UNTIL….I got to the end of the aisle and saw the dark chocolate Peeps!! Peeps are my all-time favorite Easter candy…wait…that’s a lie…Snickers eggs are my favorite but Peeps are a close second! I reached out…just to touch one…but quickly reminded myself of my personal rule that once you touch it, you have to eat it!!! I whimpered, walked away, and left the store with 2 packages of college-ruled paper....BORING!
 Smelling candy just doesn't cut it!
Today, I received a phone call from one of my co-workers that someone was selling World’s Finest Chocolate and there were dark chocolate with almonds bars left. Luckily, I had three dollars in my wallet (which was a sign that I was meant to have the candy because I NEVER have money in my wallet!!) so I have three candy bars loungin’ my lunchbag. All I wanted to do was shove them in my mouth like the Cookie Monster does when he has a plate of cookies in front of him. Instead, I will be putting them in the freezer with some of the other goodies I’ve stashed for my post-show binge :)

Right now is the time in prep where I start having dreams about food and indulging in a RIDICULOUS amount of food porn. Did anyone of you see the Triple Layer Cookies and Cream Crunch Bars post on How Sweet It Is? I have to keep reminding myself that I want abs…..so chocolate and baked goodiesare a no-no!
I smell chocolate…..
Maybe abs are overrated……


  1. You can do it! Plus chocolate tastes better once it's sat in the freezer for a few weeks! :)

  2. I have been gawking at those Triple Layer Cookies as well! May 22nd will be my day to have a belly full of chocolate! Every second of the stomach ache that will follow will be worth it too!

    i have been fighting the urge to get into my kids chocolate animal crackers,AND the easter aisles at the stores!!!!
    my dear T,
    WE are STRONGER THAN ANY chocolate around....
    3 more weeks for you,and 5 more for me and we can indulge in the yummy goodness!
    untill then..
    you got this chica,stay strong,stay focused,and stay positive!!!!
    im dealing with the same stuff here on my side of the coast,so one of us has to be the strong---heck,BOTH of us are strong....

  4. Stay strong! Resist the temptations! :)

  5. COOKIE MONSTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    My problem is the Reese's junk at easter. I love the eggs! Way more peanut butter! And the muscle gainer inside of me is saying "BUT! Peanut butter=good for you! Have! Have now!" :)

    But guess what?! Easter is going to be over soon and you're going to feel way more proud of yourself if you don't indulge! Cultivate that feeling of pride inside of you! :)

  6. MMM, yummy! I too am a huge sucker for peeps. BUT, I didn't know they had dark chocolate covered ones! YES! I love the How Sweet emails I get, I just drool over everything.


    I love that you smell food wrappers too. I have been found in a bakery just standing there smelling the bread bake more times than I would like to admit. ;)

    you're almost there and when you get there you will want abs more than chocolate covered peeps; I promise.

  8. I love the photo of you sniffing the chocolate bar! Good job denying it!

    Those cookie brownie things look to die for though!
