I have a goal

For the most part I think I'm a pretty healthy eater. I like vegetables, I don't stock soda in my fridge, potato chips are bought on rare occassion. But I do like sweets.

Occasionally, I enter the death spiral of survival. I hit a lull in energy and I try to climb out of it by eating mini eggs or something. Of course this gives me a little boost and sends my energy down even lower the next time, requiring me to eat more mini eggs (no, please! don't drop any more of those chocolate delicacies into my mouth!). I'd like to call it the chocolate spiral of survival, but that sounds tempting and delicious, so I stick with the more fear inducing name.

I decided that after the Easter candy is gone, that's it. I'm done with junk. I have 6 weeks until my due date and I need to shape up, metaphorically speaking. The literal shaping up at this point is moot, unless you consider shaping out the same thing. You can stop by to find me munching on carrots and enjoying the spring strawberries. Except I'm really craving the easter egg malt balls and they're all on sale... so maybe I'll have to stop spiraling in a day or two.


  1. I know EXACTLY what you mean. We tend to be very healthy eaters in our house, but when it comes to after dinner sweets and treats there is no control. That is why I so kindly trashed ALL of our Easter candy. It helps to not have the temptation right at hand. And when I do get a sweet attack I am trying to find other ways to occupy my mind.

    Good luck! Wow, I can't believe you only have 6 weeks left?!?

  2. Please do not ever mention mini-eggs in the same post with malted milk eggs again. Thanks.

  3. Just give in. You have the rest of your life to be good. Plus, Easter only comes once a year. Those delectable little eggs only last a few weeks around our place--despite the stash we swear will get us through the summer.

  4. Those mini eggs are one of my many great chocolate weaknesses.
