With Easter just passed most people have plenty of chocolate in their homes to satisfy even the most voracious chocoholic appetite. Not so in this house. I didn't buy any and no one brought any in. There is only the delightful European Dark Heaven that I bought a couple weeks ago to stave off my cravings. Or satiate my cravings, is more accurate.
I don't have or even want dark chocolate every day. I do, however, have it a few times a week and I am very fond of having it with my morning coffee, second cup.
Hot rich coffee and a little chunk of Dark Heavenly goodness; what a wonderful way to start off your day.
Since I started dancing for a few minutes every morning to keep myself moving and doing something close to physical activity while I wait for the pool to be open, I feel zero guilt enjoying my little guilty pleasure now. The dancing isn't pretty and I imagine it is rather side-splitting to watch, but no one is watching and I am feeling good about moving my big ole butt 4 or 5 days a week. And I am enjoying my chocolate just a little bit more now.
There are some health benefits to dark chocolate; that's good news, but I am far from a health nut. I also enjoy wine, but it's red wine that is suppose to be healthy and I prefer the fruity wines and white wines. Then there is that smoking thing, no brand claims any health benefits only that I will give birth to smaller babies. I'm okay with that particular risk, the others, I just ignore. I'm very narrow minded about that particular subject. I'm also an addict.
I am addicted to caffeine, nicotine and being a happy girl. So save the lectures and know that intellectually I already know that I should not be indulging and if I were a stronger person, I would have tossed those things years ago, but alas, I have failed and even failed hundreds of times. I'm okay with that, one day I will smoke my last cigarette. One way or the other and that will possibly be the last day I eat dark chocolate, too.
