I gave up chocolate for Lent. You know, the smooth, sweet, sometimes gooey nectar of the gods? Yep. Gave that up. Right in the middle of Easter candy season.
Why yes, I am completely insane and moronic. Thanks for asking. That picture is making my mouth completely water right now.
Today is my 14th day without it. I really haven't had a single ounce of chocolate - for real. For the first time in my life, I haven't cheated on a Lenten promise. I've had no lattes (because, really, without chocolate, you may as well drink coffee black), no candy bars (except for that one salted nut roll that I had last week before recommitting to Weight Watchers), no cookies, cake, etc.
I've hidden the jar of Nutella. It's keeping company with the bag of chocolates (Dove! Dark!!) that webgal got me for my birthday.
I'm dying for just a taste, just one little bite to let it melt slowly on my tongue... But no! I must prove to myself that I can do this. At first, I was like "Hey, it's only 40 days, I can do this, right?" And then I did the math. Lent is actually forty-seven days long.
Which means that I have 33 days left. I am only 1/3 rd of my way through this thing.
Sigh. These carrot sticks that I'm eating aren't helping one bit.
