This week on the Spin Cycle, brought to you by Gretchen at Second Blooming and Ginny Marie and Lemon Drop Pie is on temptation. Oh, sweet temptation, how I hate you. And by sweet temptation I mean sweets. Candy, chocolate, you name it. They are my vices. Seriously, I have a hardcore chocolate addiction. Just right now, as I am working on attorney thank you gifts which are chocolates, I have eaten like 7 Hershey's Hugs. Dammit. (The gifts are super cheesy by the way...they are thank you gifts that say "Just a few HUGS and MOUNDS of thanks for supporting our agency!" and include Hershey Hugs and Mounds candy bars. Cheesy, right?) Maybe I'm assuming everyone else likes chocolate as much as I do. But I probably shouldn't be eating the attorneys' candy.
Oh chocolate, why are you so delicious?
I keep telling myself that I need to scale back on the sweets, but I can't help it. And I'm a strong believer in one principal. I am anti-low fat chocolates or candy. If you look, the caloric intake really isn't as different normal stuff, and I am a firm believer of if you are going to break your diet, you make it count. If you are going to have chocolate and take in those calories, don't half-ass it. Skip the Skinny Cow candy and get yourself a piece of Godiva. It's so much more worth it and tastes ten times better!
What are your vices? I guess you should add red wine into that. Because you can't enjoy a truly good piece of chocolate without a glass of Cabernet or Merlot. That doesn't make me an alcoholic. It just makes me a smart woman. Anyway, so I'm covering two posts with one here. My temptation is chocolate, and dammit, I am thankful for that sweet goodness. My dream vacation would be to go back to Ireland and go back to the Guinness Storehouse but somehow also have the Hershey's factory right next door. Or connected to it. Ah, I can dream....
