CRAVINGS? And the chocolate diet.

Gabe called this morning... instant Happy Feeling!  Woo hoo!  He sounded so good, there was a lot of laughing and joking around.  When his time was up he hung up, went to the back of the line and called back a short while later.  The best news was... he no longer gets around in a HMVEE... His bigger and better 'ride' arrived and now he has more protection on all sides.

So naturally that put me in high spirits, and high spirits triggered... CRAVINGS!  Now I'm not talking mild craving, this were the nagging, insatiable worse than pre natal cravings!  Breakfast consisted of coffee, half of a left over carnitas burrito with pico de gallo, 2 bbq chicken wings, 6 smoked oysters, a glass of orange juice, more coffee, and finally a small snack sized Hersey chocolate bar which instantly sated my cravings.  Too bad I didn't start with the chocolate, I'd probably have been happy with just that.  Instead I loaded myself down with calories before I found the one thing I really craved.

The lesson learned here is:  always start with chocolate.  In fact, I have concluded that if I were to start my day with chocolate my appetite would possibly be so satisfied that I wouldn't be hungry for the rest of the day.  I see a lot of weight-loss potential here.  At the very least this deserves some further investigation.  I shall begin immediately.

I may just join you on that one.  And if you eat dark chocolate there are supposed to be health benefits as well!  I need to get started on that.  We need a case study.

Glad to hear that Gabe has more protection and that you got a chance to speak to him not once, but twice.

Hi there!  I've been tagged to play a getting to know new journallers game, and guess what!  You're it!  I'm glad I stumbled onto your journal - you're hilarious.

Anyway, if you'd like to play, give me a few minutes to finish my entry and then check it out at http://journals.aol.com/kristeenaelise/thedailypurge.

Of course I'm doing this at work, so its taking a bit longer than I anticipated.  That's what I get for farting around.

=) kris

I'm glad Gabe is more protected, makes me feel a little better.
I could have told you chocolate was the place to start. I always do , problem is I go ahead and eat everything else too.
Hugs, R.C.

Chocolate is the remedy to all things. Headaches, cramps...

Believe me, I start my day with chocolate everyday.  I put a heaping teaspoon into my coffee and add just a touch of milk, and that is the best way I know how to start a morning.  coffee + chocolate = happy me! lol
