All chocoholics, please raise your hand

Ok so the subtitle to this blog says something like “a girl wanting to drink more water and less wine”. Now it should have a check mark next to it and also read “a girl wanting to eat more salad and less chocolate”. 

Really? I’m having to impose a ban on chocolate? Yes, it seems that way. I ate my way through 2015 – it was a painful year – but 2016 is gonna be different. And it starts tonight. 

As I sit here typing on my iPad, which is resting on my stomach/chocolate shelf, I am announcing publicly I’m easing off the brown, gooey, caramel centred loveliness that is Whittaker’s. Note I used the word ‘ban’ earlier and already I’m shifting toward an ‘easing off’. 


This is going to get ugly.

    My sweet tooth has become super aggressive (esp for chocolate) since I’ve stopped drinking (very early on for me, about 2 weeks). I wonder if this is normal and how long this has lasted for others. Yesterday I tried crunching almonds and cacao nibs to give my my chocolate fix all I can say is it was a sad substitute. πŸ™‚

      Sad substitute? Noooooooo! I heard almonds were meant to stabilise your blood sugar levels and curb chocolate cravings so that was going to be my go-to.
      I’ll give anything a go to help!

    It does get better I promise. It lasted about two months for me. And now I get the odd sugar craving, but miraculously, I do crave healthy stuff…..again, miracle. Its as if my body had found it’s “voice” – “Hey, thanks for not poisoning me anymore, how about a helping of leafy greens tonight? And then tomorrow, maybe we can go for a run…”
    Ok, I made up the last bit about the run, but you get the gist…xxx

      Ooh, I would love it if my body would demand leafy greens and going for runs!

      πŸ€” I am one of those rare people who never got bitten by the ‘running bug’…I had to force myself every. single. time.

      Last year I achieved what I set out to achieve re wine. This year I am building upon that and turn my attention to diet and exercise.

      Do you have any goals like that?

    I Iove coconut Whittakers, and the plain, and the peanut, and the hockey pokey and…… πŸ™‚ no more ice cream or chocolate for me either, I’m thankful it’s what kept me sober but my Whittakers belly has to go!
