The Power of Chocolate

I had a really bad day yesterday. Wasn't really one particular thing, but all kinds of things pooling together to make it a not so pleasant day. But at the end  of it, I allowed myself some chocolate. I have been really good eating wise, stayed healthy, went running, and just watching what I eat. So when I decided yesterday that I deserved some chocolate, I had no idea how much I needed that. I love chocolate, always have, always will. 

So! Just in case anyone is wondering: Chocolate never tastes as good as it does when you actually deserve chocolate, when you don't feel guilty for eating it. When you can just enjoy it! And no, I did not share my chocolate. 

Have a great weekend everybody! I know I am looking forward to some fall laziness this weekend, baking a pie maybe, and just enjoying my beautiful family!

  1. I hope you get that relaxing weekend Julia. I understand what you are saying about the chocolate but I never feel like I deserve it, I always feel like I am cheating on some kind of imposed diet.

    1. Yeah that is how I usually feel, but yesterday I just gave myself permission and then DH encouraged it and didn't want any (doesn't like that kind) and so I just enjoyed it! All of it.

  4. Hi Julia. They say dark chocolate is good for your blood pressure and such. I told Moose it like medicine. :). I try to take a little dose of 'medicine' every day. ;)

  10. Aww Julia I'm sorry you had a rough day :( I'm a chocolate lover as well, but I like the bitter stuff the best, like, 71% or higher. Okay now I think I need some...

  11. Chocolate makes the world go 'round, as far as I'm concerned. I'm with Riley - I buy the 85%. Hope this day is better for you...
