Day #13: Attack of the Chocolate Croissant


OK, so no chocolate croissant yet, but I woke up with visions of the most flaky, buttery croissant, drizzled with dark chocolate and overfilled with milk chocolate creme. I made a chocolate protein shake instead, but was only able to choke down about half of it before giving up, even though I even used coconut milk for extra “decadence.” Hmmm.

Now I’m sitting at my desk at work, surrounded by small pleasures – an apple, grapefruit juice, 24 oz of unsweetened ice tea. I brought an avocado for lunch, just so I’d have something creamy and fatty to look forward to for later in the day. Still, a yummy baked good sounds so good right now. I’ll make it, but it’s going to be one of those days. I’m guessing it probably has something to do with it being that time of the month any day now, but neither my body nor my wallet can afford to go bathing in chocolate at the moment. Wow, bathing in chocolate. Mmmmm…

I weighed in at 157.4 lbs this morning, a small victory. No yoga for me tonight (and none this morning, either), but I’ll put in a 2 mile run. I’ve got trivia tonight at my neighborhood bar, which typically leads to beers and bar food. Tonight I’m going to do my best to keep it to one low-calorie beer, lots of water, and no bar food. I’m almost done with going to trivia on a weekly basis, too, so I won’t have too much longer to deal with the weekly temptation of a helping of loaded cheese fries. OK, gonna go eat an apple and stop thinking about fried and/or chocolate-laced food right now.
