I often feel that some things in life would be sooo much easier if I had my own personal police force.
Their goal would be to prohibit, enforce and basically just police yours truly...me.
Let me explain...
My dogs are all nice and lean...why?
because I am the one who says what goes in their mouths...
<although they do occasionally sneak treats like horse poop...which is abundant in these parts...my pasture at least>
I care about their welfare and their well being and their health so they are on a strict, measured diet of a very high quality food.
If only I could do the same for myself.
Now I'd admit that I'd be a little...we'll call it, disgruntled... if I were suddenly locked away from all food and only able to eat what some higher, well- intentioned being allowed me.
But, I would be a much skinnier and healthier blahblahblah disgruntled person.
Which would be nice!
I was going to give up chocolate or caffeine or alcoholic beverages for Lent...
but that fell through...
I definitely lean on these things to get me through the day...
<the first two anyway...I must have them! the third is just nice to have occasionally...like on the weekend or after an especially long day of work>
Seriously though, I used to depend on coffee to warm me up on freezing cold winter mornings <And Yes, sis we DO have those down here- even if it's like minus 30 up there where you are it does not make plus 30 here any more bearable for me!> ...
but now...its ALL mornings...then a soda or sweet tea midday to keep me going!
Chocolate, however, is the devil and salvation all in one.
A moment on the lips , forever on the hips...it's true.
But when you need it, none of that matters.
My new rule...unless you are Godiva, Swiss, or some fantastically decadent freshly baked dessert...
You too Snickers.
I mean it.
P.S. I will miss you dearly.
