flexing the willpower muscles

It’s 21 days since I gave up chocolate and I keep encountering temptations like this all over the place.

This one was taunting me while I was waiting in the checkout queue at the fruit and veg shop. As an aside, now that I think of it, both the fruit & veg shops (which have different owners) I frequent have giant Ritter displays, I wonder what that’s about.

So far I’m not missing chocolate too much though there have been a couple of times when I’ve been a little stressed when I could have happily gobbled up a family sized Cadbury block. The physical response to seeing blocks of chocolate is still there, but I’m happily ignoring it and embracing the challenge.

345 days until the year is over. I suspect this will go the way of alcohol – one of those things my life is infinitely better without!
