i want ALL the chocolate.

Twelve days.

Ok eleven days.  How about we say eleven and a half days.  That is how long I've gone so far without any sweets.  We did make a little pit stop at The Melting Pot for dessert after celebrating Christopher matching in to a fellowship, and I absolutely don't regret that one little bit.  But aside from that I haven't had any sweets yet this year.

Originally I had planned to just go the first week without any sweets with the hopes of kicking the habit yet again of essentially eating half a bag of chocolate chips one handful at a time throughout the day.  But then with some of my friends shooting for the whole month I felt a little guilty about stopping after one week.  Not to mention my craving for sweets hasn't really lessened at all.  I figured for sure by now I wouldn't be missing it.  But no, I stand in the middle of the kitchen after nearly every meal torturing myself, toying with the idea of giving up and just eating some damn chocolate.

I so wish I didn't have such a lame relationship with food.

Running at least a mile every day in January is going well.  It is helping at least keep my weekly mileage up a tiny bit.  I'm doing nearly all my running on the treadmill right now and I have to be in just the right mood to convince myself to stay on that thing longer than 3.5 miles.  Oh well.  Hopefully when I need to start training for a half a couple of weeks from now the weather will be slightly warmer (HA) and I'll get to do a little more running outside.

Other than that nothing exciting to report.  I think I've lost two pounds, but I still fluctuate a lot so it's hard to tell.  But I'll pretend it's true.  Hoping to be down another two by the end of the month!

I have very little self control when it comes to sweets. I find myself doing the same thing after meals. Lately I've talked myself into having hot chocolate as my sweet treat which at least keeps the calorie count down a little.

The treadmill is rough! The only way I ever enjoy it is with a tv right in front of me and it has to be something with no commercials or I have half a mind to hop off during them!
