The Banana and MePosted: November 1, 2011
Dieting sucks. You know why? Because it is the day after Halloween and I have all of my favorite candy under one roof, just dying to be eaten…and what am I eating instead? A banana. While I am a huge fan of the banana, it is no Twix bar and don’t even get me started as to how the banana compares to a Snickers. There is just no comparison.
I used my steely Bovine will last night and only gave in to 6 pieces of candy. I know that sounds like a lot but if you think of the fact that 6 pieces was one mouthful for me in years past, you have to realize what a win that was. The thing is, because I enjoyed those 6 pieces yesterday, and I really, really enjoyed them, I have no candy points for today. So it is the banana and me. Humph.
At least the banana is keeping me occupied because I have to tell you the candy in the bowl in the kitchen that I am trying painfully to avoid is awfully seductive. With a creamy complexion and bumps in all the right places, this candy is hard to resist. But I shall resist because I am holding the proud, firm banana who wants nothing more than to satisfy me. Not sure this particular banana can do the job but I’m willing to give him a go….please don’t tell the Bull.
