I have a dilemma, nay a problem. Nay! A crisis! I need all of your heads working together on this and possibly a miracle.
You see, I love hot chocolate. I luuuuuuv it with big, gooey marsh mellows in it. In Texas I was able to keep my cravings at bay because most of the time it was 80 plus degrees outside.
But this winter will be a different story. There are those times when you feel cold to the bone and you want to be immersed in warmth and nothing works except for a hot shower. But you can only take so many showers per day before a) the hot water runs out or b) you're husband admonishes you not to spend all of our savings on the water bill. Plus, when you get out of the shower you're even colder than you were when you went it. So that's not even a good solution. But! Hot chocolate is! It warms you from the inside out. And you're hands are holding your warm mug and pretty soon you start sweating! Not to mention that you get the added deliciousness of cocoa and marsh mellows.
The problem is that I don't want to gain 300 lbs. What do I do? Do I give up a meal? Do I add 30 extra minutes of exercise to the exercise I already do? Do not even mention drinking diet hot chocolate or cutting out the marsh mellows, people. That's ridiculous!
I suppose the only solution is to be reasonable about it and drink it in moderation. Perhaps drink diet hot chocolate most of the time and have regular hot chocolate with marsh mellows as a treat. But I don't want to do that! Sure in Houston moderation is fine. But not here when it's snowing! Where has moderation ever gotten anyone in life?
As you can see, I have a very difficult life. Where are Obama and Oprah when it comes to problems that really matter?!
