I am proud, yet slightly perturbed by the fact that the contents of my giveaway, lurking in my closet have not tempted me even once. Is this all it takes to refrain from the chocolate/sweet/anything with sugar monster from taking over my brain? Sure, I’ve had the thought of maybe breaking open the Sunflower seed butter to smother some Joe-Joe’s with (they are easy to replace after all), but it’s a mere twinkle in my eye and I have had no strong desires to follow through with these sugar induced thoughts. I would say that’s a win!
I have however, still had the strong monster of glucose, fructose, sucrose, and on and on and on..take over my brain. I try to justify my beast like cravings by blaming my womanhood/monthly gift, but lets be real..I want chocolate 367 days out of the 365 days in a year.
Today I wanted ice cream. This wasn’t a regular, “ice cream sounds like an exceptionally delicious addition to my diet today” thought. This was more like, “I NEED ICE CREAM RIGHT NOW or all the kittens in the world will fall through the cracks of the earth.” Given, some of you would not be phased by this..but being a cat lover, I couldn’t let this happen. Instead of going to Dairy Queen to get an extra large–brownie/oreo/butterfinger/reese’s blizzard, I opted for a “healthier” guilt free dessert. After turning into Safeway and nearly ripping my steering wheel off (priorities people) I pranced into the store like a gazelle that outsmarted a cheetah.
I have had two days this week where I have been in charge of showing another employee how to do the produce section at TJ’s. What are the odds that a produce loving fiend like myself would excel in the produce section? I love teaching other people how to do things, and I love produce. I find that the other sections I have worked (cheese, deli, grocery) are not my strong points, or my favorites. Produce is my home, and has wrapped its tight grip around my broccoli shaped heart.
Random note: On my walk into Safeway to throw away my morals by purchasing ice cream, a man stopped me and asked me where I got my shirt. Take a moment and imagine what this could have been like..a man..asking a woman..about her shirt. Is he feminine? Is she a man? Do they share the same style? Does a bear shit in the woods? Naawww, I was wearing this shirt which happens to be unisex. ASPCA rep rep reppppin’.
