    Oh! Coco-chocs! Little fat morsels of goodness.

    Winencandy developed them. One part chocolate to two parts coconut oil. Melt together and pour into molds or little paper cups. A good way to get a bump of coconut oil. I started with all semi-sweet chocolate, but now I mix my chocolate 2 parts straight unsweetened baking chocolate to 1 part semi-sweet. I also have been adding chopped up macadamia nuts to mine lately. In the past, I have done little globs of almond butter in the centers: divine!

    Mostly grown up

    I did almost all of my chores. Only clearing the papers off the counter left. I think that's pretty good. Plus, I did some walking, which wasn't even on the list! One bacon point awarded. No twining was done, though.

    Rather vexing conversation with my Honey this morning. We just think differently about some things. I will NOT eat for stress relief. The possible future problem will not be any easier to deal with if I am fatter and feeling like crap.

    Here's what I did yesterday:

    Up at 5:45

    9:45 catfish fried in
    coconut oil
    1C greens gratin
    artichoke mayo
    1 coco-choc

    2:00 Cordon Bleu Chicken Casserole
    2 coco-chocs

    6:30 chicken fajita meat
    sour cream
    cheddar-lots!
    salsa
    1/2C blackberries

    Water: 9 glasses
    Walking: 35"

    Bed at 9:30

    The chicken meat was from one of those pre-marinated packs, and it tasted decidedly chemically to me. Guess it is time to strike that from our shopping list, and make my own. I meant to have 3 coco-chocs with breakfast, but after ten minutes of waiting, I decided one would do.

    I have been telling myself ^this a lot lately. Sounds like you have it under control, lady. Keep taking care of yourself.

    Good for you Sabine - "The possible future problem will not be any easier to deal with if I am fatter and feeling like crap." That little line has so much to it doesn't it?! I say it all the time but it doesn't seem to prevent me from grabbing the chocolate or nuts ... hopefully you will inspire me to be grownup today and do what is going to feel awesome - in the long run! Long term goals not immediate gratification .....

    Yes, and you know, the discussion was about a long-term goal versus immediate gratification in real life.

    I would be a hypocrite if I advocated for the long-term goal there, and then, when it was denied, immediately crammed myself with some immediate gratification! I think it will help me, if I keep that in mind. There's nothing like a smug sense of moral superiority to make it easier to stick to a course of action.

    I am making some coco-chocs using ONLY unsweetened baking chocolate. After I poured the mix into the cups, I took a swipe of the plain mixture. YOWZA! We'll see how it takes in solid form. The good part: if it is a fail, I can melt it down and just add some semi-sweet.
