Stress Relief 101

What does one do when chocolate has been taken off the menu???
  • Running on my elliptical trainer like a crazy women for 20 minutes in the morning.
  • Training as a contortionist with pilates and yoga during a brief moment called nap-time.
  • Deciding pig tails look like fun, and wearing them in public.
  • Singing silly songs and making funny faces over family dinner with the kids.
  • Making cookies with the children realizing, it is naturally comical when the flour comes poofing out of the Heavy Duty KitchenAide mixer at 55 mph.
  • Sneaking off to the supermarket, before midnight......alone.
  • Getting a foot massage from a professional.
Of course, this is all after two weeks of pure torture whilst I detoxed. ;)

Why the ban on chocolate? So sad! At least you found some acceptable substitutes that aren't called 'Dr. Pepper'.

Um, not because I wanted to. The baby expresses her dislike to it with wailing and gnashing of gums. Ah, how I do miss it, though.

I tried to detox from flan and coke at the same time. Not a good idea. I last 1 week - so I've switched to only refusing myself flan. And in compensation, all the coke I want. :)

Scully said...

Panini, maybe you should capitalize the 'c' in coke, as Coke and coke are two very differnt things. You don't want the French police on your case.

Hehehe, Panini. I didn't realize it either till Scully pointed it out. Very crucial. ;)

Oh, man, just pray for the day you can each chocholate again! It shouldn't be taken off of any woman's menu, but you do have a good reason!
