Not even icy roads can keep me from chocolate!

I kept peeking out the window in hopes that all the ice that covered the street had miraculously melted during the time that I was in the shower. No such luck, my craving for brownies was beginning to frustrate me. It wasn’t so much the brownie itself that I needed….I needed that yummy chocolate batter. This was as close to any sexual frustration that I have ever felt but there was no toy, no chocolate substitution that could take this edge off but that dang Pillsbury Funfetti Brownie mix.

I had an idea ….

I cornered my hubby in the hallway and gave him one of my flirtatious  “I have a proposition for you” looks.

“Soooo, I was wondering something”  smiling as I twirled a strand of my hair.

“Yesssss” he said.

“If you take me to the store to buy brownie mix I’d make it worth your while later” as I brushed my hand  against his cock.  “You don’t even have to change, I just need you to drive me …. the roads are too icy for me to drive”.    He laughed and headed to the garage, next thing I heard was him start up the car.

Who knew it could be that easy…..but he wins either way, he gets brownies and a little somethin somethin later on!!

So, yes……. I made brownies, thanks to my hubby who maneuvered his way through icy side streets to get me to the store. I also think he knew I was getting a bit stir crazy and needed to get out even if it was just for twenty minutes.

And yes……I licked that spoon clean, along with any chocolatey goodness that was left in the bowl.

I received some awful news yesterday. It was one of those “Shut up, that can’t possibly be” type of news. I was just sitting there waiting for her to crack a smile and say “I’m kidding”, but that never happened.

How are you feeling? Did your migraine go away?” a co-worker asked.

“it’s not as bad as it was, but I probably overdosed on chocolate which brought on the migraine”….I said, JOKINGLY.

“You DO know that chocolate is a trigger for migraines right?”

“SHUT UP!! You’re kidding…..” I waited for her to say she was joking.

“No really, have you ever read up on what triggers migraines? Chocolate is one of them” she said.

Now….I wasn’t going to argue with her, she knew her stuff…..plus she runs the clinic. So she should know a thing or two about medicine.

“Thanks for delivering the worse news EVER” I said laughing as I looked at the Frankenstein bowl filled with chocolate in front of me. “Stupid ass chocolate, next you’re going to say that wine, olives and bread are triggers as well”. She laughed….as we headed out to our cars.

This can’t be true, I thought to myself as I was driving home. I did eat a good consumption of Twix and KitKats earlier that day, but I was stressed out……urgh I need to move the bowl. I can’t have my death certificate  read “Death by Chocolate”.

Once I got home, I logged onto my computer and typed in “Migraine Triggers” ….. Please let her be wrong, I said to Lily my furgirl……but she wasn’t.

Migraine Food triggers

Here’s a partial list of major food triggers, according to the National Headache Foundation.

• Ripened cheeses (such as cheddar, Emmentaler, Stilton, Brie, and Camembert)
Chocolate
• Marinated, pickled, or fermented food
• Foods that contain nitrites or nitrates (bacon, hot dogs) or MSG (soy sauce, meat tenderizers, seasoned salt)
Sour cream
• Nuts, peanut butter
• Sourdough bread
• Broad beans, lima beans, fava beans, snow peas
• Figs, raisins, papayas, avocados, red plums
• Citrus fruits
• Excessive amounts (more than 2 cups total) of caffeinated beverages such as tea, coffee, or cola
• Alcohol (including red wine and beer)

I’m screwed …..  hahaha…… at least it doesn’t mention olives, I love olives!!  Okay, so I guess if I have tiny amounts of chocolate, cheese, sourdough bread, tea and of course wine I shall be able to keep the migraines at bay….but I also have to stop stressing myself out to.

I hope I didn’t ruin anyone else’s day by this news.

Fill a bowl with chocolate and they will come

candy

Yes, in the spirit of one of my favorite holidays it was time to add a  little something to my office and by something I mean…..chocolate and why not put it in a festive bowl?  the bowl full of yumminess will only pose a problem much sooner than later, because chocolate is my weakness and I’m trying to lose weight, but I have to look on the bright side…..people in the office will come visit!!

Will my Hydroxycut  cut it and save me from the temptation in front of me?? probably not, I have to stay strong. I have to pretend they aren’t there….I HAVE to go back on the Dukan Diet which was amazing, strict but amazing!!

On another note, I noticed that I lost two blog followers today…..I can only suspect that it had something to do with my earlier post regarding my relationship with my mother . I shouldn’t have to feel like I have to apologize for writing an honest, from the heart post…..I try to keep this blog light and fun but sometimes the need to write very raw personal posts happen and if one doesn’t sit with you, dear reader why not comment, voice your opinion rather than leave altogether?

I started this blog because I have this desire to pretty much spill my guts out in this type of forum and as my husband says jokingly “at least 400 people like to read your ramblings when I don’t”,  believe me he hears the cliff-note version of what I write but he doesn’t follow my blog…..and that’s fine with me.

We all started blogging for a reason and yes, some of you might agree when I say that it’s cheaper than therapy. In some ways, the shy introvert inside myself is able to come out and share my life with you without fear of judgement, because if I were in an auditorium with all of you, I would be the one in the corner or sitting in the back row shying away from everyone.

~ till next time, eat some chocolate and have a great day
