Possible Blaspheme

Happy Good Friday. I’m unsure that is an appropriate salutation as today is a slightly morbid day in Christianity (sorry, I am approaching blaspheme…I’ll shut up now).

I am technically supposed to be fasting. However, since I’m eating only Nutrisystem food, I feel as if I’m constantly teetering on the edge of a massive (Easter candy) binge. Therefore, I won’t push my luck and deprive myself further. In fact, I’ve been daydreaming about Cadbury Eggs today, and I’ve comprised a little haiku:

Choco creme goodness
Is my resistance futile?
I fear we’ll BOTH crack

Ha! I’d venture to say that the Easter season provides the best candy of all holidays. Besides my affinity for the Cadbury Creme Egg, I’m partial to the malted robin’s eggs, Cadbury Mini Eggs, Peeps (mmm), and the big jellybird eggs. I also love the buttered popcorn Jelly Bellies which were a staple at my grandma’s house because she used them in her birdnest cookies.

That being said and out of my system, you’ll see that I have added a little progress chart of my weight loss along the sidebar to spur me on. I’m still on track for my November 20 goal. I shall persevere!

I admire your restraint. I have been eating jelly bellies, robin's eggs, spring wrappered reece's--and am making a fattening almond cake for Easter! I need a springtime cleaning of my diet!

Its the hershey's chocolate eggs that get me. My sewing room is littered in foil. I don't know what it is about them, Kisses don't do it for me at all. I'm on restriction though. I have stockpiled a little bag for later.

Morbid .. hah you crack me up.My daughter has a funny little name for it too.. she's a blasphemer bar none.
