I come home from the gym last night after a 2.5hour workout including a really difficult spin class. On my porch is a big box of "stuff". Erm... diabetes supplies of such. I rolled my eyes in appreciation, if that's even possible. The lengths this friend goes to is a bit far but that is not to say I don't appreciate the kindness. I don't need to buy giant rockets for AGES now and my newly discovered emergency PB stash will now sustain an army of diabetics. So I can't complain really.
Except for one thing.........
Yes, that's right, a 1kg bar of chocolate.
Now, I'm a woman right, and I LOOOOVE chocolate. Right now I have to keep my "stash" up on the highest shelf in the pantry and at the back so that the only way I can reach it is by dragging a chair over. I have a gigantic weakness. If I could choose a way to die, as a diabetic it would be death by chocolate. So dear friend of mine, are you testing me?
So here I am after a long workout staring at the biggest chocolate bar I've ever held in my own two hands that belonged to me. Oh my god. If it weren't for the fact that I wanted to write a blog post about it, I would've opened it last night. I managed to hold off so I could take a picture. In fact I'm TOTALLY afraid to open it for it would surely create havoc.
So I'm going to try my best to not open it for as long as I can hold out. I know once it's opened all logic and will power get flushed down the drain. I know the carb content, that's not the problem. The problem is the amount of it. Besides, milk chocolate never does well with my BG's because of the high fat content. I haven't worked the science out yet because then I would be able to justify eating it more. I've intentionally not tried. It's going on the top shelf in the pantry with the others.
A 1kg bar of chocolate to a chocolate loving diabetic who lives alone just spells
D I S A S T E R ! ! !
The only logical way to deal with this is to invite all my chocolate loving friends over. Anybody?! Can't you see I need HELP!!??
Don't let the smile fool you, It's beyond my control. I'm scared!
