Can I eat this

mud cake

The gooey chocolate mud cake was making eyes at me. I could see him trying to tempt me, the tease! But I wouldn’t succumb. Willpower. After all, the scales screamed seventy kilos today.


Fuck willpower.

You only live once.

I binged.

    Been there, done that! I give in to temptation way too often! Working at home today, and just ate two servings of double fudge brownie ice cream (http://www.edys.com/SlowChurned/Flavor/2562)!! So good!! 🙂

    I had to google “willpower.” Not a word I’m familiar with.
    Go ahead
    Have some cake
    If you don’t eat it all tonight it will just taunt you in the morning.
    I like the direction you took this.

      “If you don’t eat it all tonight it will just taunt you in the morning” is exactly what the little voice in my head told me last night when I was staring at deliciousness in the fridge. This comment made me laugh out loud.

    Great post. I once read something about how much regret passengers on Titanic must have had after passing on dessert (or seconds on dessert) that fateful night. I use that sometimes (yesterday) as an excuse to eat half a cake. Terrible, I know, but your post reminded me of it! Love the rebellion.
