I know, it's just hard sometimes! The crazy thing is that I do have some days when I could eat just a nblibe of chocolate with the apple. But then there are the days, especially with aunt flow, when I could down the whole thing in a minute. And then there are the days when I tell Josh to take any sweets we have in the house to work! I can't handle it!
