Eye Spy... my secret (food) shame

This week I was lucky enough to be asked by Cindy to choose this weeks theme. However when I actually thought about mine I realised I probably have too many... until recently, I did like to indulge in the occasional small cheeseburger meal, or chips and gravy from KFC... in fact Kym was quoted in the Courier-Mail a couple of months ago saying something similar with a chiko roll when asked what chefs liked to eat but hate to admit it. But I'm trying to be better. We're trying to be better. We're trying to be healthier. I'm not eating as much crap as I once did. Well I wasn't until last Friday when my sister and I did our weekly shopping at Coles (to help raise money for the 2009 Bushfire Appeal) I couldn't walk past the chocolate isle and not purchase a block of this... Now it's no secret to anybody just how much I love chocolate, but I've normally been buying Green & Blacks Maya in an attempt to not scoff. (There may have been a time only a few short months ago when I was eating 3 blocks a week). However I resisted and purchased this block of milk chocolate. Which was gone in its entirity by 10pm (I didn't even get home from the supermarket until 5pm...). What was worse though was I tried to put the wrapper in the bin (above pic) before Kym could see I ate a whole block in a day... which he saw the next morning and still enjoyed giving me shit for being such a little piggy :P So I guess I was a little embarrassed which is why this week it's my secret shame.

Head on over to Bugandpop to play along.

I love green and blacks but I haven't tried that one. I try not to buy any when I go food shopping because I just know I won't be able to resist temptation!

Bek said...

yes, sometimes it is hard to stop. I can totally relate! THanks for this week's theme!

It was a great theme this week! Nothing like a small indulgence with a bit of nice chocolate (its only dire if you are eating cooking chocolate!)

Honestly, who can resist? Sounds like we all have that secret chocolate loving shame : )

AnastasiaC said...

well you should know its so very hard to keep a block of chocolate for longer than a day...i can relate but balance is the key...a little overindulging doesnt harm every now and then!
i make sure ive got a full stomach when i hit the supermarket otherwise I go crazy and spend loads more too!

As a fellow chocaholic, it is perfectly understandable.

At first glance at your forlorn little chocolate wrapper lying in the bin, I thought the emblem was a piggy, which would have been an encouragement to eat the block at one sitting. But no, on closer inspection it's an elephant. Is there a hidden message here?

(ok, not sure if mmmmmmmmm is a word, but I'm counting it :P)

5 hours isn't so bad for a block of chocolate....surely ;)

I'm a secret chocolate scoffer too. Can't help myself!

I hear ya! This too is my secret shame food... of the Cadbury variety though.

Sometimes you just have to have it, and no amount of dark chocolate can substitute.
