Hear ye.

From now until my hairy little legs land in Paris, I am swearing off chocolate.

The purpose of this is twofold:

1) So I can look less fat in my Paris pictures than I would look if I continued on this destructive path I’m on, eating chocolate for the next five months, and

2) So that when my hairy little legs do land in Paris they can be in perfect condition to race around the city as fast as they can carry me on my quest to consume the best chocolate my (few) francs can buy, and enjoy it like I have never enjoyed chocolate before, nor will again until the next time I find myself in Europe.

(Just kidding I know France goes by the Euro system now.)

I guess by that rationalisation I should also swear off bread, pastry, marshmallows, cream/créme, cheese, pretty much any dairy of any sort, smoked salmon, wine, and frozen pizza. (I consumed many a French frozen pizza in my time as a Belgian nanny and I promise they taste better than American/Canadian.)

I would complain about it but there would be no point, since I am one hundred percent aware that my sacrifice will absolutely not be in vain.

    Wow, no chocolate! Good luck! I’ve tried that at least 3 times so far… Lent and a couple monthly resolutions. Results so far? FAIL. I’ll be so inspired that you can do it, and for my inspiration, I’m going to find a nice Kit Kat bar calling my name

    You should also decide which pair of shoes you will do most of your walking shoes in and get them broken in!!!

    Before I can cheer you on with this all or nothing method, please consider that chocolate does have health benefits. I won’t recommend dark (although it does have more antioxidants) because I can’t stand the stuff myself. Chocolate also has potassium and magnesium, good things to have! If I use the list you gave me- some dairy is high in saturated fat but you don’t want to miss out on the calcium or vitamin D. The wonderful oil in salmon will give you amazing skin, wine again with the antioxidants, and frozen pizza…well…THAT I can agree on. Don’t get too carried away, you don’t want to restrict yourself so much you end up Willy Wonka!
