Chocolate Covered Almonds

OH MAN!!! They got me!!! Today, I had what I hope to be one of very few weak moments where chocolate is concerned. I ate very well today with one exception....CHOCOLATE COVERED ALMONDS!!!!!!

I had them on my mind all day for whatever reason and I resisted the urge to go to a store and pick some up until about 230pm when I could take it no more!!! LOL!!! I went to the store and picked up a small package...about 100 grams in weight!! The smallest I could find!! They were ridiculously sweet but there was something about the roasted almonds that made it taste really good!!! I really enjoyed it and wouldn't have felt guilty but I do...I feel guilty because I DID NOT WORK OUT AT ALL TODAY!! Today was supposed to be my cardio day (I usually have a Jiu-jitsu class at lunch time, however the dojo is closed until Jan 4!!!) That's no excuse and I really should have planned for this, but I didn't. Anyway, I slipped up, I acknowledge it and I WILL FIX IT!!

Tomorrow morning, I will hit my strength training session HARDCORE, I will also get a quick 30minute cardio session in as well and just continue along on the journey!!! The routine is a little off with the holiday season and everyone around being in a "festive" mood (myself included) ...but it should all get back to normal next week!! I will make it normal!! :)

That's it for today...
Until next time..

You know something? You are incredible.
And no amount of chocolate covered almonds can change that! The missed workout? Been there---But, we know that it is the exception, not the rule. Kind of like those chocolate covered almonds. It's good to occasionally enjoy something you truly love. And who doesn't love chocolate covered almonds. Oh my---I LOVE 'EM!!!!
You continue to be and will always be a big inspiration to many people, including me.
Thank you my friend,

Sean

I have thought about making these with some really dark chocolate, which would make them a more healthy snack. It is just a pain to make them.

It is funny how certain food cravings just get SO intense! I love chocolate almonds too, it sounds like you made a manageable choice but I understand the guilt factor as well. You are doing awesome!
