Dear Death by Chocolate...It wasn't you, it was me



Dear Death By Chocolate,

It wasn't you, it was me. I know we enjoyed today being together, but I just had to have something that gave more in the relationship. That appreciated me for who I am and what I'm doing. Though you are always there for me, moderation is key for this relationship to work. I know it's better if we only see each other sometimes. We will cherish and savor those sometimes meetings. I've met someone I need to tell you about. Cookie Dough Greek Yogurt is always there for me by building me back up after a hard work. Those days like today I had doubled (beautiful run and  relaxing bike), I need something that will fill my body the right way. This isn't a goodbye. Please understand I need the respect Mr. Greek Yogurt gives me when my body needs to rebuild.

Till next time and with lots of love,
Edie
