You did WHAT?

Hi fellow darers (cor, is that a word? LOL).

Here is my dare for this week. Marieke and Lesley have already explained the rules. If you're not sure check it out below.....

My dare is all about my chocolate addiction. Yes, I did say addiction. LOL. Its something I've wanted to scrap for ages, but never knew how to. So this was perfect.

I've used a heap of tin foil as a major part of the backing, to tie in with a chocolate bar wrapper. But there is also a dark purple background (hard to see due to scan, but matches the cadbury purple perfectly) which goes around the whole edge.

The journalling reads:

Often I find myself talking to myself…

Myself: You did WHAT?

Self: Yep, ate the whole darn thing.

Myself: Why?

Self: I dunno? It was there.

Myself: Then you did WHAT?

Self: Replaced it so no one would know.

Myself: ARGH!

I’ve battled with my weight for as long as I can remember. It’s in the genes (well that’s what I tell myself). I’ve never liked vegetables and have struggled with cooking. But I was lucky, I loved exercise which allowed me to maintain a ‘normal’ weight. Then I got pregnant, had twins and time vanished. I still ate all that junk, but wasn’t exercising. The weight slowly grew and the inner turmoil began. You know the one where you tell yourself it won’t matter, then half an hour later you’re feeling guilty? Yeah, well this time its going to be different. My goals are different, my ideas are realistic. I know I have to watch my eating, but I also know I need to start exercising and I remember how much I love it. Not long now and those inner demons will be banished. Well, that’s the aim!
