I'm at War

With Peanut Butter.
The girl on the left? Yeah, she's the one with all the willpower to say NO to peanut butter.
The one who reads the label each time, walking away in shock at 16g fat for 2 tablespoons.
The good girl who acknowledges how much time she needs to exercise to burn off that peanut butter.

The little devil on the right?
Oh my, that is the one who, all week, has convinced me it's worth it.
The one who taught me how delicious a slice of peanut butter toast goes with coffee. The gooey, melted peanut butter goes so, so well with warm coffee. The coffee streams through the film in your mouth that the peanut butter laid there. They coordinate so nicely together, coffee and peanut butter toast.

The little devil also has me enjoying a scoop (or 2...or 3...let's be honest here) of peanut butter stirred with some chocolate syrup, ya know, to curb a chocolate craving.

This has been my war on peanut butter.
I try to avoid it, then I fail & indulge.
It's been oh so good, yet oh so bad for me.
I need to stop losing the battles and win this damn war.

Only now, I think it's to the point where I need back-up.
Me: 0     Peanut Butter: 5

Don't hate me, but I have five words for you: Grilled Peanut Butter & Honey Sandwich.

You're welcome. Or I'm sorry. Whichever you feel is more appropriate. :)

I'm totally craving one now after reading your post. So if your goal was to get others to share in your war, you won. LOL! I think I know what I'll be making for breakfast tomorrow!

You are too funny :) I guess I don't eat/think about peanut butter that much. We only live once. Supposedly once I reach about 28 I will not be able to eat what I want, so I'm enjoying the next 18 months. :D
