Chocolate Cake Shake

Those words have been haunting me all week, "chocolate cake shake from Portillo's." It whispered in my ear as soon as I finished a grueling workout in the morning, later as a suggestion for lunch, a late night snack ...

My good friend mentioned she tried one a few days ago and it's all I can think about, like a song I can't get out of my head. And it doesn't help things when Portillo's is smelling distance from my house, I have to pass by just about anytime I go out.

Virtue report: I've been good this week, while still including my rda of chocolate. Lotsa fresh vegetables (little guy decided to try broccoli, and liked it!), whole grains. And my workout class has just about killed me ... "we're trying something new" she says, as we all groan. But there's also a success report, meaning I can zip up a zipper I couldn't a month ago! YAY! Not having a scale, success is measured in zippers.
And still that chocolate cake shake is tapping on my shoulder.

Sorry for doing that to you. It isn't fair. That shake is like crack. I've only had one and it's all I can think about. So I eat a salad instead. UGH! Glad the little man likes trees :)
