Tyranny of Pies

November 15, 2007 at 1:26 pm (Dieting and Fitness)

I am fearful that I am going to have some Lost Weekend-type incident with pies.  And that weekend may very well be next week, since Thanksgiving is the Pie Holiday of All Time.  Pies are now stalking me.  Suddenly, this morning, next to my fat free yogurt, appeared a chocolate silk pie in the employee fridge.

    Worry only when dreams of pies become Jungian I guess, and connect with some primal imagery. Other Pie fantasies are easily combatted with over cognition.

    And anyway chocolate silk anything is decadent by design.

    This was no dream! I lived this horror! Yesterday there was only pumpkin pie in the employee fridge. This morning, someone had placed a chocolate pie right next to my meagre victuals.

    This is high pie season. Perhaps the WW website has strategies to deal with the tyranny.

    Perhaps to could create your own healthy confection, something fruit based with a drizzle of dark chocolate. When I did WW, I found that a banana with a dusting of cocoa or drizzle of choxie goodness got me through many a rough afternoon.

    I remember that banana recipe, and I use it often.

    Funnily enough, today I don’t want a pie. Perhaps my ear-tooth-headache has something to with that. Right now I just want to lie down with a blankie and a teething ring and sob softly.

    Pie. Yes, that is a worry.
    I say, pick a pie and have one and only one slice no more than once a day. And you may have no other sweet treat that day.
    Is the pie worth it to you then?
    I just ate the rest of my birthday cake, so do as I say and not as I do.

    Mama Ass, yesterday I, too, ate birthday cake. For dinner. But somehow I managed to lose 2 lbs this week; so I allowed myself the indulgence. No pie or cake today, though. Gardenburgers and exercise.

    I ate some pie today!! I will eat more pie tomorrow. And probably even more pie over the weekend. Fuck the world. I like pie. Seamstresses and alterations exist for a reason. That reason is pie.

    In that case, let me revise my previous comment. I wish I could help console you with whiskey and pie.

    Caramel Pecan haunts my dreams…
