Recently there have been many studies to help us appreciate the health benefits in a bar of chocolate. However, I am fairly certain that there are no studies asking the question, “How many chocolate bars does it take to move?” How much energy is put out? How much chocolate is required to supplement energy used?
I am pretty sure that there is no such study out there, but if you know of one please tell me.
We moved our family again this last Saturday. My husband lost his job near the end of February and we moved in with his mom at that time to save money. We both received job offers on the same day (can you believe it?) about six weeks ago. Since then we have been enduring long drives to work and were very blessed to house sit for a friend for a couple of weeks while we waited for our house to be ready.
Anyway, the moving marathon actually began Friday night when we had neighbors help pack us up. We went to bed very late and had to get up very early. While I was running around that morning I had not eaten breakfast and it was getting close to time to leave.
Many of you know that I have a chocolate stash that I divulge once a week for chocolate Friday. This week, I thought I would make an exception and have an extra chocolate bar for breakfast. I selected Green & Blacks 70% Bar.
Later that day we were busily unpacking and I did not feel like stopping to make lunch so I had another bar, the Potomac Chocolate 70% Nib.
Now as I sit here tired and sore, I am enjoying Amano Morobe… the beans are from Papa New Guinea. Yum… but I am still tired.
So I know that you have often wondered and now you know for the next time you move! It takes three chocolate bars… although I hope that none of you have to move any time soon.
Have a fabulous day!
