Hey, it's that time of year again. Could be good news could be bad news. However you look at it, there's heart-shaped candy everywhere you turn. Some's good, some's bad. Either way, the temptation to indulge is at its zenith. (Ok, Easter's just around the corner, but it's only February so let's not push it!)
Most of us with significant others have probably told them time and time again, "Don't buy me chocolates!" But, in our Valentine's heart of hearts, isn't a big box of chocolates and a beautiful bouquet of red roses the quintessential gift of love? Give the guy a break and let him do something nice for you!
So whether you have a lover or you're on your own (again), don't let the chocolate factor get you down. Buy yourself your favorite chocolates (none of that waxy stuff!), and indulge. Just take a couple , you don't have to eat the whole box in a fit of depression – they'll be there tomorrow. Give yourself permission. Enjoy. One or two chocolates never made anyone fat.
Besides, there's always Easter…
