It can be easy to complete a major workout and then tell yourself you deserve the reward/treat. Truth is not having the treat is the reward because your not negating all your hard work. Plus it gets you closer to your goals by not having the treat.

Well done on managing your craving! I bet you were so pleased to know that you could do it (insert round-of-applause here)!
Me? Before Sparks, Ben & Jerry's ice cream was a particular land mine. Partially due to the fact that I never put it in a bowl; I'd just grab a pint container (they're single serve, aren't they? lol) & a spoon.
Once I got a digital scale, I began weighing what a true "serving" was (1/2 cup!!) but not w/ Ben & Jerry's, since it's still my kryptonite. Rather, I've found other options that are still super yummy (so I don't feel deprived) and I measure those out. Talenti makes a fab gelato and I'll choose certain lower cal options of those.
No more eating w/ spoon out of the container for this girl...that in & of itself was an achievement.
I wanted ice cream sooo bad last night but after my river walk, we were going to stop for ice cream.. in the long run by the end, I no longer craved it and forced myself to drive past the restaurant to where it has my favorite ice cream treats.. This is the only junk food that I have yet to give up
It was a huge deal to me, but oh, the pride I felt when I pulled into my driveway
I would LOVE to hear of others who did the same thing.. for this is the motivation that feels good and it was extra calories that we didn't need.
