It probably sounds like a joke to many, but SUGAR is my drug of choice. There is no "just a little taste" in existence for me. Too many times I have played that game, and I don't like the end result. However, just this week I was able to resist a rediculously indulgent pot luck at work (pizza, dips, sweet sugary treats) as well as the leftovers in the break room the next day! In the past I would have told myself that a little would be okay, but for the goals I have set for myself and the fact that I am unwilling to regress ever again, I was able to stick to the healthy lunch and snacks that I had packed and gave myself a pat on the back for making this baby step of progress. Then I came home and had an awesome workout each day--yay me!
