My biggest erroneous thought that sabotages my success with staying away from things like sugar and caffeine is this...
For example, I've got a long streak going on both of them. No cravings lately,so it's not about that.
But I get into the "it's too boring without them" or "life's too short for deprivation" or "these are nothing compared to more dangerous substances -live it up!" (There is no such thing as moderation with sugar for me.)
Being a smart person, I know the responses to each of those thoughts, but it's not about a rational decision but rather an immature emotional one. And on days when everything is going badly, that's when these types of thoughts creep in.
My yard leak is back and plumber will be back again on Tuesday morning to continue trying to detect its origin. For the past month, no discernable leak, so it may be a slow one that takes a few weeks to accumulate before it shows. Whatever, but this means a HUGE job and major bucks for the repair.
Meanwhile, I'm getting ready to walk around the beautiful lake with a friend in a little while and will try not to think about it. Or about caffeine and sugar.
Wishing all a fun day.
