Resisting Temptation - and SOOO Excited!!
Tuesday, September 14, 2010
I have been struggling a little bit this past week, and was bound and determined that today would be a perfect "food" day for me. And then, as it always happens, someone in the office baked last night and brought goodies today. I managed to avoid the temptation all morning, and then lunch time hit. I ate my lunch, as planned, and had a sudden sweet craving. I walked by the monster bars (and they were literally monsters calling me!) and re-filled my water glass, praying that I would suddenly feel full from lunch and not "need" a treat. And IT WORKED!! I am full, and the craving is gone. It is so nice to be able to prove to myself that I don't really have to have dessert after every meal, and when I eat properly I can feel full! That is not to say that I will never eat a home baked treat again, but I managed to resist temptation when I really wanted to, and it feels GREAT!
