PB M&M's

Wednesday, February 02, 2011

Last night my incredible lovely HB brought home my favorite ymmuy bag of PB M&M's. To my horrible delight he bought the BIG bag..... To my dismay I immediatly opened the bag and ate 8 right off the top without even thinking about it.. wow were they good first... then we had dinner and my HB says " hey did you eat all your fruit and vegs today?"..... I immediately said of course.. I counted the M&M's! .. well he told me that those did not count as fruit and vegs.. then I had to explain that I am still working on my will power and as much as I love that he thought of doing something sweet for me those probably were not the best choice right now. I went on to say that strawberrys are a good choice, blueberries, fruit and well anything else that looks healthy. Now my HB is not a silent man he always says whats on his mind.. .but the bumbfounded look and puzzlement that came with this question I dont think I will ever forget :

" So let me get this straight, just so that I understand.. you dont want no more Peanut Butter M&M's? And NO candy, no valentines chocolates, and no more Diet Pepsi... You want fruit and exercise Games?... your really serious... OK then ... " he slowly turned around and said " IF your serious then I will support you and not buy anything more but you can not waste this one bag of PB M&M's.. it was the last one at the store....

So I gave half to my daughter last night ( nope he did not notice ) ate a few this morning ( which I felt horrible after doing so) so my plan is to give the rest to her when she gets home from school!

The really bummer thing is that I really love PB M&M's but I figure if I can get this down DP should be a piece of cake!

    That's awesome that he's willing to support you!

    Interesting thing about willpower - I don't think I've found any, more just keep my internal watchdog on and crafted some solid mental defenses. I just turn the situation around instead of saying "no": Would I be willing to trade my efforts for this cookie, or would I be willing to trade a cookie for all the ground I've gained? Usually the latter wins. :)

    It can be tough - but once you make strides you'll find your niche and what works for you!
