If it's not in the house I can't eat it...

Saturday, June 02, 2012


I've been struggling a little bit with some things in my life, one of them being simply not feeling "inspired" to workout. I also have a little case of the blues, adjusting to some changes. So for some insane reason, I found myself in the kitchen this evening, snarfing down some really high cal trail mix (well duh...could it be emotional eating?).

Oh my, it was heaven but with each bite I knew was acting directly against what the better part of me knew was in my best interest. Yet I kept taking bite after bite after bite.

Finally, frustrated with myself, I put the bag back in the cabinet...

...then I turned around, got the bag back out of the cabinet and...

...dumped the rest down the disposal, grinding it to smithereens.

I feel strangely proud for getting rid of it.

If it's not in the house, I can't eat it. No more trail mix in my house!

    I have been fighting the blues as well actually just posted a blog about it... Congratz to You on that big step of getting rid of the temptation... I try my hardest to keep the things i love to munch on out of the house.... out of sight out of mind... unless You dig through cupboards out of boredom or emotions... hence the reason for not even keeping in the house... sorry if i am rambling.... oh btw I love your kitty background.....

    emoticon emoticon emoticon GREAT job getting it out of the house!! That is a tough one for me because I always feel bad "wasting" food. I know very silly, but it was ingrained. I am proud of you for doing that, very BIG step. I hope that you can get rid og the "blues" just like you did the trail mix. Best wishes, and {{HUGS}} to feel more inspired soon!
