Put It Back


Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Okay folks, I'm just gonna throw it out there.

I. Love. To. Eat.

I do. I love sweets and salts, meats and veggies.

I have (mostly) only healthy foods at my apartment, that way if I'm gonna stuff my face, at least it won't be purely crap. Lately, when I have the urge to munch, I grab a light string cheese.

The stuff's delicious. I have one in my lunch every day. So not only am I snacking on this cheese when I shouldn't be, I'm using a food that has been earmarked for my work lunches.

Bad Shelby.

It's only after I eat it that I scold myself. 'I shouldn't have eaten that.'

Last night, I reached for that scrumptious cheesy snack. I stared at it. I whispered sweet nothings to it. Okay, not really. But I really, REALLY wanted to eat it.

I took a deep sigh. And put it back.

I felt in control. Sure, it was only a stick of cheese. And in the grand scheme, it wouldn't have undone all my progress. But in that moment, I showed that cheese who was boss.

I'm the boss.

It felt good.

And that is my cheesy story of the day. Womp womp.

Make it a great week, my Lovelies!!

    It may seem small, but it's these little decisions day in and day out that add up to continued progress. This is something I'm struggling with right now. I need to get back on track. But kudos to you for taking control and making good decisions!

  Good for you, Shelby---showing you are the "boss"...
I get that same feeling lately when co-workers bring donuts to the breakroom. I feel such power when I can just "look" and walk away! Truth is, I can now do this with less temptation, and I feel I am "boss" too! lol Happy day to you!

    good for you! I love/hate it when I do things like that...which is FAR better than the "WTF did I do that for" moment when I see the pile of Lindt wrappers on the coffee table... :)

    I need to follow your lead and start putting back snacks (even the healthy ones) when I am really not truly hungry. String cheese is a tough one - DElicious. Laughing cow is right up there, too, while we're talking cheese. Love. I can be strong though, I just know it.

    I think I would rather eat a good cheese than a dessert!! I also bring cheese in my lunch, only I get the Laughing Cow Light Mini Baby Belle cheeses. I have 2 of them, and because they're light, they are only 100 calories for the 2 of them!!

    Never look a small victory in the mouth. Or something like that. Pat yourself on the back and keep pushing forward.

    Yay! I seriously could have written your blog though, I've been doing the same things. "Oh, this is for my lunch tomorrow? *nom nom* guess I'm getting Subway...again..."

Luckily the torrential downpour just ended so it looks like I'll be able to run my cheese sticks off tonight!

    I LOVE food too! And cheese, oh cheese, what a delightfully sinful joy for your tastebuds. If I have a block of cheese in the fridge, it never last long. Sometimes it doesn't even make it to being shredded for say tacos. Nope I gotta go buy more cuz I munched on it a little too much.

    Oh Shelbz - pretty sure that was the title of one of most recent blogs, you copycat!

Same thing, but mine was Cheetos. Not even remotely, halfway can be considered healthy!!
