Ok so today I ate lunch so I was not hungry and I was good and relaxed so I felt good about going into the store to pick up the gluten free bread that I cannot get during my regular shopping. I am in the store and have bread in hand and I pass a display of snack. HOLY MOLY. I am rooted to the spot and I think I may be drooling. I am consumed by the thought of eating something...ANYTHING!!! I circled the display looking for gluten free options, checking calories. Debating, justifying in an absolute panic trying to find a reason why it would be ok to indulge. I literally panted through the worst of it.... a good 5 minutes before I got myself to the cash and paid for my bread. I DID IT!!!!! YAHOOOOOOOOOO. I left without a snack and felt completely normal again within 10mins.
This is the first time I can remember where I caught the craving before it won and was able to work my way through it. I did a hunger check and realized I wasn't hungry. I though about having to track it before eating it and decided it wasn't worth it and I thought of my goals.
The next time will be easier to spot and deal with. What a fabulous day :)
