I think I'm Getting Stronger!

Monday, January 14, 2013

Yesterday afternoon I went to the Grocery Store because I needed more healthy food so I stay on track and keep doing well! So I walked in with my belly somewhat full & my list in my hand and at first everything went well but as I walked my carriage past the Bakery I realized I was running into trouble. There were soo many Sales and it was soo difficult to stay on task! I started tapping my nails alot on my Grocery Carriage and I was just trying to not reach out & grab anything bad! So I reached into my pocket & pulled out my Gum and shoved 2 pieces in my mouth & starting really chewing hard because I was fighting alot of temptations! So than I started basically speed walking my cart faster but than I ran into a real traffic jam around the section where A Display of Lays Potato Chips were right in front of me & wouldn't you know they were on sale 2 Bags for $5.00! I was like Oh comeon you gotta be kidding me! I looked at the Display saw my favorite Omg Cheddar Sour Cream & yes it was difficult! I thought yum those would taste soo good but than for the first time ever I also thought of something else! I thought yes those Chips would be soo yummy but Why would I ruin all the Healthy Eating & Exercising I have done to have those Chips! And after I thought about that I finally got out of that traffic of carts & grabbed my Greek Yogurt & went to the checkout. I believe after that experience I am getting stronger and yes I don't know if I have won for good but I know from my situation yesterday Victory was Mine and I enjoyed it! I just thought I share my story with my Sparkfriends and anyone who wishes to read it! Alright everyone keep on working hard & remember that we are stronger than we know! Have a great day everyone! :)

    What a great story. Whether you have "won for good" or not, each victory like that makes you stronger and helps you cope better and THAT is "for GOOD" each time it happens.
