Me vs. chocolate chips: I win!
Tuesday, February 12, 2013
Ha ha! Today was one day when the daily visualization from Spark Coach really paid off. It was the suggestion that I should picture a past episode when I made a bad food choice, and then replay it in my head, but this time changing the ending to a GOOD food choice!
And, lo and behold, the moment came after dinner, the moment when both boys are in bed and we are downstairs again, washing dishes...the moment when the baking cupboard sings out its siren song of sweetness--just a few chocolate chips, just a handful, a tablespoon even, just to satisfy that craving! But no! I realized before walking over to the cupboard what was happening, and spoke sternly to the chocolate chips through the cupboard door. No, I will not give in to you. I will not eat a handful of you! I will prevail!
And, darn it, I did. Not chocolate for me tonight. I am going to make it through today at least, no weak moments. I will have cake for sure later this week. But today, I am treat free and content.
