This has been a very rough weekend. We had guests for dinner Sat. and not only did that include apple rhubarb pie, (which I did not eat), my husband decides he wants to show our guests how to make caramel popcorn! Fresh, hot caramel popcorn! - I managed through without eating any. Then I get to church this morning and what would greet me there? Hot fresh out of the oven caramel rolls! Oh my! Well I had a hard boiled egg and a few grapes instead. Then my husband and I head off to a wake for a family member and when I get in the car my husband is snacking on a big bag of caramel corn! AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!
I find it amazing when I have set my mind to eat better how much there is out there to temp me to give up. I managed to be disciplined this time - but the rest of my life with such a continuous stream of unhealthy options that must be resisted! Can I keep it up?? If this is for me then I certainly do need God's help.
Whew! Just had to vent a little. Very big struggle.
