Turning Down Temptation

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Last night, I wanted to eat. I wasn't hungry, I wasn't thirsty, I just wanted to eat.
I didn't. Instead, I watched a little tv. Cleaned the kitchen (again) and went to bed.

I knew I wasn't hungry, I was just bored.

OTOH, today I wanted a bite of macaroni salad. I knew I had room for it in all of my nutrution categories so I had about 1/4 cup. It satisfied my craving and it was all I needed.

I know there are going to be days where I will make excuses and have that "thing" that I prolly shouldn't. For example, my birthday is next week and I love me a good cake with buttercream frosting. Mmmm Mmmm. However, my family has been told that I don't want a cake from Costco....regardless of how many people are coming. Instead, I want a cupcake with buttercream and if there are any left at the end of the night, they can go home with my friends. I know if it's in the house, it will tempt me. Time to keep the junk out of the house.

Eventually, this will become easier and I won't have to keep reminding myself that everything that goes in my mouth counts. It will just be a healthy habit.

Keep the good fight, fellow Sparkers!

    This is a smart idea! I love buttercream too! My mom decorated cakes with her homemade buttercream frosting. Your friends will like having a piece to take home if there are leftovers and then it is out of your house, out of sight out of mind. emoticon

    I did the same thing with Chocolate covered pretzels today! I had a thinsations pack at lunch, and then went and worked out JUST because I wanted another one.

    And damnit, it tasted awesome.
