A Sweets Craving!!

Thursday, July 11, 2013

So yesterday afternoon I had a craving for a cupcake. Yes, I know it's not the best option to crave but it was there. So when hubby & I went to Walmart after work I picked one up, we had some stuff to do around the house when we got home... so I stuck it in the fridge with the intention of eating it later.

Well by the time I got done doing everything that I needed to do I was all sweaty (working outside in the Texas heat will do that to you!!) so I showered first, then I ate dinner by then I didn't want it anymore.

LOL yes I know they say distraction is the best thing for cravings & I know it's true but I just thought I'd share that I was overcome eating a whole cupcake (it's the cake part that I wanted, not so much the frosting). I did however cave and have 4 spoonfuls of ice cream when I made the kids an ice cream cone.

In the end I consider it a victory. Everything in moderation. LOL it could have been worse. I could have had an ice cream cone but chose not to!!

emoticon Yay me!!

    Awesome job. I think that shows how strong you are and it will get easier with time...I keep telling myself that and I know it is true.

    Here is the thing.. you made so many smart choices.. no bad choices here.. everything in moderation is right and if you bite and count it .. all good. Ice Cream but no cone, cake but no frosting, or no cake at all..

Your changing and that is huge.. even if you indulge it is not the end of life as we know it . Track it and move on .. it is when we indulge every day or multiple times a day it is a problem .. not once in awhile.. we still have to live our life.
