DALID14 responds to my convenience store tale of woe and tells me how to avoid snack aisle temptations . . . which is very helpful. She just talks to the stuff and orders it to remain on the shelves!! And it works for her . . .
I responded as below:
Love your snack aisle conversations -- inspiring! In grocery stores I can pretty much avoid the snack aisle -- although the ice cream is in the same freezer section as the frozen mixed berries and frozen veggies which I do want . . . The convenience store is of course tougher with all the great stuff within eyesight! And I don't usually go to the convenience store with the ice cream . . . . sigh. Will try to avoid it in future!! Most of will power for me is simply avoiding temptation in the first place.
How come I have to keep learning that will power isn't the key? It's avoiding temptation. Really. And when I went into that particular convenience store yesterday I was well aware it was "the one" with the ice cream.
Shoulda kept on driving.
Shoulda just gone to my regular convenience store!
The newspapers are the same everywhere, right??
