Tempted? Wait 5 minutes!


Thursday, October 17, 2013

Today I avoided a bad food choice by just putting it off for 5 minutes. I enjoyed the white truffle ghost so much that just a little ice cream today did not seem right.
When I splurge, I will really enjoy it. A little ice cream would have left me wanting more. Instead, I came home and made a vegetable soup. When itís splurge time, I will have something really tasty!
Todayís enjoyment comes from enjoying the fall foliage.

    WOW1 I just posted a blog and decided to come to the Weblog site, and so glad I did!! Your advice is so simple, should be so obvious, but something I never think of. emoticon for the reminder. Today's a good day; I'm getting so many blessings just by staying on track. emoticon

    I find i need to distract myself when i get a craving. sometimes all i need is that 5-10 minutes and then i no longer want it.

    That's a great idea! Also when I'm tempted I try to drink a glass of water. (getting those 8 glasses in a day is still hard)

    I try to avoid giving in to the impulse for a bit, but sometimes, I just keep thinking about the splurge!

I know I'm changing because my "impulse buying" tends more towards things like BRUSSELS SPROUTS!
