My new challenge is learning to ignore the temptation of eating too much food through the holidays. Just a few small strategies go a long way. Today I worked at a desk where a wonderful teacher left a candy bar for me. It took me lots of strategizing to leave that snack alone all day long.
First, I ate my healthy snacks.
Next, I focused on my students.
Third, I drank my water.
Fourth, I drank my tea.
Finally, when I had time, I picked up the candy bar, and quietly said; "I'm going to blog about how I did NOT eat you." I put the Twix Bar back down on the desk, and finished my day.
I hope that it is gone by morning. If not, I'll replay the whole process again, or just throw it in the trash.
How do you deal with the unwanted food gifts?
