When will I ever learn????????????????I brought Tootsie roll pops to church with me today, because I found myself eating a couple of them every night, and that's just way too much sugar for me. Plus, it's a threat to my teeth, and I don't need to encourage having cavities at my age. So, I did what I have been doing the for past several weeks when confronted with goodies that are far too overwhelming for me, I packed the remaining lollipops into a little bundle with a rubber band, and gave them to the pastor's son for distribution among the kids who were allowed to have them. I love sharing the goodies, but if I could just keep them out of reach to start with, I wouldn't have to go through all the stress of fighting the urges and temptations that lead up to getting rid of the nuisance goodies. When, oh when, will I ever get a grip on this problem? At least I'm learning how to handle it after the fact, so maybe the next step will be to avoid it to start with. I used to be capable of doing that, but somehow, my resolve broke down along the way.
But that's what new days are all about, and one day at a time, I can overcome these temptations once again. The odd thing is that I DO resist temptation every day, but sometimes at night, when I'm sitting on the couch with my Kindle watching my movies and video series, I start taking mental inventory of my kitchen and what's in every cabinet and the fridge. Maybe I have to make up certain evening snacks for the couch and go to bed when the snacks are gone. Groan........that sounds like so much energy when I'm tired!!!!!!!!! 'Will keep you posted on progress! Please send along any suggestions.
PS. I can't go for a walk, I use a wheelchair.
