The first quote (Unknown author) and the last one (Estee Lauder) both talked about sticking with it and that is the kind of push I need around me. I often get the other thing--"Hey, Mom, do you want some brownies?" or "I brought you home a Snickers." That is not helpful, but if I could hang on to the sentiments that those two wise people shared, I would be better off!

Well this is one of the times being house bound is an advantage. And on the internet you can choose what ads you will view. Since my husband does the shopping and I do the home stuff, I am not so exposed to cues and triggers.
Did anyone read the Daily Spark blog about cravings and temptations and cues? Here is the link if not

With the holiday that is often synonymous with chocolate bunnies and cream eggs upon us, it seemed logical to consider temptation. It is hard for anyone to walk by their favorite color of jelly beans when they seem to be everywhere--and those pretty pastel-wrapped candies call out to many of us, even when we wouldn't normally be moved by their regularly wrapped counterparts.

These quotes go beyond the idea of "hanging in there" or "manning up and resisting the temptation." They give us a bit to think of and at least a couple of them give us the thoughts of very famous people who dealt with their own "willpower" or temptation issues. Take a moment and share how at least one of these relates to your own needs with temptations--These temptations can range from holiday to chocolate to skipping exercise or dealing with soda or more. Would you find it helpful to copy one of these quotes to act as a reminder to yourself this week? Which one? Why??
